Mercedes B55 using big V8 and little B-Class

Mercedes b55

A handful of trainees at the Mercedes plant found that the big engine, small car combo would be the easiest way to mint cheap speed. Peter Wesp, the plant manager squeezed a 5.5-liter 385 horsepower V8 from the likes of the big E550 into the Silver Arrow's trim B-Class.

Wesp and his team set about the mechanical contortions necessary to pull off the swap. Surprisingly enough, the workers were able to use the original engine mounts, and with a little parts-bin raiding, everything was sitting pretty under the hood. The team snugged in a rear axle from a W 2010 E-Class, front brakes lifted from a C32 AMG and bolted on snazzy 18-inch wheels from AMG as well.
