Chassis 000 08 was the final W196 built in 1954 and did not debut until the final race of the year. At this, the Spanish Grand Prix, Juan Manuel Fangio drove the long wheelbase car to a second place finish. In the following season, Karl Kling placed it second in the Buenos Aires Grand Prix and Fangio added the only victory to its tally at Spa a few months later. Retained by Mercedes-Benz, this W196 is regularly shown and demonstrated at events around the world. It is seen here at several editions of the Goodwood Festival of Speed with the likes of Sir Stirling Moss, Mika Hakkinen and Jochen Mass behind the wheel.
