    A 507 on a Z8 would be interesting, but we are talking a destroyed 507 that is worth hundreds of thousands the way it is.

    Yes, it is an SL65 as I wrote in the topic, sorry for the typo in the body. Most of the sites reported it as a 2004 Sl600 so I made that mistake in the body without realizing the typo:...

    Well I mean the basics are similar but saying it is a SL65 black series is wrong because the SL65 black series is a different car with a modified chassis from an Sl65. One is accurate, the other...

    Ya, basically the same but the black series is modified, completely different suspension, brakes, wider track, etc. Saying Sl65 black series isn't accurate as that is not what it is:
  6. W198/R121 SL: Black series? Pretty sure just the regular Sl65.

    Black series? Pretty sure just the regular Sl65.

    This is one of the coolest modern/retro swaps I've seen, I want one, I want one so badly...

    Would be a rush new cars could not match. Something about that feeling of being on the edge without anything to save you.

    I'm pretty sure the brakes, suspension, etc., are all beefed up.

    From what I understand they took the body, lengthened and widened it, and put it over the new SL frame. I may be wrong though:

    As would I, and that twin turbo V12 is really untapped.

    I can't remember the last time a car blew me away like this. It is simply amazing, it gets me aroused, not even joking. I can not even think of a BMW I would rather have than this. This car is...
