This car was delivered to Mercedes-Benz of London as an original Model S then was uprated to full 'SS' 7 liter supercharged specification and fitted with this special lightweight coachwork by Barker of London. It was delivered to a Captain Miller on behalf of Earl Howe, the British racing driver and co-founder of the British Racing Driver's Club. Howe was a regular Le Mans entrant between 1929 and 1935, winning it in an Alfa Romeo in 1931. The Mercedes-Benz SS was a perfect fast road car for someone with such a sporting life-style, and Howe was well known for having one of 'Europe's most elaborate' collection of racing cars. This car still retains its original Marchal lighting equipment and chrome plated wheels that are complimented by the low cut doors and the unusual torpedo style running boards containing tools and other ancillary equipment.
