Nothing less than the car with which the great Juan Manuel Fangio won his third Formula 1 world title, achieving 4 victories in 7 Grand Prix. Now it is possible to assemble this historic champion in great detail, with a kit that contains no less than 451 parts, of which 114 are metal, all of them pre-painted and ready to be assembled. Once built, the front hood can be raised, revealing its impressive direct injection inline 8-cylinder engine, an engineering prodigy for its time. In addition, the kit has a remote control with which to play the sound of the engine. They are limited units, so don't miss out!

For descriptive purposes, images of the kit with number #12 are shown, but this reference only allows making the version with number #8.

The Mercedes-Benz W196 R was designed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Fritz Nallinger. Because of its streamlined shape, it was able to reach high speeds. The W196 R was built fourteen times, including the prototype. From the European Grand Prix on the Nürburgring, a version with free-standing wheels was switched to, which is also known as a monoposto. On a technical level, the vehicle was manufactured with the highest quality at the time and had, for example, a tubular space frame, a torsion bar suspension, an articulated swing axle and turbo-cooled duplex drum brakes. The 290 hp vehicles were driven by Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss. In the twelve Grand Prix races, the two were able to achieve nine wins from twelve Grand Prix races.
