about this car

Based on the SLR chassis, in 1955 Mercedes-Benz built two coupé versions, intended for long-distance races, to allow drivers a more comfortable race. It was the fastest road-legal enclosed car at the time. Just two were made and never left Mercedes hands. Today, they are a show-stopper at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

As the car was intended to compete in the Carrera Panamericana, which was canceled in 1955 and Daimler-Benz announced to retire from motor sport in the autumn of the same year, the SLR Coupé never actually participated in any race.

However, the constructor of the sports car, Ralf Uhlenhaut, undertook several long-distance trips across Europe, using a muffler in order to reduce the noise produced by the car to an acceptable level. This version was tested in 1956 by Swiss journalists over a distance of 3.500 kilometers and was praised for its performance, efficiency, driving experience, versatility and reliability.
