Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 by Vath

German model, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 might receive a restoration program from aftermarket specialists VATH Motorentechnik Company. Under the hood, the rare model features a M100 V8-engine with 6.332 cm3 engine displacement capable of developing 250 PS and 510 Nm of torque. With this amount of power, the vehicle is enabled to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 220 km/h. The entire engine and the axles were completely overhauled and the engine compartment was restored. The German 300 SEL 6.3 was manufactured starting 1968 until 1972. The tuning specialists can renew all the extensive parts like, complete engines, parts of the engine, differentials, drive shafts, fuel injection systems, gearboxes, control equipment and also exhaust system. The three steps in the general overhaul and repair in case of an engine block are disassembly, cleaning and inspection.

First the engine block is milled and then the cylinders are drilled and honed. The engineers then smoothen, polish and balance the crankshaft. This mechanism is made less heavy. The oversize pistons and the normal ones are specially made and tailored. The 300 SEL 6.3 will also get renewed chains, seals, connecting rod bearings and crankshafts. Only if necessary, the carmaker gets improved oil and water pump. Generally speaking, when it comes to classic cars, the engine or parts of the engine are completely or partially overhauled.

At the end of the process, the procedure is finished with computer diagnostics. VATH Motorentechnik is capable of doing everything alone so that the rare Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 can get the center of attention. The repair of all units, inspections and maintenance, but also the emission control testing and complete testing are nothing when it comes to the VATH engineers.
