I already knew this. Didn't know it was a limited edition though.

the C43 was produced alongside the C32. Seen a similar looking C Class in Bandra once. The front looked very much similar to the first pic by Revv.

The first car in this thread is 'Classic'. Hence that black door handle.
V12's one is 'Elegance'. The difference is only in trims.

Hmmm.. well it's not the cricketer's car for sure since that was a last gen model, not this gen.

A couple of things are funny with this car which make me suspect that it's not a 43 AMG:

1. The tailpipe fitting is all wonky.

2. Did Mercs come with that antenna on the rear windscreen? Looks like a tacky add-on in the second pic.

3. Rims are non-standard too.

4. In the second pic, the badges look misaligned.

5. If I am not mistaken this gen C-class only ever came as either a C32 or a C55, I'm checking on that & will confirm in a few minutes.

I seriously think this is just a normal 180/200/220 with AMG badges. Also, Bunny in the second pic, did you use any photo editor to sharpen up the badges? They look a little funny.

Well that's a fake for sure since this gen never came as a 43, only option were C32 or C55. Here are pictures of both:
