Mitsubishi Galant AMG: Japanese by Birth, German by Heart

AMG is for Mercedes-Benz as Ralliart is for Mitsubishi. Right now, it’s hard to picture AMG engines going to cars outside the three-pointed star marque. However, once upon a time, there was such a thing as the Mitsubishi Galant AMG. Although AMG was already linked to Mercedes cars since 1971, it was only in 1993 when the two forged an exclusive contract. It wasn’t until 1999 when the performance studio would be absorbed by Mercedes. So prior to ’93, anybody with cash to burn can just bring their cars to the company for a hot power boost. The Galant was actually the second Mitsubishi car that AMG worked on. The… Continue Reading »

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 »

1992 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL Given a Wild Widebody Upgrade

The 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500 SL (R129) Roadster may be the entry point of buyers into the SL range, but it was such a hot commodity back in its time for the rich and famous. The late Princess Diana even leased one but it was not without controversy because the media questioned whether a member of the British royal family should drive a foreign car. Recently, we saw a market listing for the car on ClassicDriver. Aside from the fact that it is rare to find a 1992 500 SL in good condition nowadays, the subject stands out more because of its unique build, thanks to its special body package from… Continue Reading »

Good Deal or Bust: Is This $5,500 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Worth It?

The 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL500 R230 is such a beautiful convertible with its elegant and sporty design matched with a powerful V8 engine. However, buying a used one, especially at a very low price, certainly raises a lot of red flags because if you are unfortunate enough to land on a problematic unit, the repairs can be very costly. Upon its introduction, the MSRP of a brand new 2004 SL started at $88,000. Based on Edmunds, a used 2003 to 2005 model of the car is around the $11,000 mark. Recently, YouTuber Car Wizard scored a deal on this gem at an auction for only $5,500. That’s only half of its… Continue Reading »

The iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing Coupe produced from 1954 to 1957 is one of the most sought after classic cars of collectors. A restored car of the model usually fetches at least a million dollars in the auction block. Recently, a 1955 model of the auto was spotted, and what makes it very rare is its unrestored state. The 65-year-old car may be the last unrestored SL Gullwing out there. The model comes in classic fire engine red finish with muted gray leather in its upholstery. It’s also fitted with special unrestored Rudge wheels. The vehicle was made as a US-export model and has gone through five owners in… Continue Reading »

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. It’s worth noting that the E-Class stemmed from the 1993 model of the series too. A sedan variant of the model that has been dormant for 16 years was found by YouTuber Flexiny. Rust was already eating up the body of the car, the tires… Continue Reading »

A Look Back at the All-time Best Vintage Mercs

It’s been 145 years since Benz (as it was just Benz at that time) released the 1885 Benz Patent Motorwagen, the first modern car ever made. Truly a horseless carriage, this car was the first of its kind to ever make a proper trip, proving to everybody that cars were the way forward. Over the years, Mercedes-Benz has made a staggering array of famous cars that were popular all across the globe. Their modus operandum is to redefine how cars look, how cars operate, and of course how enjoyable they are to drive. They’re still breaking milestones, one only needs to look at their Maybach 6 Cabriolet concept to know… Continue Reading »
