If the ‘90s model wasn’t already boxy enough for you, this Mercedes 3.2-24V AMG WB should rectify the situation. When AMG officially joined with Mercedes-Benz in 1999, typical performance enhancements on offer included increased engine displacements, performance top ends with port and polished heads and intake and lightened valve train. All of those options aside, perhaps the most popular upgrade was the AMG body kit.
AMG body kits ranged from subtle spoilers to aggressive wide body kits for coupes as displayed with attitude by this Mercedes 3.2-24V AMG WB. This example features iconic wide body arches as well as blue/black metallic paint in perfect order with a deep and glossy shine, lending the machine a menacing aesthetic.
Onto the bit you’ve all been waiting for: under the bonnet. Powering this monster is an enlarged 3.4L engine. Technically a 3310cc, the cylinders were over-bored by 3mm and the crank from the M603 engine used to increase the stroke. Along with other alterations, the bhp of this 3.2-324V was raised to 270.
After spent most of its life in Japan, this Mercedes is ready for a stylish return to Europe.
