What is your favourite Mercedes Benz motor?
I have owned many Benzes and thought today, what has been my favourite motor overall? Yes there are amazing engines out there at the moment from the 6.3, and engines that use minimal fuel.
But, the one motor that has tugged at my heart strings has been the almighty M110. I have had it in 3 different cars. A 1981 280TE, a 1985 280SE and a 1975 114 280. My favourite to sit behind was the 280. Although the carby did have its little quirks, it suited the car perfectly with its light weight. I miss and will never forget that six cylinder snarl and smoothness all the way to the redline with brilliant reliability.
Whilst its time has passed and after that I owned an M103 in a 300TE and now an M112 in a C240, I still have the utmost respect for the M110.
