Mercedes SLR 300: Winner of the 1955 Mille Miglia

May 1, 1955 the Mille Miglia: Victory for number 722!

The Mercedes team arrived in Brescia for the 1955 Mille Miglia with the aim of sealing an elusive victory. With Karl Kling at the wheel, the 300 SL had already been given a glimpse of victory on its way to a second-place finish three years earlier, but this time the 300 SLR went one better. The W 196 S lined up for the start of the race on May 1, 1955 bristling with endeavor in its first competitive outing. The legendary Mille Miglia took the drivers from Brescia on a high-speed 1597-kilometer loop via Padua, Ferrara and Pescara to Rome, and back through Florence, over the Futa and Raticosa passes to Bologna and Piacenza and over the finish line in Brescia.
