When Mercedes-Benz returned to motor racing in the 1950s it did so with an aggressive attack across the board. The magnificent 300SLR took Stirling Moss to a record-shattering victory in the Mille Miglia and (with Peter Collins) in the grueling Targa Florio. Other track victories took Mercedes-Benz to the World Manufacturers Championship that year. Tragedy struck as well: a 300SLR went into the crowd at Le Mans, resulting in 82 deaths and many injuries. With unique and rarely seen images, Karl Ludvigsen presents the dramatic story of these racers with their tubular space frames, inboard brakes and fuel-injected desmodromic-valved, eight-cylinder engines. Covers the secret tests at Hockenheim, the never-raced coupe version of the 300SLR and the model prepared for 1956 - a season that these cars never experienced.

  • Hamrl
Wow. What a fantastic collection of photos and documentation by Ludvigsen. Starts with the prototype design of the 300SLR and moves to a couple of blueprints of the chassis and general layout. Very informative with enough detail to enjoy the beauty and ingenuity of the Mercedes Benz engineers. Moves onto some impressive photos of the chassis, and technical points of the 300SLR, including the amazing straight 8 engine, and finishes with period action photos (some taken by Rudy Mailander) of the car being raced by Moss/Kling/Fangio and other drivers including the unfortunate Levegh car.
Photos are in black and white. Fans of the Uhlenhaut 300SLR coupe will not be disappointed, as it is covered in minor detail too.
A nice compliment to this is the "Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix W196" book written/published by the same author/group.
