hmmm 1996 red SL500. I have pics of a 1996 red 300SL.

Dont mention the name "Sac...". I HATE HIM. Wudnt mind takin pics of his cars though. I hate him so much that I have told my friends to refer to his Ferrari as the "Red 360" and not "Sac---'s Ferrari". Also I have told them to refer to the Fiat Palio "S10" as "Limited Edition Palio".

And my digicam wil take some time yaar. Have to collect $$$ , you see.

Clicked on private property with permission. There's an SL55 in Mumbai with the same color and type of rims, but this looks more of an SL500 since the side badges are missing in this pic

Has the car been lowered or is it a failure of the air suspension? It looks horribly low !

This looks like my friends ex SL500 if she is WB reg. The car is in excellent condition and was always pampered by him.

The car is running on stock suspension height and the alloys are oversize than the stock, hence they give the felling.

Going by the bumpers, it looks more like an SL500 with AMG wheels. There used to be a MH registered SL55 with these wheels - but its moved to Bangalore I guess.
