Na autoputu ablendaš novoj e klasi da ti se makne jer ti je 200kmh presporo :rotfl:

To je ono što sam si ja zapravo želio uvijek sa nekom stodvajstrojkom napraviti. Stara po dizajnu moderna po motorizaciji i svemu ostalom (osim po udobnosti) :)

On the move, the difference is staggering. Three engine generations younger, the new motor is far more powerful and torquey, moving this elegant coupe smartly and smoothly off the line and down the road at a pace that leaves most modern cars gasping for breath. Being lighter than the modern S-Class or even E-Class that use this engine, the Mechatronik Coupe is a very swift machine.
The modern five-speed gearbox is also much faster and more precise than the old mechanical four-speeder, and does not kick you in the back when you use the manual override to downshift.

The chassis upgrades comes into their own when you start to use the extra power, and the car feels very secure. The only downside is the rather slow-witted recirculating ball steering, which makes the car feel unwieldy when you ask for a quick change of direction.


Vjerujem da takav auto moze bez vecih problema povuc 200+ km/h


U nastavku donosim recenziju i jos fotki (valjda ne smeta . . . ):

At the end of the ’90s it became apparent that many people were getting bored with modern cars, which were all beginning to look and feel very much alike. To address the quest for individuality, manufacturers tend to go in one of two ways. Either they make groundbreaking futuristic designs that may or may not be liked, or play it safe and go down the retro route.
Most have gone the latter route with cars like the New Beetle, the PT Cruiser and the MINI, which take their inspiration from the past. However, there is a small band of people who prefer to drive real classic cars. Old cars not only look different from mainstream moderns, in the main they also provide a more direct, more involving driving experience. But there are significant problems for those who want to use a classic every day.


Old cars are fragile and require frequent maintenance. They were never designed to withstand the heavy stop-and-go traffic we have today, so their cooling systems tend to overheat, and points and plugs foul up regularly when subjected to such abuse. Carburetors and early fuel-injection systems use a lot more fuel, and are much less safe in an accident. These are all factors classic car owners have to accept.
However, there is a solution for those who genuinely want to run an older car daily, and it is a route that has been explored before by those who have the money to match their indulgence.


In the Mercedes-Benz realm, AMG once integrated modern mechanicals into a few classic 300SL Gullwing and roadsters for a special client. Now a German Mercedes specialist is doing the same thing for the evergreen Pagoda SL roadster and the 280SE Coupe.
The Mercedes-Benz W113 SL, popularly christened the Pagoda SL after its concave hardtop, was produced from 1963 to 1970, and remains popular among classic Mercedes buffs because it drives and handles much like a modern car. It also has fine build quality, a great image and spares are easily obtainable.

Using one on a daily basis is quite another thing though, so Mechatronik owner Frank Rickert set out to turn such a car into a totally painless driving experience.


Our bread and butter work is restoring classic Mercedes-Benz cars and preparing them for historic racing, he explains. But my background is with prototypes and one-offs, which I worked on a lot in the eight years I was in the development department of AMG. Making unique cars became a passion, and I had the idea of installing a modern engine and gearbox in the Pagoda SL to make it a sensible daily car for clients who asked the question.
Although the Pagoda SL is a relatively common classic, there is always the chance that the owner might want to convert it back to its original specification. Because of this, it was important that we carry out the work in such a way that nothing structural was altered and the conversion is totally reversible.


There was no need to perform any major surgery anyway, as the modern V6 is a compact and light unit that slots neatly into the space vacated by the big, iron block straight-six. Open the bonnet and you witness an installation so good in its execution that the contemporary Mercedes V6 looks factory installed since day one. Frank is a stickler for using only original parts wherever possible, and every bracket, nut, screw and hose comes from the Mercedes-Benz parts bin.
I drove a V6-engined Pagoda SL in 2005, but the car I have come to drive today is even more interesting because it has a modern version of the engine and gearbox it left the factory with in 1970. The W111 Coupe and Cabriolet, specifically the 280SE 3.5 with the 3.5-liter, 200hp motor, are incredibly desirable cars that fetch significant money in nice condition, and serious money if they are mint. If you do not open the bonnet, there is absolutely no clue to the fact that this is a Mechatronik New Tech car. The only giveaway for the sharp-eyed enthusiast who peers inside, is the gear lever gaiter with its 4 + D shift pattern.

