Wow. I know of the 1st silver SL55 AMG. But the second and third ????

This SL really looked amazing. I dont know if it was repainted or something. The lower half (or shud i say quarter) was painted maroon.

This is not a AMG its just a 300SL with AMG wheels. There is also a Gold colored S55AMG recently imported. Its lying in Bandra witha garage getting some touch up done.

Ok let me clear this 3rd confusion...
1. SL 55 - Silver
2. SL 55 - Red
3. SL 55 - Silver(the one i saw MH regn.)

Now, someone told there is another SL in town and if its true then we have four SL 55's in town ..... and that is also silver ....

For those interested, there is a similar red SL currently in the small garage at the base of the race course flyover. Red with AMG wheels and side skirts. Dunno if it really is an AMG though and it looked to be in a shabby condition.

There was a mint condition MG out there too. Check them out if you're in the neighborhood.
