The Mercedes-Benz W25 Makes a Historical Comeback [Photo Gallery]
Naturally, this is not a coincidence, as the W25 was the model driven by Rudolf Caracciola when he set a record at the last Klausen Race, back in 1934 - a record which is unbroken on the original course to this very day.
The Mercedes-Benz W25 is known as being the original Silver Arrow and is powered by a supercharged inline eight cylinder engine that developed up to 494 hp in its highest evolution.
At the wheel of the world's last and only roadworthy Mercedes-Benz W25 will be former racing driver Roland Asch, who is an ex-Mercedes-Benz driver in the German Touring Car Championship back in the 1980s and 1990s.
The 11th Klausen Race, also known as the “hill climb Grand Prix of Switzerland”, is an event based on the ten original races that took place between 1922 and 1934 in the middles of Switzerland.
