Converted GT3’s may still compete on rally stagesbut a factory-backed return is definitely something to dream about. Okay, we know that the 1971 “Red Pig” 300SELwas never a rally car and that it placed second at the 24 Hours of Spa. TheMercedes-Benz Rally lineage belongs to the SLC 500 and the W201 190E (beforethat idea was shelved.) As much as we’d love to see the glorious soundingM156/M159 6.2 in the behemoth
S-Class, that engine has been phased out and, well,having a twin-turbo V12 in its stead is not so bad is it?
