It's amazing that Merc was pushing those speeds post 1950.. that said, they had all of the minds for one goal on multiple extreme projects which actually benefited them after the 2nd war! :smile:  Interesting post! :occasion14:

I wonder if that speed would be possible with those tires. I have no idea what they are made of but normal rubber tires would have a hard time with those speeds. From my understanding, that's one of the main reasons the Chiron is limited in it's speed as of now.

It would be great to make a replica of this and see if it could actually reach that speed.

Wow! I'm trying to gauge its size in the context of a 'normal' car. Looks huge! :)

From Wikipedia:

By 1939, the T80 was fully completed at a cost of RM 600,000. The car was over 8 meters (26 feet) long, had three axles with two of them driven, weighed over 2.7 metric tons (three short tons), and produced 3,000 hp (2,200 kW) together with the aerodynamics of specialist Josef Mickl to attain a projected speed of 750 km/h (470 mph).

Twice the length of a Mini, or a minivan from Renault or Citroen.
