Seller claims car has been AMG modified. Price seems steep. What you guys think?

Here's the link:

Car looks nice, but I don't think that the model is all that desirable. I'd love to see a few more pics though.

Euro-Spec, has been running "successfully" on unleaded gas.....

What the heck does that mean?

If it has the higher compression euro engine without cats, how has it been registered, and how has it been running on unleaded?

Hans Dietrich Gensher was vice chancellor and minister of foreign affairs. He never served as chancellor.

If the seller’s knowledge about the car is as accurate as his knowledge of German politics, this car is very suspect. And as noted above the entire paragraph about the engine makes no sense at all. What ‘inspection’ did the car pass sans cat? Emissions or safety or both?

I like the look of the car a lot but the seller has done a poor job with the listing.

All one Really needs to get the major benefit from lead (octane boost aside) is one, maybe two tanks of leaded gas. The lead under super heated conditions (ie, the exhaust valve and seats) forms a halide w/ the metal making it able to w/ stand far greater temps for extended durations.

Since this car is in the states and would never see extended triple digit runs as it would in Germany unleaded gas is perfectly fine.
