Product Description

CMC 1:18 1955 Mercedez-Benz 300 SLR M-066 #722, signed Stirling Moss plaque and display case.

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 is supplied with a high quality leather based display case and a signed Stirling Moss plaque, making this a rare package and a fabulous present.
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.
