Description of the original vehicle: For the development of a race car for the 1924 Targa Florio, Ferdinand Porsche was appointed the new chief designer at Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft. Under his peronal direction, the 1923 compressor engine was carefully studied and then modified with a series of ground-breaking innovations. As a result, its maximum output was increased to 126 hp (later up to 150 hp).

On April 27, 1924, racing against the toughest competition, Christian Werner drove his two-liter supercharged Mercedes with starting #10 to a double victory at the Targa and Coppa Florio in Sicily. His teammates Christian Lautenschlager and Alfred Neubauer finished 2nd and 3rd for the Targa Florio and then took 10th and 13th places respectively for the Coppa Florio.

The Mercedes race cars wore an unusua livery for these two races. Instead of the white German racing color, they were painted a red Italian racing color. With this move, the Mercedes pilots were able to steer clear of possible stone throws from hot-tempered Italian spectators who could be hostile to non-Italian race cars.
Technical data of the original vehicle:
  1. Motor: 4-cylinder-inline-engine M 7294
  2. Displacement: 1.989 ccm
  3. Maximum output: 126 hp with compressor at 4.500 rpm (later up to 5.000/rpm)
  4. Top speed: 120 km/h
  5. Wheel base: 2,700 mm
  6. Total length: 3.800 mm
  7. Seats available: 2

CMC Mercedes Benz Targa Florio, 1924

Modèle superbe par sa présence, le carter inférieur est en cuivre vernis, magnifique. Voiture victorieuse de la Targa Florio en 1924 avec Christian Werner. Le vainqueur recevait le célèbre trophée de la Plaque en or (plaque=Targa en italien) gravée par l’artiste de renom René Lalique et montrant une voiture en course sur fond de paysage sicilien. Dans la Saga Mercedes Benz ce véhicule mérite bien sa place.
