However, is it possible to see the same body of the 190E with a more powerful and modern Mercedes engine? That’s what Piper Motorsport hopes to unleash with their “Frankenstein Benz,” aptly called because it marries the body of the 190E (complete with the body kit for the complete look of the… Continue Reading »
