LEGRAND Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut Coupé" 1/8 scale metal kit
This coupé version of the 300 SLR racing car was developed by Daimler-Benz for the 1956 season, and only two 300 SLR Coupes were constructed. It was designed under the supervision of the then head of the MB racing car department, Rudolf Uhlenhaut and the nickname "Uhlenhaut Coupé" is a reminder of this today. It was never used in racing because Mercedes Benz withdrew from motorsport after the end of the season in 1955. The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR is still one of the most spectacular and expensive super sports cars ever built, and way ahead of its time.
8 Cylinders | Displacement 2982 liters | Output 302 hp @ 7500 rpm | Top speed 290 km/h (180 mph) | Production period: 1955
