Re: 6.9 Sbarro 6.9 Road Test

And this is how they finished M100 6.3 development when the Red Pig was killed off due to capacity limits. Rather disappointing really. They didnít bother with the 6.9 since the CIS wouldíve been a...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Apparently it wasnít built for CanAm at all, but it did start life as a CanAm McLaren M8F (chassis #4).

Word is when they imposed the capacity limit on Touring Cars (thereby killing the Red Pig),...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Or perhaps AMG deemed the series too unsafe with catastrophe just around the corner? Thus is would be short lived & not justified to make the investment?

Pity because the 6.9 would’ve been the...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

I find it very interesting that AMG dipped their toes in CanAm. Sounds odd there were complaints about the early (presumably M100) that was apparently too heavy & underpowered, since many of the...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

Geoff found it initially & I just dug a bit deeper to find some more info about the engines since Iím fascinated by the AMG premerger days & SOHC engine development. Iíve yet to view the link on a...

Re: 500SLC CanAm Race Car

500SLC CanAm Race Car

Thanks to Geoff for finding this unusual one-of-a-kind race car. Seems like it started life as a CanAm car which morphed into a wanna be LeMans prototype. Reported to have 600hp making it the most...

Re: W116 Full Body Kit Spotto

I think it was common back then to try to modernise older models with new style components. Itís very rare to see them now so I found it fascinating but personally I prefer the chrome bumpers.

Re: W116 Full Body Kit Spotto

Finally got more pix! 450SEL Euro version without AC originally. Current owner had it for 30years! Apparently his kids want it when he goes... Encouraged him to join up, but I doubt he’s tech savvy!...

Re: AMG 500SEC Group A Racecars

So it’s likely to be the most powerful naturally aspirated M117 ever made (338kW)!

In comparison:

VL Group A (Walkinshaw) road car 185kW,
1987 VL Race car: 320kW.

VN Group A road car:...

Re: AMG 500SEC Group A Racecars

Info on the large die cast model is interesting too. However, I doubt the race car wouldíve been fitted with a full exhaust, so it may not be accurate, but Iíd be happy to be proven wrong!

Re: Rebuilding W116 6.9 Struts

Seems thereís other jumping in on the game now.... I would say reasonably priced too but you do have to factor in freight & probably insurance!
