Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut coupe"

Daimler-Benz developed this hardtop version of the 300 SLR racing car for the 1956 season. It was never used in racing, however, because the company ceased its motorsport activities at the end of the 1955 season. Instead, the 300 SLR coupe served the head of the Test Department, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, as a company car. The nickname "Uhlenhaut coupe" is a reminder of this. Cylinders: 8 Displacement: 182 cu in Output: 302 hp (222 kW) at engine speed: 7500/min Top speed: 180 mph Production period: 1955 Units produced: 2
