1/18 1955 Mercedes 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe – Chassis 00007/55
This is a handbuilt metal 9.5″/24 cm long replica made from over 1800 parts. The hefty model features all opening surfaces, including Gullwing doors, and a blue leather interior with plaid cloth seats.
When Rudolf Uhlenhaut, the architect of the 300 SLR racer, was at the 1955 Mille Miglia to watch Mercedes’ success, he was also mulling over the idea of fitting the 300 SLR racer with a closed top for endurance events in the future. His dream came to fruition in the shape of a competition coupé with the performance that no other road-going sports car could match.
In May of 2022 the real car sold for a staggering US$143m – making it the world’s most expensive car!