When the bonnet is raised, the sight of the modern V8 with its plastic top cover is greeted with either raised eyebrows and acute interest, or extreme derision, depending on which school of thought you come from. I’m not a purist as far as cars made in large numbers are concerned, and as I would like to see more classic on the road, I admit to being a supporter of this cause as it has been done so well and so sympathetically.
Because the original car had a V8 to start with, the modern 24-valve motor happily sits in the engine bay, and did not require any special engine mounts to do so. If anything, the engine swap immediately points to a better handling car, as the modern all-alloy 306hp, 5-liter V8 is an incredible 150 pounds lighter than the old iron block V8. In fact, the alloy V8 is nearly 490 pounds lighter than the iron block straight-six in the SL Pagoda!

Where Mechatronik used to totally restore a Pagoda SL or 280SE Coupe and do the engine and gearbox transplant at the same time, they have now stopped doing this as the time and cost are simply too great.


The uprated springs and dampers are specially made for Mechatronik by KW Suspension, based near Stuttgart. These are stainless-steel-cased, dual-valve dampers with 16 separate settings for compression and rebound.
It is critical that we can set up every car just right for its owners needs and these dampers allow us to do this, Rickert says. They cost more, but in view of the value of these cars and the perfectionists that both we and our customers are, I feel that it is worth it.

Because the dampers have a great range of adjustment and their attachments to the cars are the same, the Pagoda and 280SE Coupe/Cabriolet share the same units, with just the spring rates varying for the different models.


Part of the upgrading program offered by Mechatronik includes grafting a partial modern CAN-BUS wiring harness into the car to operate the ABS and ESP systems if a client so wishes. This gives the now much faster classic Mercedes the same safety net as a contemporary car.
The driving experience was particularly telling as my memory of a perfectly tuned original 280SE 3.5 was still fresh in mind. The new motor starts up even more easily, its V8 firing pulses quieter and smoother.

Riding smoothly and comfortably on its tall aspect ratio rubber, the Mechatronik 280SE Coupe garners many admiring glances as I drive through the evening traffic around Ludwigsburg. Other road users respect and clearly love pristine old-timers like this, but no one remotely suspects that a young heart beats under its classic, square-rigged hood.


On the move, the difference is staggering. Three engine generations younger, the new motor is far more powerful and torquey, moving this elegant coupe smartly and smoothly off the line and down the road at a pace that leaves most modern cars gasping for breath. Being lighter than the modern S-Class or even E-Class that use this engine, the Mechatronik Coupe is a very swift machine.
The modern five-speed gearbox is also much faster and more precise than the old mechanical four-speeder, and does not kick you in the back when you use the manual override to downshift.

The chassis upgrades comes into their own when you start to use the extra power, and the car feels very secure. The only downside is the rather slow-witted recirculating ball steering, which makes the car feel unwieldy when you ask for a quick change of direction.


We can change that for a modern Mercedes rack-and-pinion system, said Frank. But if you go down that road, it is very hard to return the car to standard if you ever wanted to do so.
The 280SE 3.5 is one of my all-time favorite classic Mercedes, and I really enjoyed driving this updated example. In a world full of boring, mass produced cars, it is the perfect blend of classic styling coupled with the ease of modern mechanicals.

The only downside is the price tag. A complete restoration to concours condition, plus the mechanical transplant sees the asking price for this wonderful car soar to a whopping 260,000 euros. That is a lot to ask, even for perfection.

Who Is Mechatronik?
Frank Rickert knows a thing or two about missions impossible; he worked in AMG’s development department from 1988 to 1996 crafting prototypes and one-off or limited production cars for wealthy customers.

In that time, he watched the company grow from a staff of 100 to more than 550, and its partnership with Mercedes-Benz meant that mass production rather than custom-built cars became the order of the day.


I am only interested in special cars and in fulfilling the wishes of customers who want something unique, Rickert explains. When I saw the direction AMG was taking, I decided to leave and set up my own company. My first love is historic racing so I set out to restore post-war classic Mercedes-Benz cars and prepare historic racers. A smaller part of the business is undertaking commissions for clients who want special cars. If you wanted an S-Class estate, for instance, we could do that for you.

There are obviously a lot of potential clients who think like him. In the 11 years since this passionate 36-year-old car enthusiast started Mechatronik, he has had to move premises three times and increase his staff numbers to cope with the flood of work.
The funny thing is that I have never advertised and only ever had one or two magazine articles written about the company, he tells us. Our reputation has spread by word of mouth and all our work comes from happy customers who tell their friends.


