Classic footage featuring 1937 Mercedes W125

1937 Mercedes-Benz W125This clip found on youtube was originally filmed in 1962 and features the 1937 Mercedes-Benz W125. One of the most famous of the early Grand Prix cars, it had a supercharged straight 8 cylinder producing around 600bhp. Apart from the wonderful car, being driven by Hermann Lang, what makes this clip so good is the commentary from Graham Hill. Even though so much has changed since the film was made, much of Hill’s words still remain valid.
