1970 Mercedes-Benz W111 Gets a Modern AMG Engine Transplant

The Mercedes-Benz W111 is definitely one of the darlings in restomodding. One of the leading companies that specialize in such projects is Mechatronik, and here’s another one of its works. Outside, the 1970 W111 still possesses its pristine shine. Going inside reveals the same leather covers on the interior upholstery, floor carpeting, floor mats, analog indicators, buttons, switches, levers, classic steering wheel, and cassette player found in the car when it came out in the bell-bottoms jeans era. It’s like being in another time inside the W111 until one starts its engine and drives off with it. That’s because the 3.5-liter V8 engine of the car with around 200 hp… Continue Reading »

That means a more elegant and sportier car with a major performance boost up ahead. Rumors say that the auto will feature an all-wheel-drive system either as a standard or optional configuration. Then it will carry the high-performance brand’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 partnered with an electric motor to deliver a mild-hybrid output of over 800 hp.

S-Klub Teases a New Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster Restomod

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster is such a gem in the three-pointed star marque’s colorful history. So it is such a treat seeing one in a good condition, and it is such a delight seeing this classic being restored to its near-pristine condition. It comes as worrisome though whenever a tuner announces its plans to make major alterations to the vehicle.

It comes with some teasers from Jon Sibal, a car designer who is known for his virtual auto concepts and 3D renders. One of the recent projects of the artist was the Porsche 550… Continue Reading »

A one of a kind, four-decade-old Mercedes-Benz 380 SL Roadster that has been altered beyond recognition is hitting the auction block in Las Vegas this June.

Mercedes-Benz SLK Takes a Bow with SLC Final Edition Model

The Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition is here! The new model marks the end of an era for the car formerly known as the Mercedes-Benz SLK when it was introduced in 1996. The SLC is Mercedes’ smallest two-seater roadster, so the end of its production means that it will leave a void in that category. Well, that’s not until the German automaker releases another small roadster to fill in the gap in the foreseeable future. So far, there are no official statements of what the carmaker has in store for the model’s successor. The SLC Final Edition can be ordered starting today, and deliveries for it will commence in March. The… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz SL: One of the Longest Surviving Car Models in the World

The Mercedes-Benz SL is the three-pointed star marque’s oldest model to date that is being produced until now. Introduced in 1954, the SL is one of the longest surviving car models in the world today. The name “SL” stands for “Sportlich-Leicht” or “Sport Lightweight”. Max Hoffman, a luxury vehicle importer based in New York during the post-war period, was the one who pitched the idea of a toned-down Gran Prix car that aimed to attract performance car enthusiasts. The first to be produced in the range was the 300 SL Gullwing. The 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing came with a 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 212 hp, which was quite impressive for its… Continue Reading »
