Now this is a German super sedan.
A while back, Jay Leno asked his viewers whether or not he should restomod his very high mileage 1972 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3, replacing the original engine with a modern SLS power plant. The answer was apparently an overwhelming “no” and Jay is showing us the car as a way of saying that he really does listen. The car will instead be restored to its original glory, and said glory is indeed substantial.
This is the car that set the standard for the German super sedans that we see today, a big 4-door that could outrun Ferraris. What a marvelous machine.
