The car was earlier advertised as "ex-Jodhpur Maharaja". Don't know the authenticity of that claim!

It ain't a W108 saar. It is- The Mercedes Benz W111.

I wonder if this is the very car. Registration is Pune, obviously, MTP.

Another Heckflosse (W111 ) was getting painted at a paintshop near my place. 'Either of the two- if not the same car.

Excellent car. Rare to see R107s, and even more rare are SLCs. If I'm not mistaken, there are only 4 or 5 cars in India. A Red 450 SLC in Delhi, a Gold one in Bombay and this silver one is all that I know of.

Beautiful !!

Unfortunately, it'll mean I probably end up putting it on the market for sale soon, given how work and travel schedules look in the near future. D a m n.

Still has the original palomino interiors and I was lucky to have bought the car with original AMG Penta alloys and the AMG bodykit. This particular photograph has the side cladding removed. For a car of that vintage, handles exceptionally well and needless to say, the 3.8 litre V8 gets it moving in quite a hurry.

Beautiful.. a MB, a coupe, a V8 & pentas; what else can one ask for??

I was advised to never ask someone if they are going to sell their car. Yet, I'll take the liberty because you indicated the possibility of selling it. Is it still with you and any plans to sell it??
