New 2011 Mercedes-Benz B55 Concept

2011 Mercedes-Benz B55 Concept has a V8 engine and rear-wheel drive. B 200 CDI which had anyway been delegated to the training workshop for learning purposes. While the trainees completely disassembled the car, Würz went in search of a suitable engine and found what he was looking for. And no mistake: the 5.5-litre V8 developing 285 kW (388 hp) and 530 newton metres of torque was transplanted into the B-Class together with a seven-speed automatic transmission and the engine control unit.


For the brakes Mercedes-Benz B55 Concept the team also struck gold in the replacement parts catalogue, this time in the C32 AMG listing. Perforated and internally ventilated disc brakes in size 345 x 34 mm were implanted at the front, with perforated and internally ventilated disc brakes in size 300 x 30 mm at the rear. The system was combined with striking 8.5 x 18 AMG sports wheels in a five-spoke design shod with 235/40 ZR 18 Y tyres at the front and 9 x 18 wheels with 255/35 ZR 18 Y tyres at the rear.
The project team headed by foreman Würz are particularly proud that at 1620 kg, the weight of the B55 is only around 180 kg greater than that of the original car. Which means that impressive performance figures can be expected.
