Chassis 000 05 was one of the eight 300 SLs used by the factory Mercedes-Benz team during the 1952 season. It was raced to fourth by veteran racer Rudolf Caracciola in the Mille Miglia and to a second in the Carrera Panamericana by Hermann Lang. Retained by Mercedes-Benz, the rare racer has been meticulously restored to its spectacular Carrera Panamericana livery. Regularly shown and demonstrated, chassis 05 is seen here in action during the 2011 and 2012 editions of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
