Frankenstein Benz: Mercedes 190E Body fitted to C63 AMG Chassis

5 posts in this topic

Incredible build from Piper Motorsport who grafted a mid-Eighties Mercedes-Benz 190E on to the chassis and powertrain from a modern C63 AMG sedan.

"To make a long story short... the 190E will feature the engine, transmission, entire driveline, suspension, brakes, firewall, dash, electronics and even the floor pan from the C63 AMG," the description for the shop's incredibly-detailed Facebook album reads. And it is indeed a long story, the first picture showing the two donor cars side-by-side was uploaded a full five years ago.

Love that!

Many times, the newer designs could do with an older body on them, as the older bodies have shape, style and looks about them.  The new ones are too.... meh...

I think the Yank custom car builders (Counts Customs, Gas Monkey etc) excel at that stuff when they totally rebuild/replace the chassis along adding new V8 running gear.
