Its hard to say great things about that car. I suppose somebody will find it to their liking.

This car has been listed a couple of times in the past few months.
I'm not a fan of the Konig, but I definitely love the side view :bowdown:

looks like an "offroad" batmobile especially with the wheel/fender gaps.
Sadly an ugly looking butcher'd Merc with no style or class

I'm really surprised that I don't find this car ugly..I guess I'm impressed with the overall condition of it inside and out. The interior looks amazing..I mean..look at those seats folks!

If the rear flares were not so wide and a bit more tasteful (like the front) it would look great especially with a larger more modern wheel.

Imagine doing all that work to a 380 with manual rear windows!

If it is based off a 380 might be all buck and no fizz. Be a bit embarrassing to be taken at the lights by a toyota corolla when you are driving this thing.

Mm yeah the front flares are actually quite nice really. If the rear were the same, lose the Testarossa strakes, and the rear spoiler, add bigger wheels and it would be much better. Beauty is in the eye though as they say..

Nearly fell out of my seat thinking of this.

I've seen it advertised recently.
Almost called to look, but then I thoght what a waste of effort with that 380 engine.
And what's going on with the shag bedroom carpeting? And the illl fitting panel on the driver seatback and the loose doorcard, various loose moulding, misaligned glove box, delaminating dash wood - zebrano non less.

The only thing worth anything on this heap is the wheels that would suit 48hp's project well.

Do people still try to race at the lights? I thought they stopped doing that when Happy Days went off the air...? :D

I get that everyone has their own taste but I personally have fallen in love with the Koenig look. One thing I find surprising is such an outrageous exterior and it retains its rather bland, sensible interior.

Anyway, rare doesn't equal valuable but I am going to start a koenig collection anyway :D

OH and why a 380 :crybaby2:
