Description of the original vehicle: In 1954 a special and unique hand-built vehicle emerged from the workshops of Daimler-Benz – the Mercedes-Benz racing car transporter. With its deep blue Daimler-Benz paintwork, the soft curves of the body, and a maximum speed of 170 km/h, it caused just as much fascination as the W196 and 300 SLR racing cars on the loading bed.

After Daimler-Benz withdrew from Formula 1 racing at the end of 1955, this vehicle disappeared from public view. Sadly, the original was scrapped in 1967.

In the early 1990’s, Daimler-Benz resurrected this treasure. Under the direction of the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, a replica of the original was constructed, bringing this unique vehicle back to life.

To mark the occasion of the Mercedes-Benz 100th anniversary in 2001, the racing car transporter was shown to an excited public at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in South England.
Technical data of the original vehicle:
  1. Engine: Six-cylinder in-line engine (300 SL)
  2. Fuel direct injection
  3. Displacement: 2,996 ccm
  4. Maximum output: 192 hp at 5,500 rmp
