about this car

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Roadster made motor sport history in 1955, when it broke the record at the Mille Miglia road race. The car entered 6 races in that year, winning 5. The record set at the Italian race, average speed of 97.7 mph, still stands. It was developed, using the insights gained with the 300 SL and with the Formula One M 196 R car.

At the Le Mans race, the 300 SLR Roadster was involved in a fatal accident, crashing into the crowd as pushed off the track by another car. 83 people were killed and the dramatic event contributed to the decision taken by Daimler-Benz in 1955 to retire from motor sport.