The Mechatronik storerooms are a veritable Aladdin’s cave of classic Mercedes parts, and they actively look for parts all over the world. They have over 60,000 spare parts in stock now, including brand-new engines for the 190SL, 230SL and 280SL. The former were thought to be unobtainable, but I saw them there, along with a brand-new steering wheel for a 300SL Gullwing in its original box.
A lot has changed since my first visit in 2005. The company has expanded its premises by 100 percent, and divided operations into Classic, Engineering and Trade divisions.


Classic undertakes all the restoration work on classic cars, while Engineering prototypes and produces the New Tech cars, classic Mercedes with modern engines, for which Mechatronik is famous. Finally, Trade buys and sells cars, and recently acquired the famous, record breaking, one-off Fulda Maybach Exelero Coupe.
Interestingly, Mechatronik’s New Tech cars have not been successful in Germany. German classic car enthusiasts are purists and we only ever sold one car in our home market, Rickert says. All our customers are from other countries like Japan, Korea, Indonesia, South Africa and even Israel. In fact, one good client in South Africa has five New Tech cars, including an SL Pagoda with an M113 E43 4,266cc V8.

Google translate daje neki uvid o cem se radi. Skuzi se kaj je pjesnik htel reci, al na dost nerazumljiv nacin. Pocel sam prevodit sad kak spada, pa kak bum kaj prevel, postam ovde.

Evo ga, gotovo:

Pred kraj devedesetih, postalo je ocito da su mnogim ljudima dosadili moderni automobili, koji su postojali sve slicniji jedni drugima. Da bi zadovoljili induvidualnost, proizvodaci imaju na raspolaganju 2 smjera. Napraviti revolucionarni futuristicki dizajn koji se mozda i nece svim svidjeti, ili igrati na sigurno i napraviti retro dizajn. Vecina je otisla u retro koracima, nova Buba, PT Cruiser, MINI i drugi. No jos uvijek ima ljudi koji preferiraju voziti klasicne automobile. Stariji automobili ne samo da izgledaju drugacije od trenutnih modernih automobila, nego i pruzaju neposredno veci uzitak voznje. No postoje znacajni problemi kod koristenja klasicnih automobila na dnevnoj bazi.

Stari automobili su krhki i zahtjevaju redovito odrzavanje. Nisu dizajnirani da izdrze tezak stop-start promet danasnjice, te se cesto pregrijavaju, a konektori i instalacije odlaze redovite nekon takvog „zlostavljanja“. Rasplinjaci i raniji sistemi direktnog ubrizgavanja goriva trose vise, i mnogo su nesigurniji kod nesreca. To su cinjenice koje vozaci klasicnih automobila moraju prihvatiti.
No, postoji i rjesenje za one koji zbilja zele voziti stariji auto na dnevnoj bazi, put koji su mnogi otkrili vec i prije i koji su utrosili velik novac da zadovolje te potrebe.

U Mercedes-Benz zbilji, AMG je nekada integrirao modernu mehaniku u nekoliko klasicnih 300SL Gullwing-a i roadster-a za specijane klijente. Sada njemacki Mercedes specijalist radi istu stvar za Pagoda SL roadster i 280SE coupe.
Mercedes-Benz w113, popularno krsten Pagoda SL nakon konkavnog cvrstog krova, je bio u proizvodnji od 1963 do 1970, i ostaje među popularnijim vozilima kod vozaca Mercedesa jer se na cesti ponasa kao moderno vozilo. Takoder je kvalitetno napravljen i velik dio rezervnih dijelova je lagano nabavljiv.

No koristenje jednog takvog vozila na dnevnoj bazi je druga stvar, pa je vlasnik Mechatronik-a, Frank Rickert, krenuo u potragu za rjesenjem koje bi takvo iskustvo ucinili sto manje bezbolnim.

Ono sto mi radimo je da restauriramo klasicne Mercedes-Benz automobile te ih pripremamo za povijesne utrke, objasnjava vlasnik. No moje radno iskustvo se temelji na prototipovima i unikatnim vozilima, na kojima sam mnogo radio tijekom 8 godina u razvojnom odijelu AMG-a. Izrada unikatnih automobila mi je postala strast, i imao sam ideju o modernom motoru i mjenjacu u Pagoda SL-u da napravim auto za koristenje na dnevnij bazi za klijente koji su to zeljeli.
Iako je Pagoda SL relativno cest klasicni auto, postoji uvijek mogucnist da ga vlasnik zeli vratiti u prvobitno stanje. Zbog toga nam je bilo bitno da napravimo tu preobrazbu na takav nacin da strukturalno nista ne promjenimo i da je preobrazba u potpunosti obratljiva.

