The Holy Grail of Automobiles

This car is 83 years old. It is so ahead of its – and our – time that it has practically lapped itself.

It is the legendary Mercedes Benz Trossi SSK, the last car that Ferdinand Porsche designed before he started his own company. (That would be Porsche). Only five still exist, and this one was owned by Count Trossi himself. Its now owned by Ralph Lauren, and you can watch the light rays surrender at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
