The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (W196S) was a 2-seat sports racer that took part in the 1955 World Sportscar Championship before a catastrophic crash and fire at Le Mans later that year ended its domination prematurely. Watch the video form Supercar Blondie for more info:

The 300 SLR was front mid-engined, with its long longitudinally-mounted engine placed just behind the front axles instead of over them to better balance front/rear weight distribution. A brazed steel tube spaceframe chassis carried ultra-light Elektron magnesium-alloy bodywork (having a specific gravity of 1.8, less than a quarter of iron’s 7.8), which contributed substantially to keeping dry weight to a remarkably low 880 kg.


Designated “SL-R”, the 3-litre engine was derived from the company’s Mercedes-Benz W196 Formula One racer. It shared most of its drivetrain and chassis with the 196’s fuel-injected 2,496.87 cc straight 8 bored and stroked to 2,981.70 cc and boosted to 310 bhp (230 kW).wikipedia
