The self-propelled cart was designed to be a visual wonder for those who saw it. It was to be spring-powered where the cart would be pushed backwards to wind up the springs, then when the brakes were released, it would move forward. As the mechanism unwound, blocks in the drive would shift the pivoting front wheel to shift its direction periodically. Total range of the cart was estimated at over 100 feet using materials available today, but the design was never built in Leonardo's time as the designer either didn't have the right materials or capabilities to bring his self-powered cart to life.
