300 SEL 6.3 AMG

Car India - - FEATURE -

It all be­gan as a pri­vate ven­ture in 1966 by com­pany en­gi­neer Erich Wax­en­berger. The body styling was by Paul Bracq. The 6.3-litre V8 Mercedes-Benz M100 en­gine was taken from the huge 600, and dropped into the reg­u­lar W109 S-Class. The re­sult? A two-tonne sa­loon with per­for­mance to shame most sports cars with han­dling to match. What re­ally marked it as even more spe­cial from its con­tem­po­raries in the late 1960s was that it could cruise at over 200 km/h with five oc­cu­pants in com­plete com­fort.
