    Looks like a 560 SEC mercedes with an Koenig aftermarket widebody kit. It doesn't look like an AMG widebody, since the rear flares are different on those.

    The made the W126 SEC coupes from 1980 to 1992, all with V-8s. They are pretty nice cars. AMG made a 6.0L version (500SEC was 5.0L and 560SEC was 5.5L) with a wide body and manual transmission, it made 375rwhp in 1985 (the stock 5.5L v8 was 275hp and the 5.0L was 249hp at the crank).

    The AMG wide-body was a little more understated than that whacky Testarossa job, but it still looked like they grafted Starion TSI flares on it.

    Seriously considering buying this 1989 VFR400, very good nick, and only 8000 miles on the clock.
    The only problem is it's a 600 mile ride to go and view it.
    So do I take a gamble, and buy unseen, and get a courier to pick it up, or go and see it, and still pay £160 to have it delivered?

    Gotta be up Norf like.... 600 miles in any other compass direction, from colchester, would need a bathing suit...

    I didn't really rate them. the nc30 was a lot better. If it's the right money it looks like a nice clean example though.

    When I said 600 miles, I meant round trip.
