W196

Designed for Victory

Mercedes-Benz introduced the innovative Mercedes W196 for its return to Grand Prix racing in 1954. It featured a fuel-injected straight-eight engine, a five-speed transmission, a tubular space frame and a stunning streamlined body that was developed in a wind tunnel. It was regarded as the most advanced race car of its day. Drivers Juan-Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss won 9 of 12 races with the W196 in 1954 and 1955 before Mercedes-Benz withdrew from racing.
