Hello...I have purchased a 1989 MB Koenig Custom 560SL. Got it for its unique beauty but know very little about it.

Can anyone tell me about Koenig and perhaps his work on this particular model? It is very radical design resembling Ferrari Testarossa of that year, with mostly fiberglas body, wide rear fenders, 345zr15 rear tires, BBS wheels, Recaro seats, etc.

Would appreciate anything anyone can share so can construct our "book" on this gorgeous automobile.

Thanks!

Not everyone's cup a tea, however, IMO König body kit was one of the most radical but still tastefull and in sync with original styling cues.

There was a guy in Germany that had red one... with 355 tyres at the back.

LOL I missed it to.
The link today to CL asking if it was the same car was interesting. Seller is asking too much unless it also has engine mods. Not my cup of tea either. There are couple posted in the Hall of Shame thread.

The exhaust tips are different on original post and latest CL entry... could be the different cars.

I am sure these could fetch a high priced tag for right buyers if overall codition is satisfactory

Wow! That's still for sale? I remember seeing it for sale back in March or April this year. I sorta like the look but I wouldn't have the guts to seen driving around in it.

Ha!


The posting doesn't mention the fact that the passenger side air bag is included.


Shudder.

Troll?? Looks like a grandma.. be nice. Got me doubting what the car is like if they have to use an old picture - not like every phone has a camera nowadays.

And yes I would drive that around - looks like a fun car - and being its a real merc - not some sticker and body kit power can enjoy it..
