1939 Mercedes Benz W154 Pit Exit
Vintage Fest 2009 at Limerock Park. Limerock,CT
The W154 may be the most significant pre war factory race effort. It incorporated many innovations including fuel injection and hydraulically adjustable suspension. This particular chassis No.15 was one of the last produced and was raced by legends Hermann Lang, Manfred von Brauschitz and Rudolf Caracciola
After several years of meticulous restoration efforts by The Collier Collection it was brought out and run at the Limerock Vintage Festival on Labor day 2009. This was its first outing at a race track in 70 years, almost to the day.
