    I just don't see the point in a car like this and who it could possibly appeal to. At least with ones like the Toyota to Ferrari conversions the car it's based on is still out of reach price wise, but a real R230 can be had for the same money. Got to be one of the worst investments.

    Strange ... I do hope any potential buyer gets the drink in the centre console. Its worth as much as the car almost even if its lost its fizz.
    One thing though ... The steering wheel is stitched leather I notice ... Off an SL600? I quite fancy one of those if it had a part wood rim too.

    And it's only a 320.

    Seen a few with R230 bodykits, the only possible advantage I can think of is the rear seats (which the 230 doesn't have).
