This Exact 1952 Mercedes-Benz W194 Won Lemans



Just parked up on the lawn in front of the Mercedes stand!  Read into the details of W194 number 7 and you quickly learn this exact car won LeMans.

Impressive!   Of course, this tanker aero design hides a Super Light alloy spaceframe with giant structural sills.  Escape was via the future-icon gullwing doors.

This car went on to race at the Nurburgring and as a timer in the Carrera Panamericana.
