The Silent Hero

They’re doing it right” is what we would have said about Mercedes-Benz in the 1930’s. Time and again they were dominating on the circuit and taking one victory after another. These sleek yet muscular and supremely engineered Silver Arrows embodied the pinnacle of race car design prior to World War II. But behind these magnificent machines sat the less praised, yet equally significant Mercedes-Benz transporter, the LO 2750.

If the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows were the triumph on the race tracks, the Mercedes-Benz transporters symbolized their glory. These blue trucks with the lettering “Mercedes-Benz Rennabteilung (Racing Department)” were an integral supply chain component and traversed the roads of Europe safely transporting the racers from factory to Grand Prix starting lines. Like a mobile billboard, these trucks reinforced the Mercedes-Benz image of efficiency, reliability and commitment to racing throughout all of Europe. One can imagine the enthusiastic welcome these trucks received as they returned home, driving through German towns and villages, tarpaulin unfurled and the monopostos displayed in all their post race glory.
