About this car

The Mercedes SLR300 is a famous 2 seater which was build in the early '50's. The car has a history of both highs and lows.

On May 1st 1955 Stirling Moss and his co-driver, the journalist Denis Jenkinson completed what has gone into history as one of the finest driver ever. Together they won the the daunting Mille Miglia rally in a record breaking time of 10 hours, seven minutes and 48 seconds; an average of nearly 98 mph and all this on public roads. This record stands to this day and was the result of Moss’ fantastic driving, Jenkinson’s pioneering use of pace-notes and of course their exquisite steed; the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR.
