QUOTE OK, so they were streamlined Mercedes but you have to admit that had the Germans decided to build an 8 litre it probably would have caned the opposition, instead they decided on a diferent way to win.

Not to ruin your day but in 1952, a French geezer by the name of Pierre Levegh led the entire race until 23 minutes from the end in a pre-war Talbot T26GS fitted with a twin-seater body until, after he had driven by himself for that long and rather exhausted, he missed a shift, over-revved the 6-banger and dropped a valve. At that time he had the two Benzes soundly beaten.
