Product information "Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Mille Miglia #658 Fangio"

The annual endurance race of the Mille Miglia attracted a very impressive group of competitors in 1955. Mercedes-Benz had big plans up its sleeve, so it sent over a fleet of four racing cars, all of the type 300 SLR, which was to make its debut here.

With the allotted starting number 658, the fi rst car of the Mercedes team started off at 6:58 am (starting number = starting time), and it was piloted by J.M. Fangio without a co-pilot. With starting number 701, Karl Kling took off on the next 300 SLR at 7:01 am, followed by Hans other three cars of the Mercedes-Benz SLR team. Each item is a worldwide limited edition of 2,000 pieces only. J.M. Fangio fi nished 2nd in the race. Karl Kling was caught in an accident and had to retire (item number M-118). Likewise, Hans Herrmann was unable to fi nish the race due to a fuel spill from the loosened fuel fi ller cap that forestalled any efforts to carry on. Herrmann and his co-pilot Hermann Eger at 7:04 am with starting number 704. Finally the young daredevil Stirling Moss and his co-pilot Denis Jenkinson left the start line with starting number 722 at 7:22 am.

The outcome of this race became world-famous and went down in racing history subsequently. Stirling Moss turned out to be the triumphant winner. CMC recreated his 300 SLR some time ago. CMC’s commemoration of the 1955 Mille Miglia race is now completed with the release of new miniatures for the other three cars of the Mercedes-Benz SLR team. Each item is a worldwide limited edition of 2,000 pieces only.
