    This nice car has won the 1914 French Grand Prix with Christian Lautenschlager and its the only official win for the 1914 Mercedes that counted towards the pre-war grands prix seasons.

    Suprised cars went that fast in 1914. Never thought about race cars back then. Figured that happend in the 30's.
     
  13. Re: ITS UGLy

    I think it has its own kind of class, and a 100+ in 1914, that is impressive !<!-- Signature -->

    Hey Dj CRazzY

    We have to thank Benz for making the first motor car. There you go.
     
  15. Re: ITS UGLy

    Hey sprjames, people have been racing cars since they were invented. The car race in the US was in 1895 in Chicago, if you think they didn't race before the 1930's, you're sorely mistaken.

  17. Re: ITS UGLy

    Its not ugly - that was the style of the formula one cars at the time!<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: ITS UGLy

    it looks wierd to us but at their time it was like a Mclaren F1.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Mr Mercedes

    How long was he seperate from benz?
     
  20. Re: Mr Mercedes

    Being a bit vague, but I'll try to answer. Karl Benz, Emil Jellinick (father of Mercedes and primary money source), and Gottlieb Diamler never met each other in person, ever. They exchanged commentary with each other, but never in person.
