The Mercedes-Benz supercharged sports cars of the types S/SS/SSK/SSKL were used at all kinds of world-famous racing events between 1927 and 1933, such as Grand Prix races, long-distance or endurance races, and mountain climb competitions. They might be affectionately called “invincible monsters”.
The abbreviation system S/SS/SSK/SSKL (Super-Sport-Short-Light, a coinage added after 1931) was adopted by Mercedes-Benz to designate the individual developmental stages of its sports cars, each equipped with a robust 7.1 liter inline six-cylinder supercharged engine. A long list of famous pilots is closely associated with these powerful machines, and among them are Rudolf Caracciola, Manfred v. Chr. Bran-chitsch, Hans Stuck, Carlos Zatuszek and Bernd Rosemeyer.

The SSK/SSKL types, in particular, constituted a highlight of the legendary S-series that has left a continuing impact on the Mercedes-Benz marque. One may say, some cars belong to today as much as they did to yesterday, and they are virtually timeless. We would like to promote such a car, an SSK in a Clear Finish version including a showcase at this year’s International Toy Fair.
