Description about the model
Technical superiority, pure and simple, led the C9 to record the fastest lap times in 12 out of 20 races, earn fifteen podium finishes and score brilliant 1st, 2nd and 5th place finishes at 1989 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The support and efforts of Peter Sauber were paramount to the return of Mercedes-Benz to international racing in 1988. The C9 won 5 of 11 major races that year. In 1989, however, the thoroughbred changed its colors and became the new Silver Arrow. In this classic livery Mercedes clinched the World Sports Car Championship!
