Motorsport-Holdall Mercedes No 18
Why the number 18
Mercedes-Benz surprised the whole racing scene, one more time, with the streamliner body of the W196R. MB offered a completely new appearance with this perfect form. It was entered into the Grand-Prix racing sport after the war.
Mercedes started three Streamliners at the 1954 premiere race, the Grand-Prix of France held in Reims. MB achieved with Juan Manuel Fangio, in place 1, and Karl Kling, in place 2, a terrific double win. From then on, the Mercedes-Stars, Juan Manuel Fangio, at the top, Karl Kling and Stirling Moss, celebrated with both the Streamliner and the W196 Monoposto (free wheel version) many great successes.
The W196R allowed Fangio to win his 2nd world championship in 1954 and his 3rd in 1955. Like in the first Grand Prix race in Reims, as well as at the last one in 1955 at Monza, the #18 Streamliner, with J.M. Fangio at the wheel, was able to win. After two years, this was the last start of the W196. Mercedes retracted from the Formula 1 racing sport.
