As expected, this is exactly what happened to this Merc, which was gifted with a GM small block V8. As if the seven liters of displacement weren’t enough, a massive blower was also added to the mix.
The result of of the muscle under... and over the hoodThe 280S may have never been as elegant as the S-Class line, but this particular example is a true hooligan. The sedan was fitted with the necessary mods for the Modified Street drag racing class and is now tearing drag strips across Australia apart.
We’re not sure about its exact output, but we do know it can pull 8s quarter mile runs, as you can see in the footage below. Thus, we wouldn’t be surprised to see DEBENZ putting north of 1,500 hp at the mercy of its driver’s right foot.
Perhaps certain people would’ve added the same amount of muscle, but went for a sleeper look, but DEBENZ is the exact opposite of that. While we adore sleepers, we can’t help but salute such an unapologetic effort.
