An Exceptional Automobile The 37/90 Mercedes: The car was introduced in 1911 with a 90 HP four-cylinder engine that featured three pushrod and rocker arm actuated overhead
valves for each cylinder, two of which were exhausts. It was a sporting and racing car that went on to win many races, including two Vanderbilt Cup Races. See many more photos

Rob, They certainly do, I was fortunate to spend the afternoon behind the wheel of one and it was an experience.
