Product Description

CMC 1:18 1955 Mercedez-Benz 300 SLR M-066 #722

In 1955, Mercedes-Benz introduced its 300 SLR for the first time at the Mille Miglia. Among its toughest competitors were Ferrari, Maserati, and Aston Martin. Every minute, a competing car received its starting signal. Since 1949, the starting order had been decided by lot, so that each starting number was a record of the starting time. The young, but well-accomplished British race driver Stirling Moss, together with his co-pilot Denis Jenkinson (“Jenks”), received the starting number 722. That indicated that their exact starting time was 7:22 AM. They won in record time, a record that still stands to this day.
Described by Sir Stirling Moss recently as “The greatest sports car ever made”.

The model comes with it’s original packaging box. This model is now retired by CMC, this is a pre-owned model in as new condition. CMC model number M-066.
