True or True: The Red Pig Is One of the Best Car Nicknames Ever
The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.8 is called the “The Red Pig” for a reason.
In other areas of the world, they would call it a car show, but here in Monaco? Just a gathering of yachts.
This W211 E55 AMG has some bolt-ons, but the Cobra is equipped with a Whipple supercharger and a bit more aggressive drag slicks than the Benz.
Tobias Moers, AMG’s CEO, has stated there is no room for an AMG hypercar at the moment, or in the near future.
The Brabus G800 uses a twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces a staggering 800 horsepower and 740-plus lb-ft of torque. It’s an absolute monster, and nothing beats watching this monster take on supercar after supercar at the drag strip.
