Масштабная модель Mercedes W154 1938 Silver
The Great Victor of France
In 1938 a new racing formula was introduced, limiting the engine displacement of supercharged race cars to 3 liters. This rule change redefined the direction of motor sport racing for the succeeding years.
Mercedes developed an entirely new 485 hp V-12 engine for the W 154. A 5-speed transmission was added and mounted directly on the de Dion rear axle. One fuel tank was in the rear, and a second tank was in the cockpit, above the driver’s legs. In this car, the Daimler-Benz team of Caracciola, Lang, von Brauchitsch, and Seaman gained one victory after another. In 1938, Caracciola became European Champion. At the French Grand Prix on July 3, 1938, Mercedes earned a triple victory: von Brauchitsch came in first, Caracciola second, and Hermann Lang third. In 1939, Hermann Lang became European Champion with a revamped W 154.
