1984 Mercedes-Benz Biturbo by Sbarro

Based on the six Sbarro Shahin Mercedes-Benz prototypes of 1983, the Biturbo was unveiled at the 1984 Geneva Auto Show as a revitalized version of the six concepts. The gull-wing doors, horizontal-lined front grille, dual sets of headlights, and white leather interior, were carry-overs from the previous designs. The windshield was tinted pink around the edges. The interior was also equipped with a telephone, air conditioning, and a high-quality audio system. Based on Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC mechanics and powered by a 350-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine, the Biturbo could reach a top speed of 171 miles per hour.
