Never heard of a Carlsson R129 with a 5.5L M119 engine. Didn't think Carlsson went back as far as the early '90s.

It does look legit though, but only thorough documentation and a full inspection can unravel this mystery.







It's got the wheels and it also looks like the exhaust has been modified.

I did a fair bit of hunting and found that carlsson still offers suspension mods for R129's and cams for the 300, but nothing on displacement enlargments.
