New cognac leather seats and all leather trim, new cognac (original style) velour carpeting installed, a Becker stereo system with Becker amplyfier, 8 disc changer, 4 MB Quart speaker, air-conditioning system with upgraded rotary compressor, door and body panel sound-deadening panels installed. Ellipsoid driving lights, Bosch fog light, 15 x7 inch Fuchsfelgen chrome plated with Michelin 225/60VR 15 tires. Stainless Steel exhaust.
This Coupe runs the quarter mile in 14.9 seconds. (easy adaptable for nitrous, since programmed into the computer - 1 or 2 stage)
MB's Erich Waxenberger, father of the 300SEL 6.3 sedan, drove the Coupe and commented "better than factory"!
This Benz is also documented in the Grand Mercedes Benz 600 book by Michael Wiedmaier and Wolf Knetch. A copy of the book with personal comments and photos of Erich Waxenberger go with this unique automobile.
