The brilliant blue paintwork, soft streamlined curves, and top speed of 106 mph generated just as much fascination for the Mercedes-Benz racing car transporter as the W 196 and 300SLR sports cars that rode piggyback on the loading bed. This special set features the “Blue Wonder” as well as the “Dirty Hero” rendition of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR emblazoned with starting #701 that was piloted by Karl Kling. The fume-stained, mud splashed Silver Arrow parades its soiled body on the back of the transporter as a testament to its valiant effort in the world-famous Mercedes-Benz victory on May 1st, 1955.

The truck and monoposto pair of the CMC Mercedes-Benz Blue Wonder + Dirty Hero 300 SLR are symbolic of the journey home from an unforgettable racing scene. Limited edition of 1,000 units.
