ya kleemann also modifies Mercs. I had seen pics of it in an automag. 640 bhp SL55 AMG. What I hate of their mods is the gullwing doors on the SL55. They look out of place.

Many cars have the same speedo dial for kmph and mph.
Nope cause the 200 Number is engraved on the Speedo Disc. It just calculates the 200 as the End fiq on the Speedo and well from Miles its into Km. To have the 330 Speedo I gotta change the Speedo Disc.

Yeah V12 the gull wing doors do look out of place. They actually spoil the looks of the car

Cheers

I like the looks of the Kleemann, including the doors, but its too "show car" like to own IMO. Look at the clearance at the front!!

hey me too..i like it too..though i liked the mod doors of the M3 better than this..they just looked right there..here they are little differently modified..but still nice..ofcourse most of the mods on this car wouldnt be able to run in india..cuz of the clearance prob..but you can get the doors..i would suspect about 5-8k$ for the mod, but you cant get them done in india..dont even think about it..

its a funny but scary thought..

The chrome paint has been out since a long time and I guess the car is up for sale. Seen the Speedrun SL55 and an H2 parked together in Lokhandwala last week. H2 owner got off and took a couple of rounds of the SL55. His bodyguards also got a few rounds of the car.

Here's a pic of both the cars parked together. Please excuse the quality of the pics - Cell + Night mode

The white one is not an AMG. It just has the badges. The golden is an SL55 and is seen around Bandra frequently. Owned by a friend.
