In 1954, Mercedes-Benz created in its experimental department a hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind model – the Mercedes-Benz racing car transporter. With a deep blue finish, soft curves of the body, and a top speed of 170 kph , the ‘Blue Wonder’ caused as much attention as the racing cars that it transported. After Mercedes-Benz retired from professional racing at the of 1955, the transporter disappeared from the public eye and was regrettably scrapped in 1967. In the early 90s, Daimler-Benz remembered the importance of this vehicle to its racing heritage. Under the direction of the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center, an official replica was resurrected.
