The Mercedes-Benz ‘Count Trossi’ SSK was the last car designed for Mercedes-Benz by Ferdinand Porsche before he left. The Mercedes-Benz ‘Count Trossi’ SSK is an evolution of the 1927 Modell S (S for Sport) which was based on the Modell K (K for Kurzer Radstand) variant of the Mercedes-Benz Typ 630.
Fewer than 40 SSKs were built during its production span, of which about half were sold as Rennwagen (racing cars). Many were crashed while racing and subsequently cannibalised for parts. Only four or five entirely original models remain, and their scarcity and rich heritage make them among the most sought after cars in the world.
