1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe

Maximum speed reached 300 km/h. Regarded as the world's fastest car in the 1950s. Only 2 of these hard top road-legal coupes were built. Mercedes Benz withdrew from racing in 1955 before these two prototypes had their chances to compete. Both cars are still owned by the Mercedes Benz company.

The 300SLR along side with the W196, another racing model built on the same chassis.
