Drool. Great pics aren't they. Were they really 385hp? That's kinda bonkers.

Hmm... it doesn't look like the AMG ones I've seen. Seems to be one smooth piece in front of the wheels as opposed to these. Am I missing something?...

Granted, I'm an AMG neophyte.

This is an authentic amg bumper. The Widebody came as a one piece designed to match up with the wider fenders as opposed to the standard lip. This is an amazing car.

GreenT can you do your magic and pull all those pics from that website and upload in larger format as per the main pic you posted up.
I can't even download the pics off that website?
great shots worth saving in the archives

Call me a heretic, but I have a hard time with WB SEC's. While there are some which I like, most appear to be too "overdone". IF the car is going to be used exclusively on the track and is outfitted as such, then I think they look fine. But for road use, not so much. I'm fond of SEC's which have been lowered and have updated (particularly AMG) wheels and larger tires. Sorry, I suck.

To my eye, the prettiest coupes have EU bumpers and lights, AMG wheels and tint.
I think many of the guys on this site have better looking cars. For example, the car pictured above in KRH's post.

There. I said it. Flambé as you will.
