Although the famous Silver Arrows of Mercedes-Benz and its German rival Auto Union had proved to be virtually invincible in Grand Prix racing during the 1930s, the austerity of the early post-war years meant that designing and building a new team of Formula One cars was simply not feasible.
However, the recovery of Mercedes-Benz was truly remarkable and, by 1950, production had exceeded the record total set in 1937.
Its first prestige model of the post-war era, the 300 saloon, appeared in 1951 and this was the car that was to provide the wherewithal for the company's return to competition.
