The SSK is considered the most sporty and exclusive version of the super-charged six-cylinder racing sports cars from Mercedes-Benz’ S series. Short for “Super-Sport Kurz” (meaning Short-wheelbase Super Sport), the SSK debuted on race tracks in 1928, only four weeks after the SS (Super-Sport) model was introduced. Among its major modifications was a wheelbase curtailed by 450 millimetres to highlight its uncompromising nifty characteristics. This made the SSK an ideal choice for hill climb racing.
Part of the legend of the SSK is that it was both a factory racing car and a customer vehicle. Some racing specifications, such as a more powerful compressor or a racing camshaft, were also available to private customers, while others were reserved for factory racing cars. It was common for private owners of an SSK to take part in races at weekends and use their two-seaters on weekdays as a means of transport in everyday life. Undoubtedly, the SSK was the ultimate supercar of its time.
