Here is picture of the same car from this year's Speed Run



I doubt its an AMG but it sounded awesome. It overtook me on Turner Road at Bandra after the event

Hey Dippy, the car at Speedrun was different from the one that Mav has posted. It had different wheels.
The R129 SL's were never tuned by AMG. They had only AMG Sports packages which included wheels, tyres and seats.

It's evident that that is not the same car. The car featured on the first page is the facelifted W129, with sculpted wing mirrors, clear headlamps (with xenon bulbs), body coloured doorhandles and fittings, and certainly, those gorgeous alloys. The facelifted SLs were released in 2000, to my knowledge.

I must say, Sachin has a great taste for cars. Have heard that he has a good collection of Mercedes-Benz's and BMW's.

Yes i second that. Its not an AMG from the factory. Also, the K&N filters really degrade the look of the engine bay. I mean that V12 is probably more or less maxed out in stock form anyway. A couple of K&N drop in filters would not do anything! Besides, I highly doubt that K&N makes drop in filters for that engine and year!
