1937 MercedesBenz W125 Images Specifications and Information

With the rapid development of technology, Grand Prix racing was subject to constant changes in the 1920s and early 1930s and sport’s governing body (AIACR) struggled to create a definitive set of regulations that would work with the various engine configurations raced at the time. In 1932 they came up with a Grand Prix formula with a maximum weight of 750 kg (sans fluids, wheels and tires) for 1934, 1935 and 1936. The Association Internationale des Automobiles Clubs Reconnus figured this maximum would sufficiently reign in and level performance. They were proven very wrong as Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz produced some of the fastest and dangerous Grand Prix racers. The designers reserved ...

8W When? Gunnar Nilsson Trophy

Related articles Gunnar Nilsson Memorial Trophy (3 June 1979) The fan car raced twice! About a year after it was outlawed from Grand Prix racing it made a final competitive outing at the Gunnar Nilsson Trophy, a fundraiser held at Donington Park with the proceeds going to the Gunnar Nilsson Cancer Foundation. Also, this was the true finale to James Hunt’s impressive Grand Prix career, James holding back the announcement of his retirement until after the event. As a matter of fact, the 1976 World Champion didn’t really want to do the thing at all but he’d been one of the instigators of the Gunnar Nilsson Fund and thus felt a moral obligation. In MotorSport ‘s July 1979 ...

At the world’s greatest tracks, the W125 would prove dominant, whether it be the uniquely banked AVUS or the romantic locales of Tripoli and Monaco. At SPA, the W125 would set a torrid pace, ripping through the old track at 193 mph. And those weren’t even accomplished by their best driver. In 1937, that driver was Rudolph Caracciola and he piloted the W125 in victories in several Grand Prix including the one that CMC has modeled here, the car that ...

MercedesBenz History and Heritage

Mercedes-Benz Daimler-Benz AG was an amalgamation of two fii:ms that created the motor car and the industry that eventually grew up around it. Gottlieb Daimler was born in 1834 and in 1872 he became technical director of the Deutz gas engine factory, where the chief designer under him was Wilhelm Maybach. The two were a very effective team. Daimler, systematic, thorough, and inventive, was the creative man; Maybach, with his genius in putting an idea into practice, was the interpreter, though not to be denied his own inventive ability. The starting point of these two men on the road to modem petrol engines and cars was the Otto four-… gas engine of 1876, which Deutz built commercially; ...
