Car Infos from Wikipedia :

Originally not intended for motor sports, a few cars were built for racing, usually with the engine enlarged to 6.8 litres or more. The car had an impressive, but short-lived racing career, due to the lack of suitable tyres, or rule changes preventing the use of them.

AMG, now the high-performance division of Mercedes-Benz, but then a small local tuning workshop founded by two former Mercedes engineers, modified a makeshift car to compete in racing events, nicknamed “Red Sow” (German: Rote Sau) which finished 2nd in the 24 Hours of Spa in 1971. At the end of its racing career the 6,834 cc engine yielded 428 PS (315 kW; 422 hp).

The car was sold to French company Matra who used it for tests of jet fighter landing gear. Five examples were built: three racers and two test cars.

Deinstall / Install Instructions :

i recommend always to DELETE FIRST any previous versions of this car / mod to prevent crashes / conflicts !

This mod will overwrite the STEX_GTL.gtr, TALENT_GTL.gtr, SIM_Legend.gdb and SIM_Legends_Single_Makes.gdb files – those files are from the default GTL-GTR2 mod – the only change i made was to add the Mercedes 300 SEL to the SIM_Legends_Single_Makes.gdb. If you use modified version of this files you should make a backup of those files before intstalling this mod.

to install, extract with WinRAR or else and drop the GameData folder into your GTR2 main-directory – allow to overwrite existing one with “YES ALL” – done.

Terms of Use :

– only for private, non-commercial use / entertainment
– use at your own risk
