The badge is solid copper which has been plated in shiny chrome and handcrafted enamel. Mount it on any vehicle, or just keep in in your collection, on your desk or in your book shelf as a reminder of a great episode in the Italian and English racing history. Imagine driving the Mercedes SLR on public roads in Italy in 1955 flat out for approximatly 10 hours, and you will better understand what really happened.
The badge is a tribute to the Mercedes SLR carrying the number 722, and its silver and red colour scheme makes your hart beat faster. What a truly stunning car! And what a badge! It comes in a metal box, and on its backside it has a mounting screw, a large oval washer as well as a selflocking type nut. You can cut the length of the mounting screw to your desired length. The badge would look great in any collection or on any classic car of the era, but maybe especially good on that Mercedes of yours, or in that Mercedes collection you have!
