Description of the original vehicle: Count Carlo Trossi was a blue blooded Italian decended from the Castle Caglinico in Piemont/Italy.
He was a motorsport enthusiast and became in 1931 2nd president of the Scuderia Enzo Ferrari. As a racedriver, he was able to achieve a formidable 2nd place at the 1932 Mille Miglia.
Also in 1932, Trossi bought the Mercedes SSK-chassis Nr.36038 with the engine number 77640 at the Mercedes branch office in Rome.

The english body worker Willie White provided the powerfull 7 litre compressor engine with a unique and fascinating body. From this day on the Trossi Mercedes had a distinctive look. While all serial Mercedes cars of the thirties was painted in white, Conte Trossi painted his SSK in bright black.
