1954 Mercedes Benz “Blue Wonder” Race Transporter and Mercedes W196 R Formula 1 Car

The W 196 R was the first formula racing car built by Daimler-Benz after the war. Following their pre-war success, no one doubted that Daimler-Benz would return to formula racing. The first entry of the new W 196 R in the French Grand Prix at Reims ended with great success: Drivers Juan Manuel Fangio and Karl Kling would score a double victory.
