1908 Mercedes Simplex 6 litre Rennwagen

Simplex Engine number: 2770

This car is a reconstruction of the mythical racing car Mercedes N°35 that wan the Grand Prix de Dieppe in 1908 in the hands of Christian Lauthenschlager.

The three racing cars Mercedes Grand Prix 1908 (N°35, N°19, N°2) that were produced have been destroyed. No genuine original Grand Prix model remains today.

Rebuilding this beautiful car took thousands of hours of work and considerable investment in order to achieve the most accurate reconstruction of the original model.  The engine which is a 6 liter Mercedes Simplex motor.

A massive amount of work was accomplished to bring it to the standard we see today: mechanical overhaul, gear box/output shaft, bearings, spring leaves, steering bar, all accessories and pressure gauges, ignition with period magneto, woodwork, and the wood wheels, particularly well made by the best wheelwright in France.

This car is especially pleasant to drive because of a more remarkably light & flexible steering than usually found in cars before 1914, and its engine which is powerful & torque laden at low speeds.

The car has a typical racing car look of those glorious times before 1914.

Transmission by dual chains.
6 l engine rebuilt to as new with oil pump.
12 volt battery starter for easy starting.
4 speed gearbox and reverse gear.
Almost new tires.
