Chassis: 000 13/55
The second to last W196 built, chassis 000 13 was called into service three times during the 1955 season, at each occasion sporting the shortest wheelbase available. On his way to his second world championship, Juan Manuel Fangio drove the not so unlucky '13' to second place finishes at Monaco and Aintree, while scoring a victory in the Dutch Grand Prix. It is seen here during the 2009 Goodwood Revival where it was one of the stars of Sir Stirling Moss' 80th birthday celebrations.
