MERCDES-BENZ SSK

Sports tourer, 2-seater roadster, custom roadsters.

Super Sports Kurz (short), the ultimate in macho, blood and thunder vintage sports cars. Well over 200bhp so you're talking about 100mph+, and all the machinery is installed in 116ins wheelbase frame. Factory roadster, with cycle wings, Spartan body and twin spares mounted on tank, just oozes aggression. Some custom bodies by, among others, Corsica and Murphy, very attractive. Carraciola's third place in the first Monaco GP (1929) behind the Bugattis heroic in view of the lack of brakes. If you want one, you'll need to be a millionaire...
