Mercedes is known to only have made two of them and they were both for Porsche. One is owned by Porsche, this one, "Buster", is part of the Brumos Collection. Carrying everything from 910s to 956s in its cargo hold this Porsche transporter is said to have "struck the fear of God in other team's hearts".

"Inside that truck was some wickedly fast race cars." - Hurley Haywood