No nije bilo ni potrebno raditi neke velike zahvate, danasnji V6 je kompaktan i lagan te veoma lagano i zgodni sijeda u prostor u kojem je nekad bio celicni blok rednog sestaka. Otvorite haubu i svjedocite da je motor postavljen na takav nacin da izgleda kao da je takav izlazio iz tvornice od prvog dana. Frank je cjepidlaka za koristenje sto vise orginalnih dijelova, gdje god moguce, tako da svaki seraf, crijevo, matica dolazi iz Mercedes-Benz kosare.
Vozio sam Pagoda SL-a sa V6 motorom 2005. Godine, ali auto koji vozim danas je vise interesantniji jer ima modernu verziju motora i mjenjaca s kojim je izlazio iz tvornice 1970. W111 coupe i kabriolet, posebno 280SE 3.5 sa 3.5 litrenim, 200 konja motorom je veoma pozeljan jer donosi mnogo novca ako je u dobrom stanju, i jos vise novca ako je u izvornom stanju. Ako ne otvarate haubu, nemate uopce dojam da je ovo Mechatronic vozilo. Jedina naznaka toma za one ostrovidne je rucica mjenjaca sa svojim 4+D rasporedom.


Kad se digne hauba, moderan V8 sa svojim plasticnim poklopcem vas srdacno pozdravlja sa podignutim obrvama i ostrim pogledom, ili extremnim ismijavanjem, ovisno o tome iz koje skole razmisljanja dolazite. Nisam purist glede veliko serijske proizvodnje automobila i kako bi zelio vidjeti sto vise klasnicnih automobila na cesti, pobornik sam ove ideje zato sto je posao napravljen tako dobro.
Posto je orginalan auto imao V8 na pocetku, moderni motor sa 24 ventila sjeda veselo u motorni prostor, i nije bilo potrebno izradivati nikakve posebne nosace. Ako bilo sto, promjena motora je znacila instantno poboljsanje handlinga, jer moderni V8 5-litreni motor sa 306 konjaje laksi za nevjerojatnih 150 pounda (70kg) od starog V8 sa celicnim blokom. Novi je V8 zapravo skoro 490 pounds-a (220 kg) laksi od celicnog bloka rednog sestaka u SL Pagodi.

Nekad je Mechatronic totalno restaurirao Pagoda SL ili 280SE coupe i mjenjao motor i mjenjac u isto vrijeme, no prestali su to raditi jer su troskovi preveliki.

Pojacani amortizeri i opruge su specijalno napravljeni za Mechatronic od KW Suspension, koji su bazirani blizu Stuttgard-a. To su amortizeri u kucistu od nehrdajuceg celika sa dvostrukim ventilima sa 16 induvidualnih postavki za kompresiju i odbijanje.
Kriticno je da namjestimo automobil prema zeljama vlasnika i ti nam amortizeri to i omogucuju. Kostaju puno vise, no kad se pogleda cjelokupni automobil i perfekcionizam nas i vlasnika vozila, imam osjecaj da vrijede tih novaca.

Amortizeti imaju veliki raspon postavki, pa Pagoda i 280Sl dijeliju iste jedinice, samo se postavke namjestavaju prema raznim modelima.

Nadogradnja automobila takoder ukljucuje i djelomicnu ugradnju CAN-BUS ozicenja u auto za upravljanje sa ABS-om i ESP sistemima ako tako zeli klijent. Ovo daje sada vec mnogo brzem klasicnom automobilu iste sigurnosne znacajke kao i danasnja vozila.
Osjecaj u voznji je bio poprilicno snazan, kako je moje sjecanje o savrseno tuniranom orginalu 280SE 3.5 bilo jos svjeze. Novi motor starta jos lakse, tih je i ima gladak rad.

Vozeci se udobno i glatko na njegovim visokim gumama, Mechatronic 280SE coupe dobiva mnogo pogleda divljenja prema vozilu kako se vozimo u vecernjom prometu ono Ludwigsburga. Drugi vozaci cijene i ocito vole ocuvane old-timere kao ovaj, no nitko zapravo i ne sumnja sto kuca ispod haube.

