Chassis 07 was built new for the all important 24 Hours of Le Mans. A very consistent drive brought Hermann Lang and Fritz Riess a victory in the legendary endurance race after all the competition had failed. It was subsequently driven to victory at a race on the Nürburgring by Lang. Its final appearance came at the Carrera Panamericana where a sister car won. Fully restored, it is today owned by a prominent American collector. He is a true enthusiast and campaigns his prized machine at various events. The Le Mans winning 300 SL is seen here at the 2005 Monterey Historics, the 2006 Monaco Historic Grand Prix and the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
