1988 Mercedes-Benz Starts Up Again After Not Being Used for 16 Years

Most people consider diesel engines as far more superior than petrol-based ones in terms of reliability. Recently, a 1988 Mercedes-Benz W124 that has been stuck in the yard for 16 years proves just that. The W124, available in sedan, estate, coupe, and convertible variants, was produced by Mercedes from 1984 to 1997. A total of 2,562,143 units of the car was made during that period.

1977 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC Gets Hulked Up with Toyota 2JZ Engine

Seeing a classic 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC in an almost pristine look is definitely a rare treat. The car does not only have a beauty to boast, but it also has a powerful engine. However, an unnamed tuner did a restomod to the car that puts more oomph beneath its hood by swapping its engine with the Toyota 2JZ power unit. The 1977 450 SLC here is a mishmash of German architecture and Japanese engineering. According to Speedhunters, the original 4.5-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine of the car was replaced by a 3.0-liter inline six Toyota 2JZ unit. The resulting power of the swap is a whopping 450 hp for the… Continue Reading »

Back in the 1980s to the early 1990s, the Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5 16 Evolution was the most popular car produced by the German company. Of course, Mercedes decided to end its production because of the changing landscape of the auto industry. Besides, the 190E’s four-pot engine will not be able to handle the 6-cylinders and V-8s of today. 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 »
