Other Editions of This Title:
With unique and rarely seen images, Karl Ludvigsen presents the dramatic story of these racers with their tubular space frames, inboard brakes and fuel-injected desmodromic-valved, eight-cylinder engines.
Covers the secret tests at Hockenheim, the never-raced coupe version of the 300SLR and the model prepared for 1956 - a season that these cars never experienced.
