The prototype manufactured in the spring of 1942 was supposed to represent an updated project of Daimler-Benz. It featured a new chassis with torsion-bar suspension and eight support rollers placed in a checkerboard layout. The plan was to mount the Maybach HL 210 P45 engine and the 75 mm KwK 42 L/71 gun on the vehicle. However, the MAN project (future Pz.Kpfw. V Panther) was eventually selected. No prototypes of the Daimler-Benz vehicle were finished.
