Whilst I appreciate that these cars have quite a following, subtle and stylish they are not. There are so many better cars to be had for circa £200k than an old SEC with a body kit and bling wheels.

They just look far too 1990s gangsta and would probably have suited an NWA video "back in the day".

Nice car, but for that sort of money you'd have to be very sure it was original (rather than a later replica/conversion), which might not be easy with a Japanese car.

The car was powered with a 6.0-liter engine, producing twice the torque at half the engine speed of the original 5.6-liter Mercedes-Benz engine.

Presumably that's referring to performance at some given RPM figure (900, or whatever). I find it hard to believe that AMG doubled the peak torque of the MB 5.6 V8?

"These vehicles were prohibitively expensive and therefore very rare"

At that sort of price, they still are.
