The Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 3.5 was a luxury car built by Mercedes Benz from 1968 to 1972. It featured the company’s powerful 3.5-litre straight six. The result was a nearly 2-tonne saloon with performance similar to most dedicated sports cars and American muscle cars of the era. At the time of its release, it was the world’s fastest four door car. AMG, now the sports tuning subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz, but then a small local tuning company founded by former Mercedes engineers, produced special versions of the 3.5 to compete in racing events, usually with the engine enlarged to 3.5 litres or more. The car had an impressive, but short-lived racing career, due to the lack of suitable tires, or rule changes preventing the use of them. AMG’s so-called “Red pig” finished 2nd in the 24 Hours of Spa in 1971. This heavy vehicle with 3500 cc and 200 HP was fast, but frequent refueling was necessary, and tire wear was also high. The car was sold to French company Matra, they used it for tests of jet fighter landing gear. Five were made, three racers and two test cars. Last original works-built Waxenberger 69 “red pig” is in Mobilia Automotive Museum, Finland.
