Mercedes-Benz 300SLR – Between peerless Success and Tragedy

Mercedes-Benz 300SLR – Between peerless Success and Tragedy

It was the year 1955, as Mercedes-Benz unveiled an open 2 seater made to dominate the entire motorsport until it was withdrawn by the concern as sign of respect in consequence of what remains the highest-fatality accident in the history of motorsport, the 1955 24 hours of Le Mans tragedy. Talk is obviously of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, which now receives tribute with the TAG Heuer 300 SLR Caliber 1887 Chronograph. This sporty yet elegant chrono comes in a limited run of 3.000 units, and features a 41mm stainless steel case that embodies the Swiss automatic 1887 caliber, a movement that’s able to start in under two-thousandths of a second – a subtle wrist rocket honoring a true legend.
