Lightbulb Best Ride

While most of you are sleeping, it's early Sunday morning here good old ZA (South Africa). I'm currently planning on a Best Ride for myself, since I'll be turning 55 soon I want something different and yet be able to enjoy it for many years.
Take one C180 add a tuned motor from a 300e, top it up with a supercharger and all necessary goodies under the hood. Work the transmission and suspension to suit new spec and just have loads of fun.
Plan is to keep the outside fairly standard with just a hint of mods like nice Merc OE wheels and nice exhaust tone. On the inside sporting it up with later model sport type seats and upoholstery trim.
Maybe someone has tried it?
I believe that Merc is the perfect base to work from since they are well engineered, safe and reliable; it can take speeds and strains way higher than what it was built for. Could that be why Merceds Benz is used as the "Benchmark" in the inustry?
