Great Color Combo. Looks lovely inside and out with the exceptions noted.

GreenT,
I think he wants them in this thread so when the car sells and the add disappears, there will be pictures in the thread.

They use embedded HTML so pics aren't as easily downloadable. No worries, I got the images uploaded on the OP.

Hopefully it'll stay here in CA.

The fact the car was donated to the Petersen Museum leads me to believe its possibly been owned by the Frankenheimers' since day 1, because no dealer or second-tier owner would do that. Someone knew the car was special and treated it as such. Miles are pretty high for a celebrity-owned car which means, if one-owner, it was enjoyed thoroughly by the owners. Though it was last driven around 2009 probably around when Petersen Museum got the car.

Also love the color-coded steering wheel and trays on the rear door panels.

I'm planning to bid on this beautiful creation.

I have no affiliation to the seller, the car or anything or anyone else related to this car.

If any of you ballers are also legitimately interested and you plan to bid and you have a "price is no object" budget/desire for this car, please PM me and I'll tell you my price point. If you (honestly) tell me yours is higher, then I'll refrain from piddling around and pointlessly jacking up the price. It's not that I don't want it, and I do believe that the car is probably worth more than the auction estimate, but I think my maximum price point is still below what an informed member of this forum (with the price is no object budget and desire) would pay and I'm just trying to be courteous in that regard. I'm not assuming that there's someone out there that will pay any price for this thing, but I am guessing that there's probably someone out there with a budget bigger than mine. If someone's legitimately willing to pay more than I am, they should end up with the car - even if it doesn't get bid up to my price point and they end up paying less than I would have!

Part of me thinks that this might not be an appropriate post, but what the hell - this is a Benzaholic Mutual Admiration Society we have here so I'm going with my gut. Naturally, if anyone does PM me, whatever's said is between me and the individual. I'm an honest player in that regard


Enjoy yourself, Marco.

Man, that thing is absolutely gorgeous! Ah to be a poor-man (in America that is...). Cash-poor, when beauties like this pop up for sale.

Actually it looks just like mine... the color that is.

But seriously folks, there's something very refined about Lorinser that I can't get enough of. AMG has the muscle and the brawn, Lorinser has the class and sophistication.

Stunning car, I hope it sells well.
