The name Mercedes 39HP identifies a small family of luxury cars produced from 1906 to 1910 German automaker Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft for its Mercedes car brand.

Features and characteristics

It was a small family consisting of two models produced at the same time and they were going to go a step above the already exclusive models from the 37HP family. These two models were called respectively 39/75 HP and HP 39/80.These models were going to fill the already crowded segment of luxury cars made in those years by the same 37HP and Simplex 45HP. As was customary in the first four decades of the twentieth Century, the 39PS models were supplied as bare chassis from carrozzare at will of the wealthy customer.The 39HP went a 6-cylinder engine that was closely related to the drive that equipped the 37/65 HP. It was a 6-cylinder created by the coupling of two tricilindriche units merged separately. This engine, the first 6 cylinder engine in the history of Mercedes and Daimler, the measure was extended, from 140 to 150 mm, while the bore remained firm at 120 mm. As a result you gained a huge engine displacement cm³ 10180. The distribution was a side valve arranged in a T, i.e. those on one side intake and exhaust ones on the other side. The valves were in turn driven by two ACEs, one on each side, one row of valves.Regarding performance, in 39/75 HP (also called simply 75HP) maximum reached 75 HP, while the 39/80 HP came to 80 HP in both cases is always at 1300 RPM. The maximum speed of these models was about 95 km/h.As for the rest of the technical characteristics, the 39HP were set in the classic method used in those years, with frame printed sheet steel with U-section, suspension to rigid axle with semi-elliptic Springs, foot brake acting on the transmission shaft, Handbrake on the rear chain drive and 4-speed gearbox with clutch.The type of customer to whom the 39HP turned consisted essentially of monarchs. Not surprisingly, one of the customers that could afford a similar subject was Kaiser Wilhelm II, who acquired a 39/75 HP landaulet in 1907.In 1910 the 39HP were replaced by models from the 38HP family.
