If you’re headed up to SEMA then be sure to scope out the latest creation from the fellas over at Ranz Motorsports. Their latest entry into the game is a 1973 Mercedes Benz 240 coupe that has been retrofitted big time. Nestled inside the engine bay is a Toyota 2JZ engine that sports a front mount intercooler and as if that weren’t enough to add insult to injury, the interior was completely gutted and retrofitted with a Lexus IS interior complete with working AC, power windows and push button start. I can go on forever about the details of the car but you’ll have to see it in person to enjoy their latest project. Stay tuned for more pictures and information.
Project Blackout will be on display inside the Nitto Tires booth.
