MECHATRONIK MERCEDES COUPE & SL
PRICE: $POA OUTPUT: 228-268kW ENGINE: 4.3-5.5-litre V8
MECHATRONIK IS A vintage Mercedes-Benz specialist of more than 20-years, based near Stuttgart. It’s not your usual fastidiously original restoration outfit either, instead dedicating its expertise to synthesising new technology with old, enhancing the everyday useability of beloved W111 and W113-series Mercedes-Benzes.
Whether you’re the owner of the Bracq-designed ‘pagodaroof’ icon, or the larger Geiger ‘fintail’, the heart of your Mechatronik Mercedes will be the long-serving M113 V8 used in 34 different Daimler models from 1997 to 2007.
The petite pagoda roof M113 SL is bestowed with a 4.3-litre unit, while the larger W113 coupes and cabriolets gain 5.0 or 5.5-litre units. All carefully selected engines are meticulously rebuilt by hand.
The chassis is given a similar treatment, with modern brakes, suspension and retrofitted ABS.
There is a wide palette of original and bespoke paint colours to choose from, however, even more impressive is the range of interior leather, carpet and woodgrain options.
We’ll take a W111 5.5 coupe in 834 Mossgreen metallic, over Cognac leather, with a Makassar wood veneer, please…
