To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 5 February 2020. Estimate:150,000 - 200,000 A faithful re-creation of Mercedes-Benz and AMGs iconic Red PigRestored by Mercedes-Benz specialist Arthur BechtelLess than 800 km since conversion Arguably AMGs most iconic vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL Red Pig jump-started the small companys rise to fame, leading to Mercedes-Benzs eventual takeover of the tuning house roughly twenty years ago.Modified at a customers request, AMG started with a damaged 300 SEL and turned it into an all-out racing machine. Boring the engine out to 6.8 litres, which produced 420 bhp, AMG fitted aluminium doors, widened the track, fitted larger tyres, and flared the wheel arches. Due to its ungainly proportions and red paintwork, the car was quickly nicknamed the Red Pig, but soon enough the car proved itself in the crucible of motorsport. At the 1971 24 Hours of Spa, the car won its class and finished 2nd overall, having started 5th on the grid. While the original Red Pig was eventually used in aircraft testing leading to its destruction, a handful of faithful replicas have been built, including one by Mercedes-Benz. This example started as an accident-free, 1969 model year 300 SEL 6.3 and was restored to a Red Pig replica by the Mercedes-Benz specialists at Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors in Böblingen, Germany. Purchased by James Goo Kim, CEO of D.Parts of South Korea, directly from Arthur Bechtel, it has travelled less than 800 km since its conversion.Re-création fidèle de l'emblématique Mercedes AMG 'Red Pig'Restaurée par le spécialiste Mercedes Arthur BechtelMoins de 800 km depuis sa conversionLa Mercedes 300 SEL 'Red Pig', sans aucun doute la voiture la plus emblématique de celles réalisées par AMG, a largement contribué à faire connaître cette petite entreprise de préparation, amenant Mercedes à s'y intéresser au point d'en faire l'acquisition il y a une vingtaine d'années.Pour réaliser cette voiture à la demande d'un client, AMG est parti d'une 300 SEL endommagée et l'a transformée en machine de compétition radicale. En plus d'un moteur réalésé à 6,8 litres et développant 420 ch, AMG a équipé la voiture de portes en aluminium, a élargi la voie et l'a dotée de pneus plus larges et d'extensions d'ailes. A cause de ses proportions peu flatteuses et de sa couleur rouge, elle a été rapidement surnommée 'Red Pig', ce qui ne l'a pas empêchée de se montrer très compétitive. Lors des 24 Heures de Spa 1971, elle a remporté sa catégorie et terminé deuxième au classement général, après avoir pris le départ de la cinquième place sur la grille.Alors que la 'Red Pig' d'origine a été ensuite utilisée pour tester des équipement d'avion, ce qui a mené à sa destruction, plusieurs répliques ont vu le jour, dont une réalisée par Mercedes-Benz. Cet exemplaire a pris comme base une 300 SEL 6.3 de 1969 non accidentée, puis a été restauré sous la forme d'une réplique 'Red Pig' par le spécialiste Mercedes Arthur Bechtel Classic Motors, à Böblingen, en Allemagne. Achetée directement à Arthur Bechtel par James Kim, directeur général de D.Parts, en Corée du Sud, elle a parcouru moins de 800 km depuis sa conversion.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pa20.
