 "Including a Description of the Mercedes World's Land Speed Record Contender"
British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee
1947
Softback Report
(Original cover price £1 5s !)
143 page illustrated report by Cameron Earl into the technology of capruted German racing cars examined at the end of WW2 by British Intelligence.
Famous document which was later issued in hardback as "Quicksilver" in the 1980s (in itself now a rare book)
Detailed drawings charts, plans and photos of cars such as the W125 and W154 which dominated Grand Proix Racing in the late 1930s.
The Mercedes Record car (T80) mentioned in the subtitle is also included, no one was even aware of it's existence until the fall of Germany. Yet it was complete and ready to run, stored in a workshop at the factory since 1940!.


An amazing piece of motor racing and military history.
Very few of these around and even less in such good condition as this one.
On the cover is the name "Jack Moor", the original owner of the report, who went on to build his own 500cc F3 racing car ("Wasp") around this time (suitably inspired by this one item imagines?)
