But like, auctioned off still means it exists right? I mean, purely because it was auctioned, doesn't mean they destroyed it to make little toys?
yeah well auctioned off i meant that there is only one Golden one which was seized by the customs.

Chrome?!?! That will be one hell of a loud car(read: attention seeking) in terms of looks

The chrome one is the same silver 1 that used to come for the earlier speedruns . It was driven by DC's son Bonito at speedrun as the owner of the sl55amg was driving his M5 ( White m5 with M6 rims )

Yes. The registration was changed to MH and is now chrome.

Both the Chrome SL55 and the M5 from the Speedrun have aftermarket Einessmann exhausts.

The growl from the SL after the exhaust upgrade is to die for.
