Mazda and NSU tend to get all the credit for Wankel rotary engines in cars, but Mercedes also did quite a bit of Wankel development, using the motors in SLs as well as in the legendary C111 experimental vehicle you see above. C111s are incredibly rare, and yet somehow, someone on eBay claims to have parts from one of the vehicles’ Wankel engines for sale. Mercedes first showed the C111 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1969 after having begun working on the vehicle in 1967 for the purpose of testing fiberglass car bodies and also for proving out Wankel rotary engines like this one: Mercedes made a number of different C111 experimental cars; the four-rotor engine you see above came out of the 1970 C111-II, and made 350 horsepower, which was enough to get the car to 62 mph in under five seconds and to a top speed of over 186 mph. But before the C111-II, there was the 1969 C111-I which had a 280 HP three-rotor Wankel engine. It’s not plainly stated on the Ebay ad which version of … [Read more...] about Is This Really an Ultra-Rare Mercedes C111 Wankel Rotor and Housing for Sale on Ebay?

For sale right now in Colorado is a bearded, flannel-wearing millennial’s dream: a vintage Mercedes Benz 190 diesel that solves the problem of high rent with a built-in camper. It’s actually a really cool setup. After a reader named Mason sent me this Craigslist post, I called up the owner, Gene, to learn a bit more about this 1964 Mercedes 190D whose rear seats, rear roof section, and trunk lid have been replaced with a camper. Gene told me he picked up this beast while hunting for one of his favorite cars: the Volvo 240. “I’ve had 150 Volvos in my life,” he told me. “About a good hundred were Volvo 240 wagons.” One day, while driving around, Gene stopped by a lot in which he’d seen a 240 wagon and another car numerous times. “I drove past where [the Mercedes] parked all the time, and from the side I thought it was a Checker of the same vintage,” the Boulder native told me. Gene spoke with the owner, who actually hadn’t … [Read more...] about This Mercedes 190D Camper For Sale on Craigslist May Be The Most Hipster Car in the World
The 1969 Dodge Charger is an iconic muscle car and its styling cues can still be seen in newer models such as the Challenger Hellcat. While the Challenger still looks pretty good after a decade on the market, it doesn’t hold a candle to the classic Charger. Bumbera Performance decided to fix that by combining the best of both worlds and creating the 1969 Charger Hellcat. Looking like it just rolled off the assembly line, the Charger has a stock appearance but a few clues hint at the power underneath the hood. Among the changes are a custom Magnaflow exhaust and upgraded brakes which hide behind five-spoke alloy wheels. While there’s no denying the exterior looks fantastic, much of the interior carryovers from a modern Dodge. As a result, the car has a lost some of its original charm. That’s unfortunate, but the Charger does have modern conveniences such as air conditioning, a push-button ignition and an infotainment system. Of course, the most notable change occurs … [Read more...] about 1969 Dodge Charger Hellcat Is A Restromod We Can All Get Behind
This 1970 Dodge Charger built by SpeedKore Performance was one of our favorite cars of the year when it came out of the Wisconsin shop in 2015.
