CMC M-128B Mercedes-Benz W196R, Streamliner, 1954 Kling #20 Scale 1:18
Mercedes took its time for the re-entry of Grand Prix racing to guarantee the best possible results. The elegant streamlined bodies of the Mercedes racers are an absolute novelty and completely different compared to the familiar and traditional racing car design. The competitors are shocked and speechless. But for the 300,000 spectators at the race track, this appearance is a true sensation.
Mercedes participates with three cars of the type W196R. The pilots are Juan Manuel Fangio, Karl Kling and the young Hans Herrmann. The premier race at the Grand Prix of France July 4, 1954 is chosen very well. The fast track with the long straights is just made for this streamlined car.
Fangio (starting number 18) and Kling (starting number 20) are starting in the front row beside Ascari in his Maserati 250F. After Ascari`s had to retire the race already in lap 1, the two Ferrari from Gonzalez and Hawthorn are right behind the leading Mercedes from Fangio and Kling. Hans Herrmann with starting number 22 starts the race from the 3rd row at position 5. After seven laps he`s passing Hawthorn and in the 11th even Gonzalez. Now all three W196R are leading the race. But unfortunately, in lap 17 Hans Herrmann had to stop the car because of an engine failure.
At the end of the race, a dramatic duel between Fangio and Kling takes place. Fangio is able to decide the race paper-thin to his favour. He`s just approx. 1 meter ahead of Kling as he is passing the finish line.
So after 15 years of absence, the Mercedes-Benz racing team made a glorious comeback by achieving a sensational double victory.
