Mille Miglia. #722 Driven by Stirling Moss and Dennis Jenkinson.
In 1955, Mercedes-Benz introduced its 300 SLR for the first time at the Mille Miglia. Among its toughest competitors were Ferrari, Maserati, and Aston Martin. Every minute, a competing car received its starting signal. Since 1949, the starting order had been decided by lot, so that each starting number was a record of the starting time. The young, but well-accomplished British race driver Stirling Moss, together with his co-pilot Denis Jenkinson (“Jenks”), received the starting number 722. That indicated that their exact starting time was 7:22 AM. What an unforgettable race they ran that day!
Described by Sir Stirling Moss recently as "The greatest sports car ever made".
This CMC SLR is hand-assembled from more than 1,500 single parts. It is a precision model that incorporates thoroughly-researched historical details and authentic replication.

He simply did not want to lose a single second unnecessarily.
