Juan Manuel Fangio x Mercedes 300SL : The Myth

‘You think you’re Fangio?’ You have to have crushed all forms of competition for many years to write your name in the collective memory as Fangio did. More than a driver, the name of the Argentinean icon is forever associated with the idea of taking all the risks. A 5-time Formula 1 champion with 4 different teams, winning almost every other Grand Prize during his career… When Fangio put his little leather helmet on to drive his civilian car, it was on! Dating from 1958, a gift from the brand after his impressive domination of Mercedes Benz during the 1954 and 1955 seasons, this prodigious 300SL roadster offered for sale was one of his favorites. What makes this car so special is that it is in its original condition. Yes, it was in this bucket and behind this wheel that Fangio gave this civilian version a run for its money, with the color scheme inspired by the Argentine flag.
