The Original

Count Carlo Trossi is descended from the Castle Caglinico in Piemont, Italy. He loved motor sport and was an amateur racing driver.

In 1931, he took over the racing team of Enzo Ferrari becoming its second president and won the very good second place at the Mille Miglia in 1932.

In 1932, Count Trossi bought the chassis of the Mercedes SSK no. 36038 together with the engine no. 77640 at Mercedes in Rome.

The English bodyworker Willie White gave the huge 7 litre a special body which made the Trossi Mercedes Unique.

While the Mercedes series production cars were painted in white in the 30’s, Count Trossi, however, let his SSK shine in Black.

Count Trossi owned the Black Prince until his death in 1949.

Today, Ralph Lauren, a worldwide famous men’s outfitter, has the Mercedes to call his own.
