The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (W196S) was an iconic 2-seat sports racer that took sportscar racing by storm in 1955, winning that year's World Sportscar Championship before a catastrophic crash and fire at Le Mans ended its domination prematurely.
Designated "SL-R" (for Sport Leicht-Rennen, eng: Sport Light-Racing, later condensed to "SLR"), the 3-liter thoroughbred was derived from the company's Mercedes-Benz W196 Formula One racer. It shared most of its drivetrain and chassis, with the 196's fuel-injected 2,496.87 cc straight 8 bored and stroked to 2,981.70 cc and boosted to 310 bhp (230 kW).
The W196s monoposto driving position was modified to standard two-abreast seating, headlights were added, and a few other changes made to adapt a strictly track competitor to a 24-hour road/track sports racer.
Two of the nine 300 SLR rolling chassis produced were converted into 300 SLR/300 SL hybrids. Effectively road legal racers, they had coupé styling, gull-wing doors, and a footprint midway between the two models.

  • Well packed, nice item in 1st rate order. Let down by DPD, the carrier, who dumped the item at a central location in France with no attempt at house delivery and then failed to inform me of situation.
