    mmm not sure, think I prefer standard car, but would like to see it in the metal http://www.ccbenz.co.uk/30621/113658.html
    The top picture looks odd, surely something wrong with the camera settings ???

    I'm sure we've seen that car before. I'm afraid I think it's hideous!

    Hasn't Talbir got one?

    I thought he posted pics a while back.

    It certainly looks familiar and folks got caught out before criticising someone's pride and joy.

    The car is an acquired taste and I can see why it miight not appeal to some but Talbir assures us his was the original spec

    That is VERY VERY red!
    I like the dechromed look, but it needs some nice black paint! :devil:

    I'm surprised the original owner went to all that trouble and expense, but he skimped on any interior AMG trinkets, some of factory options and went for the smaller engine. There's also the noted abscence of the Sebring AMG exhaust :confused:

    I believe Talbir's is a red 300SL, but the dechroming isn't colour-coded. IIRC, it's black. And his wheels aren't/weren't the Penta AMGs.

    I'm sure he'll be along before too long to correct me :p ;)

    There was a very famous one of these that looked all but identical which used to have the Reg AK47....that one had the full blown engine conversion and was featured in a number of magazines back in the 80's.

    There was also another red one, like the one posted on the link that appeared on E-bay some years ago and it may turn out that its the one they are now selling....then again it could be yet another red Stratton conversion that has surfaced.

    That was the AMG press car , known as ' The Weapon ' for obvious reasons ( wonder who has that plate now ? ) ....

    I had a poster of it on my wall as a kid :eek:

    I, too, first thought this one could be the red one from ebay. But , IIRC, it had a red leather interior :confused:
