How cool is this old colourised photo. Apparently this was a magazine cover which showcased cars built by the Ayala Brothers in California. If you want to read more about them, click here to head over to Rik’s very detailed spotlight post on the H.A.M.B.
A lot of attention at SEMA seems to be directed at this very interesting SL Merc, and rightly so. A modern SL600 mated with an oldschool 190SL, meticulously grafted together by Hot Rods & Custom Stuff. A quick Google search of their business name brought me to their website, and like most of the top builders in the US, they have dedicated galleries for each of their projects, so head on down to the bottom of the post to find the link.
Heres’s something exotic for a change. The Mercedes CLK 63 Black Series was based on the F1 Safety Car, it’s powered by an AMG 6.3-litre V8 pushing out 373 kw. For most people that would be more than enough, but stock cars are boring and we are modifiers so we have to mess with everything, and even a top of the range Merc can’t escape.
