It looks like it has a hose running to the master cylinder. :confused:

That being said, this car definitely is not stock, and the interior looks kind of rough IMHO. And a 5.5? I'm not sure I'd want to touch that care without some more info!

I don't know if it's a real tuned car. The wheels are Lorinser and the Engine has Carlsson on it. It also has no body kit which I would expect from a car like this. I've seen some Carlsson cars before and they usually have from memory a blue engine block where as Brabus has a red one.

This 1990 car has 119.960 engine with CIS fuel injection.
Apparently engine has carlsson sticker that says 5.5L 405Hp....
Hard to tell why tho, it would be worth inspecting but its a bit of a long drive from where iam....

The car looks good from the outside but the upholstery could do with a renewal job as it is showing its age.

The car does use the CIS system and with its age i would avoid it. It is a troubled system and the rotoraty fuel distributer goes wrong, the air induction plate always needs adjusting and basically, unless you are a total enthusiast and DIY guy, then avoid it;)

Although i am an MB Tech and a Benz fanatic i would not want to buy one of the CIS fitted cars, just my opinion of course.
