1998 Mercedes SL60 Rinspeed or a lesson in how not to sell a car

We see a lot of rare German cars. of the best gems from the likes of AMG or Alpina bring the out of the wood work and as such high prices. The one common that we see in big ticket sales of cars is documentation.

Now documentation on like these is not always It is well known that to find specific records of done to a car from some like AMG can end in a … end. In cases if you really want to be about an engine modification it opening up the engine and looking at on internals. That said are often other clues can help you back up a story a one off vehicle. Scanning in any documentation you is the obvious first step, but adding pictures of data the VIN, or other unique is needed.

A seller should never any rock solid claims the vehicle without being to back them up. At the very give some indication of a as to why you are making a claim. If you aren’t about something it is much to say so up front or even to ask for help in a feature or modification within the of an advertisement. Enlisting the help of out in the world can help in two ways. You get some helpful information and the up front nature can prevent a from seeming cagey and off the very community where potential buyers reside.

Ok deep breath, what’s all have to do with this car. Here we have a listed as a 1998 SL60 modifications from Swiss Rinspeed, the car has 71,000 miles.

The car good with the Benz style red interior complete dash accents and soft top with the black. The seller the car started life as a SL500 Edition and that it was then to AMG spec with the 6 liter V8. The car has correct 18″ AMG monoblocks. Nothing that seems out of place. did produce a “special edition” of the one of several R129 editions. did have a history with they worked as an agent for AMG in

So what are the red flags with ad? The painfully slim description in the advertisement with this car is the thing that catches There are so many wannabe engineered” Mercedes out there just because a car has the badges a has to do a lot more than give one and expect people to accept it as The AMG badge on the engine does up to what can be seen on documented Benzs, there is some in how AMG badged these engines. The offers to talk to potential over the phone about the car or the guys at the local Mercedes talk about the car, is good. If the guys at the shop something about the car it should be so in the auction. Buyer’s in the real small production AMG market are buying as collectors with in the back of their mind. of this type will not a car with such thin

Other things that you question the integrity of the seller the car being sold out of Portland with photos showing it Florida plates. Not a huge but it does make you question how old the are. The bigger sin though is a picture from a sales in your ad and not disclaiming it as such. The interior shot is from sales literature and is not the car being its the last photo in our gallery on page.

The seller states “DO HOME WORK ON THIS yes buyers should do research on purchases, but unfortunately in this searching for info about the car several threads discussing how the seller seems.

The ask on the car is $22,950, which is line other genuine AMG engined of the era, but without more this price will be realized. There is just two to question and no one wants to drop and end up with a slightly more standard SL500. If I was selling car and couldn’t pull together I’d find the nearest dyno and a few pulls and post the results. would be no question as to whether the car was a real deal 6.0 then. small investment could a $10k swing in what the will bring for this

Despite the warning signs I am leaning towards suspecting is the genuine item, but wouldn’t think about buying it the way stand and I really don’t the sales brochure photo in with the others. A seller is ok with that is probably ok not disclosing flaws. I open it up to you what’s your take on ride?
