Originally campaigned on the circuit where it competed in numerous endurance races including the 24 hours of Spa in 1985 and 1986, this historic competition car was then modified by Snobeck, the official Mercedes-Benz rally team to compete in the Tour Auto with Didier Auriol at the wheel where the car finished 2nd overall and was also campaigned in various rallies across France.
Under the bonnet is a Snobeck group A engine which produces 285bhp at 6850 rpm putting power through a Mercedes-Benz Getrag Group A gearbox. An original AMG individual throttle body with carbon airbox and stainless exhaust system is fitted.
Brakes are Group A braking system with 16” discs up front and progressive rear brake bias and a fly off hydraulic handbrake.
The car sits on PLS aluminium rims wi
