Vath Restores Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, let us tip our hats to German tuner Vath, which has showed that it can do much more than just tweak new Mercs by taking on a complex restoration project and managing to bring a Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 back to life.

The vehicle belongs to the W109 generation, which was built between 1968 and 1972, and uses an M100 6.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 unit that delivers 250 hp and a peak torque of 510 Nm (376 lb-ft). The original specs show that the car needed 6.5 seconds to cover the 0 to 62 mph sprint and offered a top speed of 137 mph (220 km/h).

Now that we’ve established the fact that its performance specs are still respectable today, let’s get back to the restoration process. Vath completely restored the engine and the axles of the car, while the exterior and the cabin were partially refurbished.
