OK, so it's crazy expensive, and his HP claims seem very optimistic.

But man, super low miles, looks awesome, and I LOVE the rear stance...talk about aggressive!

Obviously it's an impressive car but eventually, I think that aesthetically you toeing the design line where it starts taking on the look of a tractor, IMO. I know I am probably all alone with that view but hey, just an opinion. That being said - I'd love to have it!

No way...just posting it for everoyne to see....forgot the link though, it's in Ebay Holland or something.

Too crazy even for me, plus I am not a big fan of the godzilla side strakes.

The Koenig is the car that you have to see on the road coming or going..According to my Girlfiend the photos NEVER the same as to seeing it,never project the real thing..And she is NOT car crazy but LOVES the car and proud to have it..Figuer that out:confused: Not a tracktor like at all its just hugging a lot of the road..

Hey, youre not alone. I agree with you Kalifornia. I just dont like the aesthetics of the Koenigs either... ruins the clean lines IMO. I think there are other body kits that really enhance the looks of the coupe. But like everyone else would love to have it for the engine and interior... very cool!

Latest issue of "Mercedes Enthusiast" mag from the UK has an article on a C126 Koenig resto.
Original car completely stripped down, resprayed white with a red interior...

Is it a Koenig or a 'regular" interior?

There is one of those in a junk yard here locally. I got the interior. Apparently it had a twin turbo engine that got sold right away. The rest will probably go to the crusher.
how is the Koenig body? Wrecked or decent shape? Could you PM me the junkyard name/info?

Did the interior have full recaros?
