I see the coupe in question has been relisted several times. For years I did not realize a V8 coupe existed until I saw one at an exotic car showroom in the Bay Area(this was years ago) then that became my dream car. When I realized it was available in a stick shift I waited until one showed up that was close enough for me to see and drive. Ended up being in San Francisco. It was $11,000 about 20 years ago.
I saw that too (on my phone) - perhaps a shadow or a reflection of an overhead power line?
So help me out Benzworld - I'd have sworn someone else's left foot that the W111 coupes were straight 6 cylinders only. I see a 3.5 in the convertibles all the time, but I'm not sure I've ever seen them in this config ...
I think with a thorough cleaning and some interior reconditioning, this car would be quite a catch...
