Mercedes - Benz 710 Super Sport 1930 right blue zw.psd
Mercedes - Benz 710 in world war 2 is one of the most powerful and modern vehicles of its time. Its high-speed durability and exceptional design set it apart from its competitors and paved the way for its widespread usage after the world war 2. The model was used extensively by both German and Italian military and civilian alike. During the war, the vehicle served in all theaters and even reached Finland in order to provide some much-needed assistance to the Finnish army there.
The powerful V Twelve engine powered the vehicle with tremendous energy and allowed it to traverse incredible distances unassisted. The speed of the vehicle was also unparalleled and it could cross the distance between Berlin and Milan just as quickly as it could from Louvain to Paris. Despite being a relatively modern concept at the time, Mercedes - Benz was ahead of its time in everything else - including their design philosophy for the production car.
One interesting fact about Mercedes - Benz 710 in world war 2 is that it was not only used by German military but also by the Italian military in their conquest of Italian lands in the Second World War. As they were quite happy to have the vehicle as a useful and stylish transport vehicle they never cared for the practicality or reliability aspects of the cars and this led to many of the components being changed or simply retired. It does however have a huge admirer's following today as it is considered to be a landmark of automotive engineering and it has been given honors in various historical events and it is also widely acclaimed in today's automotive industry.
