A powerhouse of ideas for individuals
Vehicles from Mercedes-Benz had and have a charm all their own,
and are instantly recognisable. At Mechatronik Engineering, this particular
flair of classic car styling is modified to suit the owner’s wishes and
requirements and, where required, combined with modern automotive
technology. Accordingly, every one of our converted vehicles expresses
the unique personality of its owner.

Classic meets contemporary
Redefining the limits of technology
Increasing numbers of classic car enthusiasts are entertaining novel ideas
and seeking the perfect combination of original look and feel with day-today technical capabilities. We call our redefined Mercedes-Benz classic cars
the Mechatronik SL (M-SL) or Mechatronik Coupé (MCoupé), and they offer
very special levels of driving pleasure and safety, plus individual comfort,
specifically for the W111 and W113 Mercedes-Benz series.
One of our mechanics’ special areas of expertise is prototype and
racing car engineering. Here, we work closely with our customers to assess
their personal ideas and requirements before implementing them in
painstaking detail. The result: one-of-a-kind vehicles.
Modern Mercedes-Benz V6 and V8 engines plus corresponding 5-speed
automatic gearbox guarantee a truly unmatched driving experience.
A customised braking system featuring ABS and ASR ensures drivers can
handle the extra engine power while a custom suspension developed by
Mechatronik Engineering ensures truly unique vehicle handling. Externally,
no-one would suspect that the converted Mercedes-Benz offers the power
and safety features offered by modern automotive technology.
And one rule we never break: the systems are modified to fit the chassis
– not the other way around. Accordingly, all of the custom work we do can
be reversed if desired.
Our customers’ ideas and the practical implementation by our shop
are limited solely by the time and money available. As one example: for
an Asian customer, we made technical modifications to a W100 so that it
would be capable of housing a modern 5.5-litre supercharged V8 engine
with all of the necessary components. A conversion that made almost
exclusive use of original Mercedes-Benz parts.
Our specialists also cater to unusual customer requirements when
converting series models to racing car vehicles. Their challenge: how
can these vehicles be given a superstructure to match original models
so that they not only comply with FIA regulations – thus enabling them
to qualify for participation in historical motorsport events – but also
satisfy our customers’ requirements?
