If there are any mysterious beauties in the automotive history, this Mercedes-Benz SSK with body work commissioned by the Italian Count Trossi is definitely among them. Its designer is unknown, as well as the coach builder that turned the bare SSK chassis in such a glorious machine which hood takes half of the car`s length. And yes, it is one of a kind inside and out.
The SSK is the last Mercedes model engineered by Ferdinand Porsche before he left the company to establish a brand of his own. And what a car he made – Mercedes-Benz SSK is the racing vehicle that gave Rudolf Caracciola the championship title in season 1930. But Count Trossi SSK is good enough to steal the beauty show too. Currently serving as one of the top attractions in the private car collection of the fashion icon Ralph Lauren, this car won both Pebble Beach Concours de Elegance and Villa d`Este Concours in Italy. Its spectacular shapes are caught by Jacek Moga in a beautiful artwork that you can own as stylish poster print.
