New Website - AMG Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.8 Rote Sau

(1/3) > >>

Grant V:

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.

Over the past few years I have been collecting pictures of 'Die Rote Sau' and piecing together its racing history from all the fragmented information found on the internet.
This has now been consolidated into a new website covering the racing history of this car along with its background, Daimler-Benz' failed attempt to race the Mercedes 300SEL 6.3 in Touring Car Racing and my current project.

Please visit and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed putting it together. Any further information about the car is welcome, so contact me directly via the site or post a comment in the Guestbook.

Nice work!

I followed our posts on M100 before they changed the site and it went to pot over there ::)


Thanks for sharing!

The photo journal documentation of the build is amazing!

nice to hear from you Grant, good on you for the site.
been a long time, and hope you are well

Grant V:
I'm very well, thank you Nathan.

As you can see, I've been distracted from things W116, but the 6.9 is slowly finding its way to the top of the list to be restored. Problem is I keep getting distracted by buying cars - it's all a bit mental actually. One day when I'm grown up I'll only have one classic car to toy with. That's what I keep telling myself....

Since being active here, a whole lot of other marques have found their way into the garage as well: Audi RS2 Avant, Citroen SM, Citroen DS21 Decapotable, Volvo 850R Station Wagon and an E23 BMW 745i, the South African version with the M88 M-Power motor.

And you Ozzies will be particularly proud of my 1973 Ford Rachero Bakkie, or Ford Falcon XA Ute as you would call it:

More recently another Australian made its way into the garage, a 2010 Chevrolet Lumina SS Ute, Or Holden SS VE Ute your side. It's a brilliant machine:
