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!

AMG 500SEC Group A Racecars

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!

Re: 6.9 Transmission Upgrade

This is certainly a significant modification & not something you can achieve overnight. And probably not something youíd want to do if youíre worried about resale....

Even stranger that I just had a closer look at the list & it seems the rear heaters & blind were a NCO on the UK 560 limo!! Did the original owner actually say no thanks??
