The Dutch owner of the 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190 production year decided to equip his car with a V12 6.0 engine from the top Mercedes-Benz 600 SEL. To install a multi-liter and multi-cylinder engine, it was necessary to replace the cooling system, steering, transmission, suspension and exhaust.

From the conveyor, the model was equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a capacity of 89 hp. To accommodate the installation from the 600 SEL in the engine compartment, the specialist was forced to move the radiator forward and design unusual fasteners.

Since the powerful V12 did not combine with the original gearbox, the Dutch enthusiast Johann Muter was forced to replace the transmission with a 5-speed automatic transmission from the Mercedes-Benz CL 600. The steering was borrowed from the E-Class, the wheel hubs and rims from the CL model. Custom pendant – BC Racing coilovers.

 The exhaust for the difficult model 190 was made to order. At the dynamometer stand Mercedes-Benz W201 with an engine from 600 SEL W140, demonstrated 424 hp. and 585 Nm.

 In a conversation with Autobild.de, the owner said that the car can accelerate to 350 km / h, and from 100 to 200 km / h in 11 seconds. The curb weight of a regular German sedan is about 1,400 kg, so it’s understandable why the car has excellent acceleration dynamics.

 It took the Dutchman 3 years to upgrade this car.
