History of the Mercer: Mercer was an American automobile manufacturer from 1909 until 1925. It was notable for its high-performance cars, especially the Type 35 Race about. The result was one of the most admired sports cars of the decade; the 1910 Type-35R Race about, a stripped-down, two-seat speedster, designed to be "safely and consistently" driven at over 70 mph (110 km/h) (it was capable of over 90 mph (140 km/h). The Race about's inline 4-cylinder T-head engine displaced 293 cubic inches (4,800 cc) and developed 55 horsepower (41 kW) at 1,650 revolutions per minute. It won five of the six 1911 races it was entered in, losing only the first Indianapolis 500. Hundreds of racing victories followed. The Race about became one of the premier racing thoroughbreds of the era- highly coveted for its quality construction and exceptional handling.
