560SEC Gemballa

Last weekend went to Cars and Color in Telluride CO. Driving 400 miles of absolutely gorgeous mountain highways with peak Aspen color (@1000 total miles) with MBCA group. Most unusual Mercedes there was this 560SEC Gemballa. Tebo lives in Longmont CO and has a 300 car private collection and sent this one to the show.

Great car - but there is a little mistake in the story! The shown car might have gotten a Gemballa Interiour, but basicly ist a b+b magic top! I wonder, why someone gave this car to Gemballa - b+b could have done the interiour too.

The official b+b website http://www.bb-frankfurt.com/index.ph...edes/magic-top

Yep definitely a B.B. magic top

B.B. was reknown for their interior. And I think this was one of their show cars so they would want all the credit , Very surprised they would have another tuner do some of the work and put their name on IT

I love the top.

Is there anything special about the interior other than it being a Pulp Fiction murder scene?

Thatís whatís unusual . Gemballa usually did the color match like carat, but also typically did 4place recaros front and rear , a digital dash and steering wheel with radio/etc buttons , and more extreme body work then this car has

Interesting roof. Never seen that one before. Wonder how steady that thing is resting down there and heading down the highway at 70-80mph...?
