The black, aluminium body of Mercedes Benz model S displayed in the Car & Carriage Caravan Museum looks impressive. It is absolutely the finest sports and road racing car ever produced by any manufacturer. It is one of the heaviest and most powerful of this type ever made. Only 146 examples of Model S were produced in Germany, all in 1927-1928.

The hood of the displayed car was open, so I could easily see a supercharged inline-six cylinder engine capable of producing 180 horsepower, 120 in normal aspiration form capable to speed the car up to 177 km/h (110 mph).
