Mercedes-Benz » O317 K Race Transporter
The Mercedes-Benz O317 was converted from a bus to a racing car transporter with the body from Stuttgart-based company Robert Schenk. The Porsche company had two transport vehicles specially developed for the requirements of motor sports in the mid sixties. These vehicles could not only transport the current favourite, the Porsche Carrera 6, but all the necessary spares such as engines, gearboxes and body parts as well. These two vehicles, often derisively labeled “removal vans”, were being used by the Porsche racing division well into the eighties.
