The original Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR was designed by Rudolph Uhlenhaut in 1955 and was based on W196 Formula one car of the same year. The SLR found huge success most notably finishing 1 st and 2 nd in the 1955 Mille Miglia. Sir Stirling Moss, accompanied by Denis Jenkinson, won the race in world famous car number 722. The two drivers completed the 1,000 miles in just 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds, averaging 97.9 mph. Of the 9 original cars 6 still remain with Mercedes-Benz and motoring museums. Car number 722 is by far the most famous of the SLR’s and is now believed to be perhaps the most valuable car in existence at a rumoured £50,000,000.
The 300 SLR recreation offered here at Hofmann’s was completed in 2010 having taken in excess of 2,000 man hours to produce. This all-aluminium homage to 722 offers a unique opportunity to own one of the rarest and most influential motorcars in racing history.
