High Performance 6.3?

Does anyone know if Mercedes made a limited run of a high performance version of the W109 6.3 sedan?

This was a nice short read on the red pig.


My signature:
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.

to answer your question:

Mercedes did NOT make any limited run of high performance 6.3.
All the cars had the same poweroutput of 250 DIN-HP ... EXCEPT the US-versions from Vin 002840 and up, which had a reduced power/compression.

All the race 6.3's were privat conversions

The 6.3 was pretty high-po out of the box.
