There is certainly something about the early pre-merger Mercedes-Benz AMG cars, even if they were converted after the final assembly and they left the factory. Today’s car, a very rare 1993 600SEL, was done by AMG Japan with an increase in displacement to 7.0 liters, some special bodywork, 18″ O.Z. wheels, and the signature wood trim as many places they could find. Even better, this car was optioned with the individual reclining rear seats that of course are heated too. How much? Well, they aren’t getting any cheaper.
If you are feeling dÃ©jÃ vu, you are on to something. Last month I checked out a 1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 7.0 AMG and now a month later, we have the brother 1998 CL600 7.0 AMG. It is probably safe to assume these both came out of the same collection, and believe it or not, this one checks in with over 100,000 kilometers on the odometer. Long live the M120!

If some is good, more is better. A lot of times that is true, sometimes it is not. Thankfully, that saying applies when talking about V12 Mercedes-Benz. One of the most common modifications to the M120 V12 is taking that 6.0 liter and increasing the displacement to a 7.0, 7.2, 7.3 or even crazier 7.4. AMG was known to do this in small batches as well as other aftermarket tuners. One of those aftermarket tuners was Renntech. They would pump these up to 7.0 liters as well as modify other things like camshafts and surrounding parts. The result was somewhere over 500 horsepower and a price tag to make anyone do a double take. Today, we have a one of those 7.0 liter conversions up for sale in Kentucky in this 1994 SL. Even better, there are some AMG goodies on this car as well.

Last week I featured a Mercedes with a giant V12.Â Today’s car is no different â€” although with a little more factory flavor. This 1998 S70 AMG hails from Norway in case you even needed to outrunÂ a herd of reindeer. But in all seriousness, this W140 is a rare breed. It was,Â in typical S-Class fashion, a money is no object car. More importantly, this car continued its life like a money is no object car. So let’s take a better look at this world traveler S70 AMG.
