“Länge läuft”

This is a German expression about cars with a long wheelbase being superior at high speed driving on the Autobahn. This concept also applies to dragsters, even though the acceleration run ends at a the 1/4 mile marker, where the fun on the German high speed road network begins. In the spirit of Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week, I created a capable Citroën DS Dragster last year. This year, a Mercedes-Benz W109 300 SEL 6.3 painted in Hellelfenbein received the same treatment. The long wheelbase was extended an additional inch in order to fit the drag slicks while retaining the rear doors. The fender flares have been altered to accomodate the wheels and the chrome trim was modified to keep the stock look. This vehicle should be comfortable on the highways with a trailer in tow and rather quick down the quarter mile on the dragstrips visited during Drag Week.
