The Mercedes-Benz W196 R was designed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut and Fritz Nallinger. Because of its streamlined shape, it was able to reach high speeds.

The W196 R was built fourteen times, including the prototype.

From the European Grand Prix on the Nürburgring, a version with free-standing wheels was switched to, which is also known as a monoposto.

On a technical level, the vehicle was manufactured with the highest quality at the time and had, for example, a tubular space frame, a torsion bar suspension, an articulated swing axle and turbo-cooled duplex drum brakes.

The 290 hp vehicles were driven by Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss.

In the twelve Grand Prix races, the two were able to achieve nine wins from twelve Grand Prix races.
