Anything with a 3 Pointed Star!
I remember this being auctioned 4/5 years back, all the work was done by AMG. It's guide figure back then was circa £300k. It was good investment by the looks of it.

Various.
Criminal to do that to genuine W198s.

They're quite rare.

Presumably the modern steering wheel has an airbag and the wheels are needed so better brakes and tyres can be used.

There has been one at brooklands in the past , but as this one is from a collection in Hong Kong it's unlikely to be this one.

The one that starts!
I'm sure there must be a way of getting some more suitable wheels over the brakes, maybe some modern steel wheels banded for wide rubber.
It is also crying out for a Moto-Lita steering wheel or something similar.

I think if it was mine a slight retrim so the seats are half leather with the centres in the old check cloth!
