    MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL73 AMG

    I haven't decided yet. The SEC is one of my all time favourite cars, but it only has 2,000 miles on it, so its not a car I can use unless I'm wlling to drive the value out of it. It's more suited to a collector, but maybe I'll squirrel it away for the pension and stare at it occasionally.

    MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL73 AMG

    Bit early to be hitting the booze Bobby :D If you're asking if I have any other Brunei cars, then the answer is the 73 was part of a 3 car deal. The other two are a 560SEC AMG (narrow body) and a R129 600SL AMG. SEC is being restored at the moment and the 600SL is in storage and next in the queue

    MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL73 AMG

    That car was sold to the Patina Collective in Florida in 2022. On the '1 of 2 made in RHD' comment, The Sultan did have at least two others, but he chopped them up to make something called an Argento Vivo. It was a Honda Concept car that didn't make production, so he took two SL73's, hacked off...

    MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL73 AMG

    I'm out of my depth here, so will bow to your superior knowledge. Can ony add that from memory, all parts of the exhaust are either stamped or have a simple metal plaque attached that says AMG. I understand that some of the manufacturers used the Royal cars as prototypes and would debut future...

    MERCEDES-BENZ (R129) SL73 AMG

    This is my car, so I can answer the questions that Doodle has raised. The issue of the mix and match pre facelift and facelift parts has been raised before. You have to bear in mind the car is ex Brunei Royal Family and as such it can't be compared to a showroom model. The family ordered all...

    RHD SL73 AMG Value

    Fortunately, all of the specific 7.3 parts were with the car and serviceable, so I didn't have to find out. 🙏

    RHD SL73 AMG Value

    Thread resurrection and sorry for the lack of posts, but the car did arrive and after lots of delays and hard work to get it right, here it is…. Now has around 1800 miles after a bit of testing to iron out niggles. What a car and what an engine!

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    I'm fairly sure it wasnt 50/50 or anywhere close. A Shooting Brake is a rare site on the roads compared to the coupe.

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    I've gone down a bloody rabbit hole here! Lots of interesting date on that website including new registration broken down by year. 174 new CLS 63s registered between 2014 and 2017. (None whatsoever in 13 and 18) 2014 - 15 2015 - 83 2016 - 49 2017 - 27 Which gives us 174 cars registered...

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    So 137 CLS63s spread across model years 2013 - 2018 including both body styles. If we assume that 1 in 5 cars sold was a Shooting Brake (purely a guess), we have around 27 cars. Would also presume that there are more 2013 cars than 2018, as sales figures will have fallen away year by year as...

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    Never used that site before. Looks like 137 CLS63s spread across all model years including both body styles?

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    50 on SORN seems a very high number for a fairly recent car. Are these seen as future collectibles?

    Anyone got a CLS 63S shooting brake?

    Do we have a definitive number of cars for the CLS63s Shooting Brake? Another UK owner here and I've never seen another on the road.
