Out of pure curiousity I wanted to know what a Mercedes-Benz C107 450 SLC would look like as a shooting break. However, midway throught the project I decided to create a panel van of the MAMPE Lufthansa Cocktail liveried racecar instead of the civilian shooting break. 😉

Mercedes-Benz W126 500 SE Drift Missile

This might not suit the 100% factory stock aficionados. No apologies here, however – as this could and probably should be done with a real vehicle. There are still plenty of these wonderful Bruno Sacco designed vehicles around, many of them in a rather sorry shape with plenty of rust. Saving one from the scrapyard and modifying it shouldn’t be considered a huge sin? The recipe is neither complicated nor excessively expensive: A custom suspension set-up suitable for drift duty with massive steering angles, a set of Corvette C3 wheels with modified hubcaps, a home-made bodykit and a couple of stickers. And for good measure, add a fender mounted rear-view mirror, because the first owner couldn’t afford to order the passenger side mirror. Now weld up a nice bumper bar to protect the bodywork when hanging out the tail and you’re good to go… either with the factory V8 or an engine swap of your choice. Have fun! 🙂

Mercedes-Benz W123 Pick-up by Baumgartner

Once again, a colleague challenged me to do a lunch break “quickie chop”. This time it was inspired by finding a stunning bagged and stanced Mercedes-Benz W123. A quick search provided an interesting base to start with: the W123 Pick-up by Baumgartner. Due to the limited time available, there was only so much I could do with it. Obviously, the vehicle is lowered substantially and sports period-correct aftermarket wheels. But there are also some modifications less obvious, like the shaved rear door and the relocated rear fender well. Hey… it could have been done that way back then. 😉

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé AMG (C126)

Bruno Sacco created his masterpiece for Mercedes-Benz: the C126 S-Class Coupé. One shouldn’t really mess with such an iconic design. Hence, I only changed very subtle things. The vehicle has been lowered over a set of multi-piece wheels with central locks*. The window trim has been color coded to match the body. The fenders have been widened ever so slightly and the door handles have been shaved. It still has an OE feel to it – but the appearance and attitude changed dramatically.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Bonneville Special | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2012)

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Bonneville Special

A picture of the John Fitch owned classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupé in Bonneville inspired me to turn the new SLS AMG Gullwing into a record seeking machine. I kept the looks rather close to the original 300SL Bonneville, but gave it an updated and more modern feel by using a different font for the lettering. This vehicle could be real – and provided having the money, I’d actually go for it and have some fun with it at the salt lake flats

If the marking F/GT is not correct for a new car like the SLS, please let me know what would be suitable. Thank you in advance.

FOR SALE | Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series

A car many people dream about – me included. A local businessman is thinking about selling his Black Series and approached me if I could take some pictures for him. I agreed, of course…

The CLK 63 AMG Black Series has been produced from 2007 to 2009. It is slightly heavier than the car on which it is based, but is significantly faster thanks to an updated differential, power-tuned engine, and various other tweaks. The CLK 63 AMG reaches 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.3 and 100 mph (161 km/h) in 9.3 seconds, while the CLK63 AMG Black Series takes just 4.0 to 60 mph (97 km/h), and 100 mph (161 km/h) takes just 8.8. In this Black Series model the rear seats have been removed, so this is a two-seater only. The Black Series Cost £100.000 (£34,000 more than the standard CLK63 AMG). However, thanks to power tweaks it can now reach, but is limited to, 186 mph. The engine is a 6.2L AMG V8 which produces 500 bhp and 465 lb.ft of torque.

Vehicle Details: will be added later.

To prevent any misunderstandings:

This is not my vehicle. I do not sell it myself. I just took the pictures and put them online for the gentleman wanting to sell it.

Mercedes-Benz R-Class Delivery Van

You could use a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for those express deliveries like everybody else does – but you could get there in half the time utilizing the Mercedes-Benz R-Class Delivery Van. It’s not just a sprinter – it’s a long distance runner! Oh… and a mighty fine vehicle for towing trailers as well.

Mercedes-Benz MLC-Class Concept

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is a very nice vehicle, no doubt about it. Defining the character lines, taking away two doors and a substantial part of the roof  yields a surprising result, putting the Sport in SUV. It could be called the MLC-Class, if Mercedes-Benz would actually want to build it.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class (W169) with bodykit

Modifying an A-Class Mercedes-Benz, am I insane? Well… kind of, yes. Few people would actually attempt do this in reality – but by just moving a couple of pixels around, the only thing wasted was time while having fun, not hard cash. I designed a bodykit for the W169, added larger wheels and think it does look better now.
