Not a Lorinser front bumper on it.
LOOSE the friken gold arches
But the 200mph/300kph speedo is pretty damn cool.
Lorinser could do those speedos in conjunction with a 300kph geard diff so that could be a nice surprise .

I like the contrasting piping of the interior. :thumbsup:



This car, whith the same pictures, has been up for sale before.

There are several inaccuracies in his description, especially caliming a 300 hp 5.0L engine and that MB did not offer sunroofs.

The car has a lot of neat stuff, including the speakers mounted to the side of the door sills (upper right picture below), that are all specific Lorinser items.

Hi, Just thought I would mention that I bought this car off eBay and have started a forum thread on it.
http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126-s-se-sec-sel-sd/1446405-1983-euro-500-sec-lorinser-post.html
I read this thread and a lot of others before buying the car. Even with all the red flags I went ahead. Why? Because I liked the car and thought it would be fun. This is my first Mercedes (if you don't count my previous Merchevy - 1968 250S with a later Chevy S10 engine. - DON'T ASK? LOL)

The pictures that were posted on eBay were taken in California and were the ones the Oregon buyer was looking at when he bought the Lorinser in 2004. What the vehicle was in 2004 and now 5 years later? It has 12,223 more miles on it and is more tired and used. It sat outside in Oregon wet for 2 years not running and the weather took its toll on the chrome plating on the wheels and the gold anodised trim is flaking and pealing. No real loss unless you think bling makes this car look better.

Anyway, I will be posting to my thread as I go along. I am going to be disappointed at times and pleasantly surprised at times. Follow along and see if I made a good buy or if those that passed it up made the right decision.

DAZ

Congratulations! and welcome to the club. You will enjoy this board, most of us spend the better most of our spare (and not so spare) time here. I liked the look of your car when I first posted this thread, and I am sure you have a very unique piece of history. Of course, you need to show us lots of pics so we can enjoy it too!
