Description

In 1952, Mercedes-Benz staged a comeback to motor sports racing with the newly-developed Type 300SL (W194). Featuring an unusual entry through a gull-wing door that opens from the lower edge of the side window and swivels upward around the centerpiece of the roof top, this streamlined sports car immediately cast a spell on the racing enthusiasts. After a successful debut at the Mille Miglia, the 300SL moved on to the renewed competition of sports car racing at the Grand Prix of Bern on May 18th, 1952. The three officially registered 300SL’s were decked out in uncommonly colorful finishes, in-cluding dark red (Rudolf Caracciola, #16), green (Karl Kling, #18), and blue (Hermann Lang, #20), not to mention the silver-colored finish of the replacement car with Fritz Riess (#22) at its wheel. The team was ready to engage the rivals from Ferrari, Lancia, Aston Martin and Jaguar. At the end of the race, Mercedes-Benz celebrated a spectacular triple-victory, with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places clinched by Karl Kling, Hermann Lang and Fritz Rieß respectively. The joy of victory, however, was tempered because a tragic accident had happened to Rudolf Caracciola when he veered off the track on a stalled front brake and crashed into a tree in Round 13. He was taken to hospital with a broken femur and other injuries. His recovery was long, and the bone fracture plus a knee surgery caused lasting impairment to his right leg, which put an end to Caracciola’s racing career. Dimensions approximately L-10.5, W-4.5, H-3.5 inches. Technical data of the original vehicle: 6-cylinder in-line-engine, overhead camshaft, Fuel supply: injection pump, Transmission: 4-speed synchromeshed. Maximum output: 177 hp at 5,400 rpm Displacement: 3,100 ccm Top speed: 257 km/h Wheel base: 2,400 mm Track front: 1,330 mm Track rear: 1,445 mm
