Here are some of the specs for the "Bent"

“Mercedes-Bent” is the brain child of owner Richard Mott.  What began as two distinct vehicles  has become a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.  Hot Rods & Custom Stuff has bridged the gap between old and new German engineering by wrapping the body of a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL around the chassis of a 2004 Mercedes-Benz SL600.  Just for a little added fun, this mega-machine has a full aftermarket performance package.  The result is nothing short of amazing.
