What about one of the 6.8 l "Rote Sau"? As far as I know there was two of them. One, which was the second that was built I believe, was later sold to Matra to test Aircraft tires. They even stretched it. It was later crushed in 1992.
And the other one I don't know where it disappeared. Might still be out there somewhere?
It's really too bad – on one side I can understand that back then they had to sell this car, for new projects. It's the car that started it all, AMG maybe wouldn't exist today if they hadn't sold this car back then. But then, in 1992, I'd believe they had enough money to buy the car back. They should have done it, it's a shame really.
