THE ERA

Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 "Red pig"
In the 1970s, the then tuning company AMG, named after its founders Hans Werner Aufrecht, Erhard Melcher and Aufrecht's birthplace Großaspach, was not yet a subsidiary and noble forge of Daimler AG. In 1970, Werner Aufrecht decided to build a race touring car capable of winning, the first ever in AMG's history, based on a Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 (model series: W 109). In addition to various chassis improvements and modifications to the body and interior, the engine was modified. Instead of the automatic transmission, a manual gearbox was used. The result was an impressive, beefy touring race car, equipped with a V8 cylinder with 6332 cm³, which soon received the nickname "Red Pig" in racing circles. The racing premiere took place at the 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps, where the AMG Mercedes-Benz caused quite a stir and sensationally took a class victory and 2nd place overall against strong competition. But the racing career in rallying lasted only a short time, the car slipped off the track a few weeks later in Hockenheim and was badly damaged. After reconstruction, it was used once again in the 24 Hours at the Nürburgring and then sold to the French armaments company Matra, where it was used for test drives in the development of aircraft tyres. There it was probably scrapped in the early 1990s.

THE RESTORATION
Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors presents the Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 "Rote Sau" as a first-class replica. From barn find to "Red Pig" - Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors brings the Mercedes-Benz classic car back to life.
From barn find to "Red Pig" - Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors brings the Mercedes-Benz classic back to life. Based on a Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL (model series W 109), the vehicle is equipped with all the technical and visual features of the original "Red Pig". With the installed V8 engine and a displacement of 6,332 cc, the racing touring car today easily achieves 250 hp (184 kW) and thus gives a real racing feeling. The racing touring car equipment from AMG adds the final touch to the vehicle. Thanks to our in-house restoration, any customer wishes can be implemented during the work. After completion of the restoration work, the vehicle presents itself in an impeccable and impressive condition that does not differ from the original.
