    well both, but one of them doesn't complain half as much as the other.

    "Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Karl Kling - three men who wrote motorsports history. In the mid-1950s, they helped make the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR one of the most successful racing sports cars of all time.

    With its straight-eight, 2982-cc engine that developed 310 horsepower, the 300SLR Silver Arrow was capable of more than 185 miles per hour - enough to power it to glory in all the top road races of 1955. The Mille Miglia, Eifelrennen, Swedish Grand Prix Tourist Trophy and the Targa Florio - the 300SLR won them all.

    Rudolf Uhlenhaut (1906-1989), head of both passenger-car testing and race-car development at Mercedes-Benz at the time, proceeded to build a road version of this formidable race car. The 300SLR coupe - better known to car enthusiasts as the "Uhlenhaut Coupe" - first appeared on the roads in 1955.

    The 300SLR coupe incorporated the design of the 300SL Gullwing with the technology of the 300SLR race car. Its long hood was complemented by side-mounted exhaust pipes, dramatic air vents and wire-spoke wheels. The cockpit, with its wraparound windshield, was elegantly sculptured. Uhlenhaut referred to his latest automotive work of art as a "hot-heeled touring car," and the 300SLR coupe lived up to its billing. Weighing only 2,457 pounds, yet developing 310 horsepower, the "Uhlenhaut Coupe" reached 180 miles per hour during testing, making the two-seater the fastest car of its time to be registered on public roads. However, the lightning-fast SLR coupe never made it into series production. The Stuttgart-based car maker felt that the mid-1950s was not the right time to bring out such a powerful sports car. As Mercedes pulled out of motorsport in 1955, the SLR coupe project was put on ice. Only two prototypes of this masterpiece of power and elegance were ever built."
