Featured is the most extreme development of the original Raceabout, fitted with a massive 7.4 litre version of the T-Head engine and a more substantial body. They were built specifically to take on the mostly European Grand Prix machines and with success as Eddie Pullen won the 1914 American Grand Prix in Santa Monica, making Mercer the first American manufacturer to do so. The pictured example is one of just two surviving examples of the Type 45 Raceabout and is today part of a very impressive collection of brass era racing cars. It is pictured above during the 2007 Monterey Historic Races.
