• 300 SEL 6.8 AMG . a racing saloon with a history A fire red paint imposing tyres and a mighty engine under the bonnet – it only be the Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG. today, motorsport aficionados rave about the victory at the 24 of Spa-Francorchamps 36 years ago.Piloted by Heyer and Clemens Schickentanz, the saloon took its place on the grid of the classic long-distance in the Ardennes in Belgium alongside rivals from Alfa BMW, Chevrolet, Ford and Nobody had thought it possible, but the 300 SEL 6.8 AMG the line in second place on its first outing, winning its in the process. As a result, the company Affalterbach which had been in 1967 became famous – and the AMG legend was born out on the race

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 – at that time the German-built car in series production – the technical platform for the AMG racing With its V8 engine mustering 184 hp from a displacement of 6.3 litres and a torque of 51 mkg, the Stuttgart-built saloon was deemed to be the scourge of the car fraternity. In the racing version, AMG a host of measures including the displacement to 6.8 litres and fitting camshafts, larger intake as well as modified rocker and pistons to boost output to 315 hp and torque to 62 mkg. This a top speed of 265 km/h on the race compared to the standard-production saloon’s 221 However, this spectacular car was denied any further success a change to the regulations which a maximum capacity of 5.0 litres on in the European Touring Car Cup from – too little for the large-displacement, naturally AMG V8 engine.

Luxurious sports developing up to 235 kW/320 hp The achievement of the “6.8″ in Spa-Francorchamps had a definite on day-to-day business at AMG. the German and international press lavishing praise on the red touring car power-hungry Mercedes customers already requesting that AMG their 300 SEL 6.3.

Hans Aufrecht sought to triumph Jaguar and Alpina-BMW in the European Car Championship with the SLC. to the Group 2 regulations, the coupé slim down to 1225 – in its original guise, a standard 450 SLC the scales at around 1690 AMG succeeded in upping the output of the cc V8 from the previous 160 kW/217 hp to 276 hp; at the same time, the rated speed was increased from a 5000 to 6550 rpm.

During the race, the AMG team even to move up the field to third, a which it then repeated in the on the Salzburgring in Austria.

This was unprecedented: for the first time, a saloon with enough for four people, a large hallmark Mercedes comfort and straight-line

stability was capable of the of speeds which had previously the preserve of capricious sports – whose owners often had to with questionable endurance, handling characteristics and inadequate

The power unit behind the performance was the AMG V8 with newly four-valve technology and a capacity of 5547 cubic centimetres. The car evolved into the 300 E 6.0 AMG brought out in boasting a whole six litres of capacity, an output of 283 kW/385 hp and 566 metres of peak torque.

The 300 E 5.0 AMG developing 250 kW/340 hp was launched in and sparked off the use of V8 engines in the mid-range W 124 series. It can therefore be said AMG created the forerunner of the Mercedes-Benz E 500 saloon, which did not arrive on the until 1990.

The standard-fit four-speed transmission gave way to a five-speed shift. The luxury coupé was lighter to bring it down its original 1660 kilograms to its weight of 1340 kilograms. Two were constructed and entered in the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps race in After excellent results in and leading for many kilometres, Ludwig’s 500 SEC AMG with the start 5 was forced to retire with problems a good 12 hours the race. A second outing on the also ended prematurely, AMG to decide to focus exclusively on its activities in the DTM with the 190 E.
