The Blue Wonder Mercedes_Benz Racing Car Transporter,1954
In 1954 a special and uniquely hand built vehicle appeared from the workshops of Daimer-Benz: the Mercedes-Benz racing car transporter. With its deep blue coloured Daimler-Benz paintwork, the soft curves of the chassis and a max. speed of 170 km/h it caused just as much wonderment as the racing cars W 196 and 300 SLR on the loading bed.
After Daimler-Benz withdrew from Formula 1 racing at the end of 1955 this vehicle disappeared from the public view. Sadly the original was scrapped in 1967.
At the beginning of the 1990’s Daimler-Benz recalled this souvenir and under the direction of the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center a replica of the original was again constructed, bringing the solitaire “back to life”.
On the occasion of the 100 year company anniversary parade for the brand Mercedes-Benz in 2001 the racing car transporter was presented to an exited public at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood in South England.
