Vinay,

Of course the ad is fake, in the sense, the car is not in India. The level of detailing in the engine bay and the car in general make it a $100,000 plus, 190SL. Nothing in the background in any of the images suggests that the car is in India.

I wonder why OLX doesn't insist on stricter verification before people can post ads. I've bought more than a 100 individual items on EBay international and not once have I been cheated. They obviously have rules which filter bogus ads.

Again This may be a genuine advertisement! The seller may simply be looking at greener pastures to sell the car and why not? today so many Europeans are convinced that Indians have the money to buy such stuff that I would not be surprised at all.

The asking price is 35,000 Euros sounds a tad less I do agree. But not all SL's sell for 100,000 dollars. From the plates this car is in spain.

Since the car is not in India as indicated by the plates on this car as well as the red car in the background, whoever buys it would need to import it into India. Being a LHD, this cannot be imported according to the current rules AFAIK.

Was there a diesel S220 in 1952?

If the car is a pre-1949 it can be imported even if it is a LHD

190SL was launched in 1955, so it has to be post-1949 and hence cannot be imported.

I had posted about this car here

The last time I was in Bangalore, SunnyBoi and me had been to 'see' the car.

We found that the car is up for sale. The owner wants Rs.1Lakh for it. According to him, he bought this car as a parts car for his Millecento and has now no more use for it. He claims that the car is in "good, running" condition.

If anyone's interested, please PM me; I don't think it's appropriate for me to share the number here.

Ps- my only 'vested interest' here is in seeing a good old Fiat back on the road, I have absolutely no other 'interest' in the car, neither do I personally know the owner.
