A company founded by a formed Swiss driver, Peter Sauber, Sauber Motorsport AG launched this model called the Sauber C9 (it was later renamed as the Mercedes C9).
This car uses the Mercedes made M119 engine that is a 5.0 litre HL 90° Turbo V8 Twin KKK Turbo engine one and has a body that is largely made up of aluminium. During it’s first year in 1987 this car did not see much positive results but the very next year after having done several engine tuning changes went on to finish second, just behind the Jaguar Silk Cut team.
But it was the year 1989, that this C9 proved her true colours when it went on to win nearly all the races. In the same year (9th April), drivers Mauro Baldi and Jean-Louis Schlesser won the 480 km Suzuka (Japan) race after completing 82 laps in the Group C category. This metal model is a replica of the winning car.
