Mercedes W163
It's questionable whether the W163 could be called a separate model from the W154, since the 163 actually refers to the new M163 engine, which was also used on the W154 for the 1939 season. What was apparent to everyone was the car's new bodywork. The Duralumin shell presented a low, wide shark-like nose tapering to a more compact tail, forming a tight skin over the engine. Total weight was 150 lbs. less than the previous year's car while the new engine would produce approximately 480 bhp. Fuel injection was tried to mixed results. Newly redesigned drum brakes with angled 'turbo' vanes exhausting heated air from within were also used.
