The Mercedes Benz racing department used this cool transporter, called the “Blue Wonder”, to chauffeur its racing cars to tracks in 1955. It had a top speed of 108 MPH, important if you are running all over Europe racing your successful cars.

The original was destroyed but a few copies have been made. The most accurate reproduction is at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart. Of course, Jay Leno has to have another copy. Here’s a great video of Jay Leno taking it for a drive.
