Where is the R8? No one spotted it yet? What about the M3s? Vanished?
Can you tell me the name of the workshop and the name of the owner with the location of the cars please.

Since when does the SLK have scissor doors? :o
Is it a genuine AMG?
BTW, I saw what looked like a Yamaha R1. Was dark so couldnt make out the colour. What a noise it made!!

The car in front of SLK55 is also a Merc but not sure of the model. You can tell it's a Merc by looking at the ORVM.

The car seems to be a SLK55 amg but not sure whether it is a genuine amg or a bodykit and an exhaust add on. The car in front must be a merc as the car is in the mercedes workshop. The owner has just bought it from delhi.

The tail-lights say it's an SLK with an AMG kit. And since it's from Delhi it's got to be a kit 'coz fellow Bhpian v10 had pointed out earlier in the Delhi thread that it's a kit.

It surely is a kit, no second thoughts on that, beacuse the SLK55 AMG does not come with scissor doors. Even if its an aftermarket job, it looks neat, especially the scissor doors. They are Seski!!

Kit or not, that's a fantastic looking SLK! The AMG kit looks fab! It can fool most people into believing that it's the real deal! In fact, with those scissor-doors in operation, I wouldn't be surprised if some even call it an SLR when they catch it from the front! I know people who would!
