'Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR 722 – Stirling Moss' Child's car Fußnoten Quoted in 'Mercedes' by Rainer Schlegelmilch and Hartmut Lehbrink, factory driver Peter Collins mockingly said of the 300 SLR: "Although Stirling (Moss) and I honestly tried to wreck the car by leaping over chasms, charging through walls and bumping into other cars, it somehow survived." Collins was referring to his and Moss's epic winning drive in the 1955 Targa Florio, where their factory-entered 300 SLR ran like a watch despite the enthusiastic driving of the two Englishmen. Indeed, the 300 SLR's reliability in the heat of competition was legendary. Handmade in the UK, this child's car is modelled after the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR driven by racing legends Moss and Collins in the 1955 Mille Miglia. It incorporates a steel chassis and features a glass-reinforced plastic body, hand-stitched leather interior, four-spoke aluminium steering wheel, and 12" steel wheels shod with pneumatic tyres. The car is powered by a 43cc two-stroke engine capable of propelling it at speeds of up to 24km/h, while other noteworthy features include a centrifugal clutch, opening bonnet and boot, and working headlights. A wonderful opportunity to own a child-sized replica of this most famous Mercedes-Benz sports-racer.
