Oh boy! :rolleyes:

These guys have no idea what this cars is.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice Series 1 Euro, but a bit of a mess:
- Carat Deuchatelet exterior package (front spoiler, side skirts, etc.)
- Lorinser 300 km/h speedometer (Deuchatelet had their own speedo face plates)
- Standard MB cloth interior in a loaded car (lots of options for a Euro car)

The 300 kw/408 hp is a (deliberate?) misreading on their part. The 5.6L RUF/ECE engine had 300 hp and I'm guessing that this somehow made a bog standard M117 5.0L which had about 245 Hp into a 408 hp monster.

Even the AMG, 4-valve version of the 5.6L M117 claimed only 375 hp. ;)