U pokretu, razlika je zapanjujuca. Tri generacije mlađi motor je jaci i ima vise okretnog momenta, pokrecuci ovaj elegantni coupe pametno i glatko sa linije, te na cesti ostavlja mnoge moderne automobile bez daha. Posto je laksi od moderne S klase, ili cak i E klase koje koriste ovaj motor, Mechatronik coupe je veoma brz i okretan auto.
Moderna 5-stupanjska getriba je takoder mnogo brza i vise precizna nego stara 4-brzinska, te kad manualno mjenjate brzine nemate osjecaj da vas udara u leda.

Sasija je pojacana u skaldu sa jacinom motora, i auto se osjeca veoma siguran na cesti. Jedini nedostatak je upravljac, relativno spor i tupoglav, nezgrapan je prilikom brzih promjena smjera voznje.

Frank govori da mogu promjeniti upravljacki sistem sa modernijim, no to bi znacilo da nakog te modifikacije nebi vise bilo moguce dovesti auto u orginalno stanje.
280SE 3.5 je jedan od meni najdrazih klasicnih Mercedesa, i zbilja sam uzivao vozeci taj auto. U svijetu sa dosadnim, masovno proizvedenim automobilima, ovo je savrsen spoj klasicnog dizajna sa modernom mehanikom.

Jedini je jedostatak cijena. Kompletna restauracija, plus mehanika dode 260 000 eura. To je puno, cak i za perfekciju.

Tko je Mechatronic?

Frank Richer zna ponesto o misiji nemoguce, radio je u razvojnom odijelu AMG-a od 1988 do 1996 razvijajuci prototipe i unikatne automobile za bogate kupce.

U to vrijeme, gledao je kako kompanija raste od 100 zaposlenika, do vise od 550, i partnerstvo sa Mercedesom je znacilo da AMG ide vise u smjeru masovne proizvodnje, negu proizvodnje unikata.

Ja sam samo zainteresiran u specijalne automobile i u ostarivanje zelja kupaca koji zele nesto unikatno, govori Frank. Kad sam vidio u kojem smjeru ide AMG, odlucio sam otici i osnovati vlastitu kompaniju. Moja je prva ljubav bila povijesne utrke, i zato sam prenuo u restauraciju poslije ratnih klasicnih Mercedes vozila i poceo pripremati povijesne utrke. Mani dio posla je restaruracija automobila za klijente koji zele specijalne aute. Ako ste zeljeli, na primjer, S klasu karavana, mogli smo to uciniti za vas.

Ocito je da postoji puno potencijalnih klijenata koji razmisljaju kao on. U njegovih 11 godina rada u Mechatronicu morao se seliti 3 puta i povecati broj zaposlenika kako bi mogao zadovoljiti zahtjeve kupaca.
Zanimljiva stvar je da se nikad nismo reklamirali, i imalo smo mozda samo 2 clanka u casopisima o kompaniji. Nasa se reputacija siri usmenom predajom, i sav nas posao dolazi od kupaca koji nas preporucuju svojm prijateljima.

Prostor Mechatronic ducana je stvarna Aladinova spilja klasicnih Mercedes dijelova, i oni i dalje aktivno traze dijelove po cijelom svijetu. Imaju vise od 60 000 rezervnih dijelova na raspolaganju, ukljucujuci potpuno nove motore za 190SL, 230SL i 280SL. Mislilo se za njih da ih je nemoguce nabaviti, no videni su u tvornici, zajedno sa potpuno novim volanom za 300SL Gullwing u orginalnoj kutiji.
Puno se promjenilo nakon mojeg posjeta u 2005. Kompanija je 100 postotno prosirila prostore, i podijelila operacije na Klasicne, Mehanicke i Razmjenu.

U Klasnicni operacijama se dogada sva restauracija vozila, dok u Mehanickim razvijaju prototipove u proizvode klasicne automobile sa modernom tehnologijom, po kojoj je Mechatronic i najpoznatiji. Naposlijetku u Razmjeni se kupuju i prodaju vozila, i nedavno je kupljen slavan unikatni primjer Fulda Maybach Exelero Coupe.
Zanimljivo je da klasicni auti sa modernom tehnologijom nisu tolko uspjesni u Njemackoj. Njemacki auto entuzijasti su puristi i prodali su samo jedno takvo vozilo na domacem trzistu. Svi nasu kupci su iz drugih zemalja, kao npr Japan, Korea, Indonezija, Juzna Afrika, cak i Izrael. Zapravo, jedan nas kupac ima 5 takvih vozila u Juznoj Africi, ukljucujici i SL Pagodu sa M113 E43 4,266cc V8 motorom.
