Hello at all,

I am new on this forum, I am French and well on I like much the great price and particularly the Era of the Titans. I am with the research of the chassis numbers of Mercedes-Benz W25 season 1934 to 1936 race by race.

Best regards.

It would be great if the factory museum could restore one of its W25s to running condition so that we could enjoy the distinctive engine sound clearly heard in all the old period film footage.

I believe the museum has at least two W25s?

One was at the Goodwood Festival the last time I went and had a wonderful patina - this one should never be restored!
