The German name "Blitzen-Benz", which sounded even more combative to American ears, was not used until a little later. An imperial eagle was also painted onto the bonnet. But it was as yet without this embellishment that the Benz appeared on Daytona Beach for its record-breaking attempt on 16/17 March. The driver this time was the daredevil Barney Oldfield, who set a new record of 211.4 km/h. The record was not recognized, however, because the attempt did not comply with the regulations valid at the time.
