1. 1930 Mercedes-Benz 710 SSK Trossi Roadster
Picture a car today that has 507 ft-lbs of torque and 300 hp — that would be pretty impressive in 2016. Now, imagine a car with the same specs over 85 years ago in 1930. The Mercedes-Benz 710 SSK Trossi Roadster was well beyond its time, and the car must have blown people’s minds in a day when most vehicles didn’t even have one-third of its power. This model had a 7.0 liter straight six supercharged engine and could reach a speed of 120 miles per hour, which was also outstanding in the early 30s.
