Crazy Train: 2008 Mercedes-Benz WTF

Some people collect stamps…and others collect celebrity autographs, but if you enjoy a special collection cease and desist letters (or restraining orders)– this next car might bag you a few from Mercedes-Benz corporate offices. It is described by the seller as a “Mercedes-Benz AMG C8 GTR” and it appears to be home-brew metal frame construction with a plastic body and a classic iron small block Chevy V8. Find this 2008 Mercedes-Benz WTF offered for $75000 in Chicago, IL via craigslist.

2011 Mercedes-Benz AMG C8 GTR streetable / legal, road race car with thoughts of running the LeMans, Sauber, Autobahn. This concept is inspired by the C8, C9, C11, Mercedes Benz road race cars. It starts right up with these, has all the features of the modern cars, horn, heat, wiper, lights all functional. It steers with ease, all the wait is in the rear the car. This car is about 6 to 8 inches wider than your average car which makes it very easy to handle around the terns. It has independent suspension all the way around a V8 SBC 350 engine mated to a heavy-duty 6 rib 4 speed transmission with four wheel disc breaks, It has Gold Wing doors a Full Tilt rear body For accessing the engine compartment. A hood that opens in front to access the master cylinder and the aluminum radiator this is a one-off build both Frame and Body as you can see in the picture’s. I am 5.9 tall 250lbs so I would say it fits a big guy if needed with room to spare. It has some real nice auto meter gauges fitted into carbon fiber panels with a carbon fiber steering wheel and shifter knob to match. A nice up-to-date stereo that you can play music off your phone if you like, with a 3-point roll bar behind the seats also the seats are custom made black outer with alligator in the center diamond plated it has nerf bars on the rear with a fairly quiet exhaust system. I would say this car draws more attention than any car I have ever owned and I’ve had my share of wicked rides. This build is quite a few steps above average the picture show almost everything this car runs on pump gas 89 to 93 otc.
