Mercedes 300 SLR (W196S) 1955, Mille Miglia. This car was driven by Juan Manuel Fangio (no.658) and finished 2nd in the 1955 Mille Miglia, behind Stirling Moss. Mercedes built the beautiful 300 SLR (W196S) to tackle the 1955 sportscar championship. It enjoyed much success in road and circuit racing and famously won the 1955 Mille Miglia road race driven by Sir Sirling Moss, partnered by motoring journalist Denis Jenkinson. Over the 1000 mile race they averaged a staggering 97.96 mph. Denis "Jenks" Jenkinson used a clever system of pre made route notes on a scrolling paper to call out the road ahead and were a forerunner of the "pacenote" system that is used on modern stage rallies.
