Currently on display at The Revs Institute is the 1954 Mercedes-Benz W-196 Streamliner. Inside the latticework of its space frame chassis was a twin-cam straight-8 engine laid over upon its right side to lower the car’s hood height. Innovative engine features included Bosch fuel injection and ‘desmodromic’ (mechanically closed) valves that enabled exceptionally high revs to be used without damage. While the W196 would wear conventional open-wheel bodywork for most races, it could be fitted with a beautifully streamlined, aerodynamic closed-wheel body, hand-formed from magnesium-elektron alloy sheet that you see here. Mercedes built 15 W196 machines.
