The Original

In 1954 a special and unique hand built vehicle appeared from the workshops of Damler-Benz: The Mercedes Benz racing transporter.

With its deep blue coloured Damler-Bnez paintwork,the soft curves of the chassies and the max speed of 170 km/h it caused just as much wonderment as the racing cars W 196 and 300 SLR on the loading bed.

After Damler-Benz withdrew from Formula 1 racing at the end of the 1955 this vehicle disappeared from the public view. Sadly the original was scrapped in 1967. At the beginning of the 1990’s Damler-Benz recalled this souvenir and under the direction of the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center a replica of the original was again constructed,bringing the solitaire “back to life”.

On the occasion of the 100 year company anniversary parade for the brand Mercedes-Benz in 2001 the racing car transporter was presented to an excited public at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood in South England.

Technical data of the original vehicle:

  • 6-cylinder in line engine (300 SL)

  • Fuel direct injection

  • Max output 192 hp at 5.500 rpm

  • Displament:2.996 cm

  • Topspeed:170 km / h

  • Tank volume: 150 L

  • Width:2.000 mm

  • Total weight:2.100 kg
