Description of the original vehicle: In 1931, both Alfa Romeo and Bugatti became tough competitors against Mercedes-Benz. As a Counter-measure Mercedes developed a light-weight version of the "White Elephant" originally designed by Ferdinand Porsche. The nickname referred to the unbelievable power, bulky size, and white painting of the vehicle. It shed an unbelievable 125 kilograms by having holes drilled in all parts of the frame that were not safety-related. The lightened SSK became the SSKL.

A storm of sensation arose in April 1931. For the first time a non-Italian won the world-famous Mille Miglia. Driving his Mercedes-Benz SSKL, Rudolf Caracciola won a victory of historic proportion. This victory seems even more amazing since Caracciola had received inadequate support from Mercedes due to the ongoing global economic crisis.

  1. Engine: Six cylinder in-line-engine with overhead camshaft
  2. Compressor that can be activated when required
  3. Displacement: 7,059 ccm
