Mercedes 190 RM1 V8
With Carlsson’s SLK 340 race car due to hit the mountains next year, Swiss team Meisel Motorsport, who are handling the project, took their awesome Mercedes 190 RM1 V8 to the La Berra-La Roche hill climb event in Switzerland to show that it hasn’t lost any of its bite after almost ten years of use.

The 190, which was the fastest in its class on both days with team leader and driver Reto Meisel at the wheel, is propelled by a 3.4-litre V8 Judd Formula 1 engine, tuned to develop an impressive 455 kW (610 hp) and 430 Nm of torque. This powerplant will see service in the SLK, which tips the scales at just 780 kg and will compete in national and international hill climb races in the E1 category.
