day before yesterday (sunday) at around lunch time, we just stepped out of our house and guess what ??

8 superbikes rumbling down our road !! 8 !! Abt 6 of them were 2004 and later models of R1s, Gixxers, Busas, and at least one Ninja (didnt notice which one 12 or 6 ).....

Didnt actually count how many of each..but there was at least 3 R1s and 1 Busa....what a sight....the whole road was rumbling....

And of course people were standing around to stare. I wish there had been a traffic jam. I would have got the camera out and taken some pics...

Looks like an SL500 with the AMG kit.

Its a SL55 AMG. The tail-lights shout that. SL500 has a full red taillight, while a SL55 has a black stripe (see pics below). Also it has quad exhausts, AMG bumpers.

Also notice that the "AMG" from the AMG-badge is removed but the /// is left. Its mostly looks like the same car from the Mumbai Speed Runs.

Question is "What is the reason for that??!!"

Unbelievable, I'll never understand some people. I'm just left confused.

My first thought was an AMG bodykit, but so many of you seem to have heard the hum, which you don't find that easily in the 500.

Never heard of anyone debadging a higher-spec model, and replacing the badges with that of a lower spec. Ha!
