A little interior tweaking and you would be GTG

Interesting comment in the sales copy....I wonder if the crooked gunsight makes it go faster:


"This car offers an interesting contrast to the 500E that was built on the same platform. This car is feels faster and more balanced compared to 500 E."

Not sure about that but I'd definitely have that interior as a swap for mine. Every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Do those seats say "Clavic"?

And, does Mendel's Garage have anything to do with Bruce Mendel?

The colors on this car are original, but the door cards and rear seat look like they are from a 90+ model and a model that didn't have power windows.

The guys in the video are funny..they say "only due to the higher capacity he (500) pulls away" and "you (3.4 24v) totally burnt him at the start" 😂

They said it "feels faster" ... My friends E55 felt faster than my CL 600 V12TT but it was not

It appears to be a 3.2l motor. Normally there will be stampings on the engine block to denote the displacement but I am not sure if this was done on the M103. Externally, your not going to see anything that would indicate a 3.2l motor but it does have the modified air intake which was needed on the 3.2l motor and there are some AMG decals indicating the displacement is 3.2l (both could be added to a normal 3.0l motor). The date of this build pre-dates the AMG options being included in the VIN.
