This is the 18-litre aero-engined Mercedes driven by John Noel and John Pole - thought to have its origins in Zborowski's "Chitty lll".

That was my impression too... but the 'White Mercedes' aka 'Chitty III' had smaller drum brakes at front, did without the chassis reinforcements and had a totally different rear side. This calls for investigation!
