The 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196—being billed as the most important historic Grand Prix race car ever brought to auction, which is expected to bring in up to $40 million at Bonhams’ Goodwood sale in July—recently put in an appearance at the UK’s Silverstone racetrack.
Two-time British Grand Prix winner and ex-Mercedes-Benz driver Sir Stirling Moss presided over the classic car, while current MB driver Lewis Hamilton was behind the wheel of the latest Mercedes AMG Grand Prix racer.
The W196, aka the famed “Silver Arrow,” is the same model raced by Moss when he won the British Grand Prix in 1955, his first Forumla 1 title ever.
Look sharp, Lewis…
