Event Description

Newport Car Museum Founder Gunther Buerman will unveil a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Mille Miglia Recreation when the Gull Wing International Club visits on May 6. If you are a Mercedes owner, you’re invited to drive your Mercedes to the Museum and show your key at the front door for $4 off a regular adult ticket of $20. (The discount will be honored during Museum hours 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

This special car,  a Mercedes-Benz authorized recreation made in Argentina by former Formula 1 driver Scuderia Bucci, was built to pay homage to the original car in which Mercedes team driver Stirling Moss broke the record (that still stands today) in the 1955 Mille Miglia. Only seven of these convertible race cars were originally built, and the designer turned two of them into coupes, one of which recently sold for a world record price of $143,000,000.
