Mercedes Silberfeil (silver Arrow)

The Silberfeil (Silver Arrow) era was born because of some new regulations for the
1934 Formula racing car season. The (AIACR) specified that the cars weight could not exceed 750 Kilograms.
The 1934 W 25 Mercedes Silver Arrow was over weight by just one Kilo.
The Mercedes Benz team decided to sand off the white paint finish of the aluminum body to reveal it's gleaming silver finish.
It was just enough to meet the weight requirement and
the W 25 went on to take 1st place at Nurburging.
A legend was born and many more Silver Arrows went on to win through out the years!
