Post this on the R129 forum and you'll get all the information you seek. This car is an early model R129 with a body kit, wheels, and interior modifications. The common body kits are Lorinzer and Brabus, but I don't know which one this might be.

It will be worth a whole lot to the person who wants a car modified this way. It will be worthless to someone looking for a stock R129, or someone looking for an R129 that isn't quite so aggressive looking.

That said, this modification looks pretty high quality and the condition of the car is very good for an 18 year-old car. If its mechanical condition is as good (that's a BIG question, and will have a great deal to do with what the car is worth), you might find a buyer willing to pay a premium. I think the market value for a well-maintained stock edition is about $6k.

Again, post this on the R129 forum (scroll down until you find the roadster forums); you'll get your answer there.
