Mercedes-Benz Typ W125 Bronze, 1937
Price Code: SOLD
An original 1937 silvered-bronze presentation model of a Mercedes-Benz Typ W125 racing car. This particular model is one of only four, presented by the chief executive Wilhelm Kissel to all the drivers of the Mercedes-Benz racing team at the end of the season in 1937, Caracciola, von Brauchitsch, Lang or Seaman.
Caracciola’s and Lang’s models are accounted for, and due to the fact that the provenance of this bronze is the Estate of Günther Molter, the Public Relations Manager for Daimler-Benz, it is highly likely this is the model of Manfred von Brauchitsch, who remained a lifelong friend of Molter. The model is set on a marble plinth within a bespoke presentation case, having been sympathetically polished by our silversmiths. German, 1937.
Length of base: 12 inches (30 cm)
