In 1955, Mercedes-Benz won The Sports Car World Championship with the racing car 300 SLR (W 196 S). In addition to the titles achieved that same year in The Formula 1 World Championship and The European Touring Car Championship, this success is proof of the unprecedented dominance of a single manufacturer on the stage of international automobile racing. Stirling Moss and Juan Manuel Fangio, the most successful drivers of their era, had impressive victories in the 300 SLR at the most demanding road races in the world, triumphs that continue to afford this unparalleled racing car lasting fame to this day.

This first volume of the Milestones of Motor Sports limited edition series provides exhaustive and authentic documentation of the technical development of the W 196 S. All the races, as well as the biography of each individual vehicle, are presented with the aid of exclusive images and illustrations.
