You Could Own This Stunning Replica Of The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 ‘Red Pig’

When Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach (AMG) was founded back in 1967, it was little more than a local tuning outfit run by ex-Mercedes-Benz employees Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher. Nevertheless, the pair had spent a number of years developing race-ready engines at their former employer and decided that they wanted to campaign a vehicle of the own. The result? A 300 SEL 6.3 named the “Red Pig” that took first in its class and second overall at the 1970 24 Hours of Spa.

If you were hoping to add the original to your collection, don’t hold your breath — it was scrapped in the early 90s. However, this recreation by Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors makes for the next best thing. Based on a classic Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL, it comes with all of the fixings befitting of the real Red Pig, from the livery down to the fog lights. Inside, it’s been fitted authentic AMG touring car racing gear, including a rear roll-cage, a fire extinguisher, as well as some Sparco bucket seats. And when you pop the hood you’ll find a 6.3L V8 good for 250hp and 369lb-ft of torque — the exact specs of its 70s forbear. Head over to the link below to make it yours.
