07171 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR

In 1954, under the leadership of Dipl. Ing. Rudolf Uhlenhaut, Mercedes-Benz developed a new racing sports car for the 1955 season. This open car designated 300 SLR relied on the technology of the current Formula I racing car. In 1955 Uhlenhaut, Head of the Test Dept at Mercedes-Benz, redesigned the 300 SLR giving it coupé bodywork with gull-wing doors. The car also had Formula I technology. Thus its 8-cylinders in-line engine, which is clearly visible under the movable bonnet of the model, generated all of 300 bhp. In the 1950s the 300 SLR Coupé, only two examples of which were built, had a top speed of 290 km/h, making it the fastest car licensed for the road.
