Product Details

At the end of the 1939 European Season with the outbreak of World War II and the lack of Motorsport activity, Mercedes Benz had pulled out of racing. However it wasn't until 1954 until the 'Silver Arrows' would return to the track when, after a gap of 15 years, they would return with a car that would be so far advanced in technology and would prove a force to be reckoned with.

This DVD includes the film "Pioneers of Progress" which covers the manufacturers’ successful return to Grand Prix racing and also provides a unique insight into the team and Mercedes factories. With stunning black and white footage that captures the 260bhp W196 as the drivers power the cars around the best racetracks in Europe. Despite only entering at the fourth round of the championship for the French Grand Prix at Reims, the silver cars would put in an amazing performance over the remaining races, winning 4 of the 6 races.

We get to watch as star drivers Juan Manuel Fangio, Karl Kling, Hans Hermann and Herman Lang put the cars through their paces as they take on the Ferraris of Jose Froilan Gonzales and Mike Hawthorn, Stirling Moss in the Maserati and Alberto Ascari in both Ferrari and Lancia cars.

As an extra feature, we get to take a look at a race at Avus in Berlin and an insight into how the Mercedes Benz 220 was built.
