Description of the original vehicle: The 1952 "Carrera Panamericana" marked the biggest adventure of the year for the Mercedes-Benz racing department, whose performance in this race brought its long, successful history to a new height. Consisting of four cars and a huge crew led by "Alfred Neubauer", the Mercedes-Benz team flew to Mexico in November 1952. The 300 SL was powered by a newly-developed 3.1-liter engine with a maximum output of 177 hp. The race, which lasted five days and covered over 3,000 km, was highly dramatic. When it finally came to an end, Mercedes-Benz 300 SL had not only set a new track record, but also won a double victory.

This model car is an exact replica of Hermann Lang's car that won the 2nd place and bore the starting number 3. This item is offered as a limited edition.

CMC Mercedes 300 SL N°3 Panaméricana 1952

Voiture mythique victorieuse de l’édition Carrera Panaméricana de 1952 à 163 km/h de moyenne sur 3113 km. Le modèle CMC a une jolie prestance, élément indispensable dans une collection pour commémorer cette première victoire dans cette course allant du Guatemala aux Etats Unis en traversant le Mexique de part en part.
