Mercedes-Benz W154 1938

1:18 Scale Replica by CMC
Before the dawn of the 1938 Grand Prix season, new “FORMULAS” were introduced to standardize racing classes. The rule changes were geared towards changing engine size and displacement to 3 liters. These changes would force car manufacturers to scramble to design new cars for the upcoming racing season. These changes directly lead to the creation of the Mercedes-Benz W154. The changes in formulas for the Grand Prix season would change racing for years to come.

The Mercedes-Benz W154 was introduced with a brand new V12 engine that produced a staggering 485 hp. The 5-speed transmission was mounted directly on the Dion rear axle. Little did anyone know that the Mercedes-Benz W154 would go on to dominate the 1938 and 1939 Grand Prix season.

With a fleet of the Mercedes-Benz W154 Caracciola, Lang, von Brauchitsch and Seaman of the Daimler-Benz team began piling up victories, one after the other.

In 1938 Caracciola drove the Mercedes-Benz W154 to a European Champion. At the French Grand Prix on the 3rd of July, 1938, the Mercedes-Benz W154 gained a rare a triple victory: von Brauchitsch came in first, Caracciola second and Hermann Lang third. In 1939 Hermann Lang became European Champion with the now iconic Mercedes-Benz W 154.

***Many items ships double-boxed!!***

All sixth scale figures and many more items come double-boxed automatically when purchased through Secret Compass! Most other dealers will slap a label right on the cardboard shipper and ship that way with no protection. Secret Compass recognizes the value in your collectible figure and we always double-box the cardboard shipper, which comes fresh out of a master case so it shows no sign of shipping before it ships to you.
