With the 300 SLR and the almost legendary starting number 722 Stirling Moss and his co-pilot Dennis Jenkinson became the victors of the 22nd edition of the Mille Miglia in 1955. They even set a fantastic new track record of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds. So this 1,600 km long endurance race became the fastest Mille Miglia of all times with an average of 156.3 km/h.

According to CMC this is a true-to-scale body of the Mille Miglia racing version. There is a double headrest that contains a stainless steel and removable fuel filler cap. Both headrests can fold upwards as a single unit to reveal the spare wheels. Authentically positioned starting number 722 (tampon printing)

During the race, Stirling Moss drove the car with an opening in the right hand side of the car for easy maintenance. The cover for this opening is included in the box and can be put to place with a simple magnetic mechanism.

Both headrests can be tilted in an upward position to open the trunk with the spare wheels. Both wheels can be removed and you get a view on another part of the engine...

Very detailed dashboard with all instruments and control elements, fabric seat covering and leather interior....Three spoked steering wheel.

Higly detailed 8-cylinder in-line-engine, all aggregates complete with pipes and cabling. Another nice piece of work by CMC. Even the inscription on the engine parts are readable..

Also included is the "roller-map", a contribution by his co-pilot Dennis Jenkins and what was in fact a data carrier. This map contained all the important track informations....
