Leno’s 1921 Benz Mercedes took a decade to restore, but it was well worth the wait
Jay Leno’s 1921 aero-engined Benz Mercedes, originally built for Brooklands, took the better part of a decade to restore—mostly due to its corroded steel water jackets. This speed machine was originally built using household parts in addition to its 18.8-liter Mercedes engine, which is an inline-six that was rated at 230 horsepower in 1914 when it was used in a fighter plane.
