BRUMM MERCEDES BENZ 300 SLR (TARGA FLORIO CAR)


Brumm no. R189 is Fangio's car, number 112, from the 1955 Targa Florio, while R190 is the 300SLR which with Stirling Moss, with navigator Dennis Jenkinson, scored his famous victory in the Mille Miglia, one of only two occassions that a non-Italian car won the 1,000 mile road race. This model has a double fairing for driver and navigator. Brumm later introduced a limited edition model of the 1955 Targa Florio-winning machine of Collins and Moss (no.S034). All the Mercedes Benz models are silver in colour. Incidentally, Brumm has also produced the coupe version of the Mercedes 300SLR (no. R187) which was prepared for the 1955 Carrera Panamerican, but the race was cancelled and the car never raced. Shop here
