1931 Mercedes-Benz SSK Sport II

Chassis number : 36046

Share on:

This 1931 Mercedes-Benz 38/250 SSK is one of very few SSK motorcars with its original drivetrain and bodywork. Never restored, but always maintained and preserved to the highest possible standard, it remains one of the world's premier ambassadors for the marque and the model. Mercedes-Benz built 31 Model 38/250 SSK cars between 1929 and 1931.

This short-wheelbase example was specifically created with competition in mind, and the state-of-the-art chassis, designed by Ferdinand Porsche, was constructed to partner with the 7,069cc inline six-cylinder overhead-camshaft engine. By way of a Root supercharger, the SSK could produce 250 horsepower and had a top speed of 100 mph.

Chassis 36046 was completed on January 14, 1931, and was bodied by the Mercedes factory in sporting roadster coachwork with creme paint over cognac leather. Delivered new to Mr. Roy Lewis of Great Britain, this preserved SSK has had few owners, but they include Lord O'Neill and Fuad Majzub, a noted car collector from Persia. It was recently acquired by its current steward.
