Default Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Roadster Replica by DC

Guys,

I got this pic from a Friend. His cousin clicked it in Mumbai.

I am not good at identifying classics so i was unable to find a relevant thread in the classics section too.

@MODS, pls move it to appropriate thread.

Regards,
I think this is the classic merc replica made by DC. Was featured in Autocar a couple of years ago. Also there on the DC website.

That's an interesting find and what appears to be a decently executed replica of the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Roadster driven by the great Stirling Moss in the 1955 Mille Miglia. It's also touted to be the most expensive/valuable car in the world. Any guesses on what the donor car could be?

That seems to be a replica or kit car of Stirling Moss's legendary Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR race car.

If it wasn't for the tacky looking tail-lamps, it was perfect!

IIRC, there was a 300 SL Roadster in Pune, maybe that served as a base car.

EDIT:: Attaching a pic of the actual thing for reference.

I guess the tail lights had to be made do with since the actuals wont be easily available.

This is a replica based on A W124 E300 made by DC and shares its garage with a 458 in Bombay.

If I am not mistaken, then I had seen this car under covers with a couple of SUVs and a 500 much before the 458 came.
Bit that's considering you and I talk about the same 458

I do not know the source of this photo, since it was sent to me by someone who doesn't know much about it. The car is in India, most likely Mumbai. All I wonder is, what could be the donor car?

Based on a W124. Done by DC. There was an article in a magazine a while ago, I think Motoring.
