Rolling Coal

Hand-built 80's Mercedes with OM606 diesel engine and two Holset turbos rips the tarmac all the way to 7000 rpm. Let there be smoke.

Diesel powered drift cars are still a rare sight.
Buttholes in the rear help the radiator breathe. And when that isn't enough the whole trunk can be removed.
The whole front frame was designed with 3D modeling. Heavy duty is a word that comes to mind...
Quite a wind blows through these pipes as the boost pressure can be set as high as 4,5 bars.
Onni Ojala's Merc shows what great building skills and a will to be different can lead to.
