Spotted a SL55 AMG at Haji Ali today morning. Did not want to risk taking pics as i was driving, i just rolled down my window & heard the AMG growl. It went into a lane opposite SoBo Central. Btw, have seen quite a few exotics going into that lane including Maserati's, Porsche's, i guess it houses Four Seasons Auto & Mazda Motors as well!

Same car which i spotted posted in another thread.

Wonder how many coats of paint this car has had. But this one actually makes it looks fabulous, for once.

And another one. Badged an SL500 but had a nice exhaust note to it.

Regards,
Thats an SL500 as far as I can see. And if it was LHD then it was probably Ratan Tatas.

The pic posted by Harshal - thats actually an SL500 as pointed out by Akshay.

The pics posted by FlyingSpur - the white car is an SL55 AMG. However not sure why it has the lights and exhausts (single on each side) of an SL500. The silver car (Reg No 0088) is an SL500 with the SLR nose.

Getting back on the topic of the Red SL55 AMG - Was there any other red SL55 sold / imported in India other than Spiderman's? Reason I ask is I had seen an ad on Quikr for a red SL55. Looked quite buggered up in the pics but it was advertised as a single owner and clocking <15k kms, after market cheap looking alloy wheels. Asking price ~25L.

Spidermans SL55 was bought by a Team-bhpian and then sold a couple of years ago. Any idea if this could be the same car or another red SL55?

AFAIK, there's only one red SL55 in India. This could be some other SL55 which is repainted to red recently. Not sure though. Can you share the link to the Ad

Here's the ad for the red SL55 which is on sale on OLX.

http://www.olx.in/i2/item/mercedes-s...g-IDXFIy3.html

I think this is not Spiderman's SL55 because this one is listed as a 2006 model whereas Spiderman's SL55 is a 2004-2005 model. Also this one is a single owner outstation car whereas his was sold twice. And if his was the only red SL55 in the country then probably -
This is a SL500 modified to a SL55.
Or one of the non-red SL55s painted red.

How times change and things evolve. The Elite i20 interiors look (not quality) more premium than the SL55. If some aftermarket guy could do a alcantara finish on the Elite's dash, it would be leagues ahead than the SL55.

I guess the confusion is cleared on the red SL55. Seen an ad on OLX today where it mentions the car is fully restored. It's now painted (or wrapped in silver) which means this was the original color. The wheels have bewn changed too. Here's the link :

This car was in BLR for a long time. It's had a million wraps ranging from black chrome to gold chrome to fluorescent to red. Not in the best shape AFAIK.
