This coupé version of the racing car 300 SLR had been developed by Daimler-Benz for the 1956 racing season. It was constructed under the supervision of the head of the MB racing car division Rudolf Uhlenhaut. This is recalled today by the nickname "Uhlenhaut Coupé". However, it never came to racing, because Mercedes Benz left motor racing in 1955 after the end of the season. The MB 300 SLR is one of the most spectacular and expensive Supercars that were ever built and was way ahead of its time.
