9 Amazing cars from the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart, Germany – you’ve never seen anything like these
8. 1928 Mercedes-Benz 27/170 Typ SSK
The name’s quite the mouthful, but you probably know this handsome open-wheeler as simply the SSK. Perhaps no other pre-war sporting, road-going Merc represents the marquee’s relentless efforts toward motorsports and sports prowess as the SSK. It cuts a dramatic figure, with its skinny fuselage and characteristic angled front grille. This was developed specifically for hillclimb dominance, especially with its 220-hp, supercharged inline-six.
