    MERCI w198 racecar *road legal*

    hello to all Members


    we like to intodruce us to this great forum and itś members. at first, sorry for the bad english...we dont have to speak ( or write ) it very often ( unfortunately ) !!!

    so....we are located in austria & build rare vintage race cars or proprietary developments. this happens mainly in our free time, so the progress will be very slow.
    First car to hit the streets & racetracks will be a merc w198 recreation, road legal because the hobby is too expensive to just use it as a trackday car.
    Other models will follow, possible variations of the w198 as well as a new style of a streamliner referring to the BMW328.........so on

    so lets start with some appetisers

    That body looks very nice. Was it molded from an original? Also, I like the way your shop is built. It too looks very nice.

    As far as your English is concerned, I wouldn't lose any sleep over that. Hang around here long enough and you'll find quite a few others here haven't quite got it mastered either. And that even includes the ones who claim it as a native tongue.

    Sounds great! Do you have a website? I'd like to see more of your work.

    If you really want to hear some interesting 'English', you should come to Mississippi where I live. It's fairly entertaining listening to some people around here talk.

    ...its a shame, too few german or austrian people speak english (very well) because of our deficient education systems...!?

    Welcome!!
    Nice body you have there!! One of my favorite styles for sure. Do you have a plan for the chassis/engine/suspension yet?

    "satinta"....plan for chassis.....sure, it simply get the whole technology from merc slk 320 r170 !!!
    ....BMW Z3 is also possible, but i only like to label it an merc, when everything is merc.
    ...merc slk / Z3 is nearly the same wheelbase & the original *gullwing* too

    ...so this means you can mount an normal slk320 or an slk320AMG ( for power reasons )

    hope this helps
