It's a wonder that any brakes, yet alone pre-war drums would be able to cope with the forces of such power and two tons of weight.

Most of the dials are standard Mercedes-Benz fare, except for a Jaeger ammeter.
It's a wonder that any brakes, yet alone pre-war drums would be able to cope with the forces of such power and two tons of weight.
Two examples on this engine were higher compression pistons and the renowned ’elephant blower’ or supercharger.
During our research for the restoration, the Trossi family archives yielded two renderings from an unknown, independent coachbuilder which were composed from the Count’s personal sketches of the open roadster without top (aperto) that you see here.
