THIS MONTH

 

CLASSIC CHOICE: Showing the odd blemish, Jay Leno’s 300SL is not your usual Gullwing trailer queen.

 

TOP 10: Our favourite Naturally Aspirated Mercedes from the 1970s to 2000s, including the 6.9, E430 and more.
EVENTS: We borrow a stripped out Evolution II and join Mercedes-Benz Classic for its first Trackday of 2017.

 

YOUNGTIMER: This W124 Superdiesel packs a 450bhp, turbocharged six-cylinder oil burner in its nose.
TUNER CAR: With his Trasco 1000SEL, one owner demonstrates his love for big old Mercs and styling mods.

 

ROAD TEST: The C63 S Cabriolet is AMG’s first convertible C-Class and its 503bhp V8 biturbo leaves us spellbound.
STAR PROJECTS: Not content with restoring one 230SL Pagoda, this owner found another for his wife to drive. SPOTLIGHT: Sporting widened wings and special Italian wheels, this C36 AMG tears up the roads of Finland.

 

USED ROAD TEST: We sample the many pleasures of a six-cylinder powered W210 E280 with one owner from new.
