Frankenbenz Update

We first shared Piper Motorsport‘s amazing Frankenbenz project in 2015. The project’s lofty goal was wrap a Mercedes 190E body around a C63 AMG chassis. Thus giving the classic sedan AMG’s amazing 6.2 L M156 V8, SpeedShift seven-speed transmission, suspension, brakes, and electronics. The company recently installed a supercharger, finished body/paint and is working on final assembly. Hopefully we see it driving very soon.

  1. Is it supercharged? Since on picture 2 and 3 there is something that looks very similar to a supercharger, and as far as I remember M156 didn’t come with a supercharger from the factory.
