Hi SteveB,Been for sale for at least 5 years. I have email correspondence with the seller dated 2013. Excerpts:
" I purchased the car in 1999 and I believe it had around 17,000 miles on it. This was my premier car and I put well over $30,000 into it. Overall the car runs very strong and it is great shape for the year and miles. Everyone has their own opinion so you'll have to see for yourself. The issues I can think of is their is a slight squeak in one of the shocks and their is a sensor going out that monitors the front wheel. It trips the suspension light on from time to time. I've put about $8,000 into the car in the last 2 years as you can see service history from Feldman's. I have 18" AMG mono block wheels with All season tires on them and the wheels on the car now I have two sets. The car is being stored this winter in my Father in Law's garage but it's only 25min away so I can access it at anytime. I don't have anymore recent pics then what I put on Craigs. If you are serious I can go over the car in person with you and you can take it for a drive. It's pulls very strong with the V12."
"the Car is all body kit which cost about $15,000 for just the parts before its painted and installed. I also have H&R lowering springs in the car which drop it about 1.5". Everything was purchased by me and installed by Mercedes, or Mercedes recommended shops."
"All fluids and plugs have been changed. I've replaced several sensors, water pump, and a lot of other things. It's a great car for someone willing to put in a little money and have one of a kind vehicle. I also had a chip in the windshield and go a brand new OEM factory windshield installed a few months ago. The squeak is from the shocks and I've had them checked out at the dealer and this is common for these cars. Functionally they are perfect but it's just a noise issue. You can verify all this from the dealer where I've had the car serviced the last 10 years. These cars are also known to have a slight leak from the power steering pump during cold weather. This is due to the gasket seal shrinking a little and so you may have to add a little power steering fluid in the spring. I also have a car cover and the original stereo deck components. "
PS In case someone wonders, the Surpa you see on the pictures puts 825HP to the Rear Wheels at 34lbs of boost....not for sale!
