1900 Daimler Phoenix 23PS

The 23 hp Phoenix was Daimler’s most powerful racing car in 1900. Its high center of gravity, heavy 660-pound engine and short wheelbase – which was extended for the variant shown here – made it difficult to control. Following a serious accident in the Nice – La Turbie race in March 1900, Wilhelm Maybach set about building a new racing car: the first Mercedes.
