Dude thats not a SL 500.......its an SL55AMG!! Damn this is sad, but i have heard that these custom guys autcion these kind of cars of which owners dont turn up or pay the duty for dirt cheap.......pls keep me updated if u know of them selling this car or something coz the price they sell it far is usually a steal!

If i am not mistaken this should be an SL55 AMG or maybe an SL500 with an AMG kit.Guys need more info on this.And seriously its a very pityful sight to see such a beauty being towed away so mercelessly.I would screw up such guys,believe me.

Methinks thats an SL55. Check out the air scoops(btn the doors and the headlamps) and the quad exhausts. It is unfortunate that such a great piece of machinery was in such shambles. Check out the rear discs, it looks like it has got rust all over it.

It looks like the SL55 AMG. Wheels, skirts. 4 exhausts all say its an AMG. However the rear badges are missing along with the Kompressor badges. Maybe these were some of the parts that were removed.

However balenopower, was this car with a dealer or the owner??

Even the SL 500 has those vents.
