Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3
My latest crush is the MB 300SEL 6.3. It was Merc's answer to a muscle car when it was released in 1968 at the Geneva Motor Show. It took the normal 6 cylinder S-Class and dropped the 6.3-litre engine out of the 600 Grosser limousine. The two-tonne beast could sit on over 200kmh with 5 passengers. Awesome considering that was the 60s. Here's a video of a 300SEL 6.3 on the track.
I think I'll need to update my dream garage to house both a 600 Grosser and a 300SEL 6.3.
Here's a gushing page about classic big Benzes including the Grosser 600 and my fantasy car collection.
