In less than 24 hours the automotive world will be enriched with another amazing annual edition of the world most popular event -- the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Beside the hill climb races, ultimate driving and astonishing performances, this year the Goodwood Festival will organize a special gathering in order to pay an exclusive tribute to the model that left a significant mark in the automotive history – the Mercedes Benz 300 SLR! Wondering what`s the reason?
There have passed no more no less but 6 decades after the legendary Mille Miglia victory of the model, where behind the wheel was the one and only Stirling Moss. Having in mind that there are only 8 existing examples of the Mercedes Benz 300 SLR, that fact says enough about the truly extraordinary experience that the team behind Goodwood has prepared for us, this year. The ones being displayed are with the chassis numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 10, whereas number 4 is the lucky one for Mr. Moss! During the weekend he will be reunited with this model that brought him victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia!
