Race car pics

I am looking for pictures or info on a car which I beleive was a 190. It had a paint scheme that looked like the sheetmetal was peeling off of the body exposing the engine beneath.I would greatly appreciate any pictures or info on the car or it's driver.

Can you narrow down the source, publication etc.
I can copy the thread in the W201.

I believe you are thinking of the blue CLK-GTR race car, with "Mercedes-Benz Original-Teile" and Warsteiner/Mobil 1
logos. The paint scheme shows the exposed 12-cylinder engine.
I have the 1/18 scale model sitting in front of me, but no idea how to add a picture to the forum...??

Here's a nice top view of the predecessor. I believe they tweaked the aerodynamics after Le Mans.

I know what your talking about. I have a picture of the car (Front View). The problem is it's uploaded to another website along with 2000 of my other pictures.

This is a bit newer version of what you are describing, I believe.
