    • Old school W126 500 SEC S-Class Coupe with Twin Turbo GM LQ V8 power borrowed from a Hummer to make 916 hp and 1075 torque

      Well, this is simply insane and the kind of thing BenzBoost absolutely loves. Take a classic W126 generation 500 SEC, take out the motor, grab an LQ series V8 from a Hummer, and give it two big Holset HX40 turbos. The result? A 916 horsepower and 1075 lb-ft of torque insane tire smoking drift machine. This car comes from Finland which should surprise nobody as it seems the Scandinavians just like to take German machinery and give it as much boost as they possible can.


      The interior was stripped out and a roll cage added:






      GM V8 power with two big turbos added under the hood along with a transmission to handle the torque:








      Here's a video of the result, absolutely awesome:

        Well not quite that radical. This is the W126 shell and it definitely has been extensively modified. It's just cool and it is what it is.
