Stirling Moss’ 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SLR
Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe
In the base C250, the former V-6 is replaced with a 1796-cc turbocharged direct-injected inline-4 making 201 bhp at 5500 rpm, and 229 lb.-ft. of torque from 2200 to 4300 rpm.
Mercedes to build rival to Porsche 911.
Our sources have confirmed that Mercedes-Benz is hard at work on a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe to rival the likes of the Porsche 911, Bentley Continental GT and Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Based on the next-generation SL-Class architecture, the SLC will be smaller and lighter than the luxurious 2-seat roadster.
The SLC will likely be powered by an AMG-tuned 5.5-liter V-8 engine.
It has been a while since the SLC name graced a Mercedes-Benz. The last iteration was the long-lived C107 model, which lasted from 1971 to 1981. The new SLC will borrow some styling cues from the past, though the shape appears wholly modern and less retro in spirit than the SLS AMG.

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
Location: Rotterdam Harbor, Netherlands
Mercedes-Benz CLK LM. LM stands for Le Mans as the car was originally prepared by Mercedes-AMG to compete at the 24-hours event on the famous French race track.
The team decided not to use the original CLK GTR competing in the FIA GT races as they believed that the V12 AMG engine would not be capable to run for such a long period. Instead they installed the M119 V8 engine used in other racing series. Of course, the displacement was enlarged so that it was able to produce more power. Peak horsepower is around 600 (450 kW) and the race car runs to speeds up to 330 km/h (205 mph).
Along with the engine replacement, there were other changes to the car as well. Aerodynamics were improved, the roof was lowered and a new air engine intake was crafted. In total Mercedes-AMG produced 4 racing cars and one road-legal to meet FIA homologation rules for 1998.
