1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Mille Miglia #704, Mille Miglia Limited Signature Edition Signed by Hans Herrmann
At 7:04 on the morning of May 1, 1955, the 300 SLR with starting number 704 (starting number = starting time) left the launch pad in Brescia, with Hans Herrmann and his co-pilot Hermann Eger behind the wheel to attempt the 22nd championship of the 1,600 km-long Mille Miglia.
Having covered more than a half of the race, they were forced to retire because the fuel filler cap had come loose, causing a dangerous fuel spill all over the pilots. It was a hard decision, as Herrmann was holding a promising lead at the time. CMC has recreated the original Hans Herrmann’s car down to the smallest detail in a limited signature edition.
This signature edition is limited to only 400 pieces worldwide and is available now.
