1924 Mercedes Benz Targa Florio Red
In 1923, the era of supercharged racing cars began. The Daimler factory in Untertürkheim of Stuttgart did not sit idle on this trend, and the development of a new supercharged vehicle soon got under way.
It was meant to develop a new racer for the 1924 Targa Florio, and Ferdinand Porsche was the new chief designer at Daimler Motor Company. Under his personal direction, a team of engineers conducted an in-depth look into the 1923 M7294 compressor engine and came up with some ground-breaking upgrades. As a result, the mximum output was pushed up to 126 hp (even to 150 hp in late 1924). This was made possible by relocating the compressor – Roots blower – to the front of the engine. When more power was needed, it could be obtained by a forceful step on the gas pedal. This would trigger the mechanic action or movement to bring the output from a normal 68 hp up to 126 hp.
With this variant we offer you a model complete in red, without starting numbers.
