Built during the 1930s, this avant-garde Mercedes still holds the fastest race record on a public road.

Developed from the Mercedes-Benz W125 Formel-Rennwagen, Rekordwagen was specially designed for Rudolf Caracciola's record of 432.7 km/h (268 mph) over the flying kilometre on 28 January 1938, which still remains the fastest ever officially timed speed on a public road. Same it is with the fascinating design, which presents one of the most extraordinary car forms from the interwar period.
