FS: 1 x AMG1 18x10" et25 R129/2 piece forged Rim

I only have one of these mighty rare rims left from a full set i sold a while back.
This was a spare rear which are NLA
They are a high quality two piece fully forged centre made by BBS Germany under contract to AMG in the 90's.
They were usually only found on the AMG spec SL60 R129's and were very expensive back then and became NLA a few years back.
fronts were 18 x 8.5" et25 / rears 18 x 10" et25

This spare rear is in mint condition and the lips are highly polished and sealed with a special alloy protection finish (not clear paint).

The face of the rim centre is still the original factory paint/clear from manufacture in top condition ( ignore the light reflections bouncing off the surface)

I have deliberately left the rear of the rim as-is so you can see its condition without any touch-up work to see how very little use this spare rim has had since 1996. Its still has the sticker balance weights as you can see as i have deliberately not removed them.

It also still has the original sale code sticker (label) on the rear as well as the barrel from when sold new in 1996 (this is in addition to the factory coding embossed during the manufacture of the rim) and identifies exactly the batch it was made from.

These BBS made 2 piece forged rims are still jaw dropping on an AMG R129 even today and in keeping an original AMG spec R129 in complete original condition as sold new is all important in its re-sale value today for AMG Collectors.
I can ship almost anywhere in the world via secure air-freight to your door with tracking - anywhere in USA/Canada for USD$120 contained in a secure double thickness purpose cardboard rim box well protected.
These rims in good condition now sell for around $3,000 a set.

For this one rear 10" rim
AUD$800 = USD$600 + USD$120 freight = USD$720 to your door
I have many more pics on request if you want to email me to discuss further.

I do have full sets of the mighty AMG OZ racing 17 x 8.5 et18 / 17 x 10" et17 that also came off the AMG R129's as a rim option from AMG that are also NLA new for some yrs. Those are ultra rare as well now but remain a global cult rim and i run those on all my 3 x W126's

Really need to move this rear rim as taking up storage space at present.
PM me if you own a set and could do with an absolute perfect condition rear spare.
Any reasonable offer considered
