W124-7.3-v12

I had no idea that it is possible to fit V12 into W124! Has anyone actually seen one like this?


7.3 liter engine, 530 horse power, 4 sec. - 0-100 km/h !

I've seen plenty of W124's with those kind of swaps. The 7.3L engine is also VERY rare to come across by...Mercedes Benz AMG only made a total of roughly 300 7.3L built engines. lol ...its rare to see a SL73 these days haha

That is a Brabus tuned M120 V12. You can tell by the red cam covers and black painted intake manifold.

I'm a little bit confused as well as to what point he's trying to make, but all I know that he definitely doesn't have a 7.3L nor a C36 motor.

A C36 sway would be nice in a W124 but you might as well just get a 500E.

Hey Guys,
I spoke to a guy a couple of weeks ago who rolls in the crowd that can afford these type of cars with the conversions. A point he did mention was that there are a lot of bugs that need to be worked out of doing mods like this. Most of these cars can't be enjoyed for quite some time because they are in shop getting fixed and problems worked out.......
But it sure would be FUN when you do get to drive it........
