Mercedes have decided to announce its “star” which will present the exhibition of vintage cars in Paris – Retro mobile.
According to Germany’s star of the show will be the Mercedes-Benz 540 K Streamliner, produced in 1938.

German car, which is now 77 years is defined by many as “ahead of its time” and was the forerunner of the modern Mercedes S-Class Coupe.

Mercedes-Benz 540 K Streamliner is made of lightweight materials such as aluminum and has a very aerodynamic shape – the coefficient of resistance is quite good and modern standards – 0.36 Cd.

The car was set up in the desire of Nazi Germany to dominate the world of motor racing, as Mercedes 540 K Streamliner was supposed to debut race from Berlin to Rome.

The competition was also laden with symbolism, facing two dictatorial countries in the competition area – the Germans wanted to win at any cost and therefore are not wasting any funds for the creation of aerodynamic Mercedes.

The competition, however, collapsed, and shortly thereafter began and World War II, where powerful Mercedes used for the testing of tires, however, he survived the war intact.

German vintage is powered by 5.4-liter V8 engine with 180 hp, allowing the German machine supports a maximum speed of 185 km/ h.

On auto show Mercedes will show two more cars – racing version of the 300 SL from 1953 and concept supercar C 111 of 1970.

Retro show in Paris will begin on February 4 and will continue until the 8th.
