RM will hold their Monaco Sale on the evening of May 10, at Le Sporting Monte-Carlo, a more location I couldn’t imagine. One lot caught my eye while paging the auction catalog which is on Italian and race cars a few German and British marques in, was this rare AMG built and modified Mercedes Benz AMG .

This car is built on an original 300SL W198 coupe that was mildly modified to an AMG tuned M119 6.0 liter V8 producing 380HP, the same you would have found in one of the R129 SL60 AMG cars in the mid to late 1990s. The power is put to the by a W4A four-speed automatic transmission, mid 1990s R129 style. Bilstein adjustable sport was installed along with brakes in the rear with brakes in the front. The original rear suspension was replaced a modern unit from an SL.

The exterior reveals a handful of to let you know this is no ordinary Electrically adjustable mirrors fitted to both sides of the the exterior fuel filler cap was to the right-rear side of the car and most the modern AMG wheels with low tires.

The interior is an interesting mix of very and classic. Red leather Recaro seats with three seat belts and a modern wheel contrast with the looking gauge cluster, for the digital odometer. The modern transmission selector looks 1990s, but just a few inches is a 50+ year old Becker Europa Of course, it is fitted with air conditioning and an iPod hookup.

The of this car is well known and to the auction catalog, of the 11 ‘resto-mod’ built by AMG, just were left hand Gullwing coupes such as one. This example was purchased by DD Racing in Germany after its production in 2001 and in Germany. In 2005 it found its way to a in Hong Kong where it has since. It’s been just 500KMs since it was by AMG in 2001.

This is a very tough car to try to pre sale. So many collectors and value originality above all these days, but the allure of a version of the iconic 300SL, a piece, hand built by what could that in the market? Could these 11 defy reason and become the the 29 original alloy bodied in another 50 years? Only will tell.

For now, I’d call this car two sacrilege (W198 body and one part completely awesome M119 6.0 liter motor) and likely, a whole lotta
