Each wing of the hood is individually secured with a real leather strap. Amazingly realistic and perfectly crafted wheels with stainless-steel spokes and nipples mounted on an alloy rim. In addition to being a one-off vehicle with a renowned past, the Trossi Roadster has a very special meaning for CMC. It goes back to the onset of the CMC company in 1995, when Shuxiao Jia and Herbert Nickerl, the two company co-founders, introduced the first CMC-made model car by replicating none other than the Trossi Roadster in 1:24 scale. Immediately after its release, the CMC miniature was voted “Model of the Year” by a professional magazine. While the vehicle is considered to be one of the most valuable Mercedes-Benz classics in the world, the CMC replica was held to do a fascinating justice to the car. Count Carlo Felice Trossi came from the Gaglianico noble family in Biella of northern Italy and was born in 1908. As a motor sportsman and racing driver, he was elected Vice President of Scuderia Ferrari 1931. Gifted at the driving wheel, he finished second in the 1932 Mille Miglia. SSK Chassis 36038 was initially delivered to Japan devoid of a body in 1930, and from there – still without a body – it was shipped to Rome, where it got a buyer and a coach body. Next to signor Antonio Maino, Count Trossi became the second owner of the car in June 1933. He commissioned Willi White, an English coach builder with the implementation of a new body design that he had sketched on a piece of paper. It was an extremely aerodynamic design and surprisingly in accord with the contemporary trend.
