Mercedes E190 Matted to AMG C63 chassis

eanut butter and chocolate. Tequila and lime. Big engines in small cars. There are some combinations that seem preordained to please, and this incredible build featuring the boxy body from a mid-Eighties Mercedes-Benz 190E, the chassis and powertrain from a modern C63 AMG sedan, and the spirit of Mercedes' iconic Evolution models is everything we didn't know we wanted.

This is no mere engine swap, a task that's tricky enough when you're talking about a hand-built, expensive AMG V-8. No, the work of taking the complete running gear of one car and slipping it into the body of another without changing the character of either is so involved it truly lives up to the name Piper Motorsport gave its creation: the Frankenstein Benz.
