15. Mechatronik Mercedes M-Coupe
The Mercedes W111 Series coupes are some of the most stylish, elegant classic Gran Turismo models you can find. Graced with clear lines, impeccable build quality, comfortable interiors, and a legendary tri-pointed star on the grille, the W111 Coupe is an expensive collector car. But, as with all classic cars, the most demanding modern drivers find them unsafe, slow, and not dynamic enough.
If you’re one of those drivers who can’t imagine life without the W111 Coupe, but wants more out of a 50-year-old design, what should you do? The answer is simple. Just go to Germany to a company called Mechatronik Engineering in Pleidelsheim and ask them to build you a fully custom W111 Coupe. They’ll include a modern 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine, a modern suspension, and automatic climate control. They will also toss in an infotainment system and ABS, EBD, and BA electronic systems straight out of the 2017 Mercedes S-Class.
The price of this fantastic Restomod is close to half a million dollars. Although this is an enormous amount of money, it’s worth every penny. Now you can outrun your neighbor’s new Porsche in a 50-year-old Mercedes coupe.
