Mercedes Apprentices tuck a full-size V8 in a small B-Class B 55
According to recent news, a team of trainees at the Rastatt plant in Germany has presented the B 55 in an altogether new dimension with a V8 engine and rear-wheel drive.
B-Class B 55
The idea of converting a B-Class into a 289kW V8-powered rear-wheel drive was conceived by plant manager Peter Wesp. The task of building the very special vehicle based on B-Class was assigned to few of his staff members and Wesp allowed complete creative freedom for the project. A foreman in the technical vocational training department Andreas Würz accepted the challenge immediately.
