Chassis: 00008/55
Chassis 0008/55 was the second of two 300 SLR Coupes completed in the Summer of 1955. It was supposedly built to compete in that year's edition of the grueling Carrera Panamericana road race through Mexico. After the Le Mans tragedy, the race was cancelled, never to be run again. As a result chassis 0008/55 was not used in an official capacity. In recent years, it has been displayed at numerous events. For 2010 the car was brought back to full running order. During that year's Festival of Speed, it was driven up the hill by the likes of Sir Jackie Stewart and Mika Hakkinen.
