What if we told you that one of the world’s hottest hatches comes from Mercedes? A team of Mercedes-Benz apprentices from Germany created a project that is a little more special that what we’re used to, as autocar reports. We’ll start by telling you that we are talking about a
vehicle that mixes the B-Class with a V8 engine.

The trainees took a B200 CDI, threw away the oil-burner under the hood and replaced it with a 5.5 liter V8 powerplant. Unfortunately we are not talking about AMG’s new turbocharged 5.5 liter V8, but about the naturally aspirated M273 unit - However, we’re not complaining, as the engine delivers 383 hp and a maximum torque of 530 Nm.

Ok, so the B got a badass heart, but now the rest of the vehicle has to be adapted in order to cope with the EXTRA power. Of course, the engine needed a transmission, so a seven-speed G-Tronic was added.

All that power and torque would’ve been too much for the front wheels (some tuners might disagree with this), so the vehicle a received rear-wheel drive system that uses an axle for an old E430 Estate.

And the list of performance parts belonging to out-of production Mercs continues with a braking system form a C32 AMG, which means that the V8 B-Klasse uses 345 mm rotors at the front and 300mm rotors at the back. The car rides on 18-inch rims that use 235/40 (front) and 255/35 (rear) tires.

And we haven’t even gotten to the fun part yet: the vehicle, which only needs between 5 and 6 seconds to hit 62 mph, doesn’t come with an electronic nanny (yes, no traction control or stability program).

Isto sim, eu considero uma disciplina digna de estudo :)

o mais engraçado é que, segundo o que li numa publicação nacional, os engenheiros da AMG diziam que o motor não cabia lá ;)

Se um V8 cabe num Mini, porque não há-de caber ali?

A necessidade (neste caso de afirmação e de realização pessoal) aguça o engenho.

mas também ambos sabemos que há V8's e V8's ;)
acho que o mais interessante neste projecto é a lista de componentes que este veiculo utiliza e sobretudo a parte divertida, nada de controlo de tracção ou de estabilidade :nice:
