Description

Details

This coupé version of the 300 SLR racing car was developed by Daimler-Benz for the 1956 season. It was designed under the supervision of the then head of the MB racing car department, Rudolf Uhlenhaut. The nickname "Uhlenhaut Coupé" is a reminder of this today. However, it was never used in racing because Mercedes Benz withdrew from motorsport after the end of the season in 1955. The MB 300 SLR is one of the most spectacular and expensive super sports cars ever built way ahead of its time even then.
