Limited Edition 50 pcs.
…the paths of the successful star drivers are separated: Formula 1 world champion Juan Manuel Fangio goes to the Scuderia and Stirling Moss signed with Maserati…
The year after. After only one year together at Mercedes in 1955, the paths of the successful star drivers are separated: Formula 1 world champion Juan Manuel Fangio goes to the Scuderia and immediately repeats his world championship success, now in the Ferrari D50.
Stirling Moss never stepped out of the shadow of the invincible Fangio in the 1955 Formula One season and became runner-up with a race victory and two second places. In the World Sports Car Championship with the Mercedes-Benz SLR, on the other hand, Moss shows all his skills and an intrepid driving style. His victories at the Mille Miglia, the RAC Tourist Trophy and the Targa Florio secure his employer Mercedes-Benz the World Cup title.
In 1956, Moss signed with Maserati and again competed in Formula 1 and the World Sports Car Championship, which Maserati competed in with the 300S. The fate remains true to the “eternal second”: He becomes runner-up world champion in both racing series.
