Description


Thank you Ladies and Gentlemen for your kind comments about my models! I never heard the name "Mercer" before looking on the web for a new model. Mercer was an American automobile manufacturer from 1909 until 1925. It was notable for its high-performance cars, especially the Type 35 Raceabout. The 1910 Type-35R Raceabout, a stripped-down, two-seat speedster, designed to be "safely and consistently" driven at over 70 mph (110 km/h). It was capable of over 90 mph (140 km/h). The Raceabout's inline 4-cylinder T-head engine displaced 293 cubic inches (4,800 cc) and developed 55 horsepower (41 kW) at 1,650 revolutions per minute. The Mercer Type 35R Raceabout defined the concept of “sports car” long before it became a common description. The T-head-powered Type 35R was recognized from its introduction for elemental appearance, ample power, and most importantly, the hard-to-define-but-easy-to-recognize attribute of “balance.” It won races and the hearts and admiration of sporting drivers from its inception. Few automobiles can claim the distinction of having remained valuable throughout their histories. The Mercer Type 35R is one of them, as they have always had appreciative long-term owners, in whose hands their combination of style and performance have been carefully preserved, and they have been frequently and enthusiastically exercised. But, to be true, it was probably not easy to drive such a car with the driving-wheel brushing the male attributes and the chest and with the legs stretched right to reach the pedals!

Et ne dis plus JAMAIS que tu n'es pas bon pour le rendu ! Là, ça brille, ça pète, c'est superbe...quelle belle auto ! Mais je préfère nettement la place du conducteur, vaguement protégé, que celle du passager qui devait en prendre plein la poire ! et à 110, voire 140, ça secoue ! Un très grand bravo.

Superbe modéle encore une fois Alain, il va falloir farfouiller dans la malle aux costumes pour lui trouver des costumes dignes de ses conducteurs 😃

Chère Ute, je ne suis pas certain que beaucoup de femmes avaient l'autorisation de leur père ou de leur mari pour conduire ces "engins". Les femmes conductrices étaient TRES rares dans ce monde de "machos" alors les femmes pilotes de voitures de sport ou de courses en 1911 étaient rarissimes!!!! Dorothy Levitt () est une exception et une femme extraordinaire!
