Default Pics : Silver Mercedes SL500 with optional Sports Package (///AMG).

Hi guys,

Seen this SL500 with optional Sports Package just a few minutes ago near Juhu. We were busy trying to get a pic of a black Celica with free flow when my bro suddenly seen the SL on the left. One look and we recognised it as the SL55 AMG. Then on looking at the wheels we knew this wasnt the same one as the Speedrun. Then a look at the numberplate was enuf to realise that this was "just" a SL500 with an optional AMG kit. Pics didnt come very clear. But enuf to know that its an SL with an AMG kit. Enjoy ::

I was wondering that how did a look at the numberplate make you realise that it was a kitted car and not an original AMG.

Did the rims look like the one on the SL in the above pic?

Nice to see merc getting fitted with neat alloys these days. There is also a black S350L near my house in bandra keep seeing it on pali hill and carter road...its got i think 18 or 19inch mags with a wee bit too much of chrome.... total 'Nigga' type mags...didnt see it move so for all u know they could be spinners.

Hey,
V12 is absolutely right bout this one.Its a SL500 Amg.The guy who owns the car is a well known celebrity and connected to the film industry since a long time now.And in person,this car certainly is a stunner.Hard to spot the difference.

Thats bcos i remember this car (with this particular regn) having an AMG kit. And when i saw it that day, just by looking at the regn i knew it was a SL500 and not an SL55.
