I think a re-release of the w116 today would be awesome,
modern engine & drive-line range - the 6.9 would be replaced with the AMG 6.2 litre v8
interior to remain true to the style but incorporate modern creature comforts and technology etc.
Only problem is, reality - the car would never pass any current safety or crash tests and to do so it would be so heavily modified that it would look nothing like the original version and be half made out of plastic. Probably would look as ugly as sin too
SO the next best thing is, buy one and do it yourself
