This is a early W124 body AMG 6.0 Hammer from 1988. The expected price range at Auction was from 2,500 – 5000 Euros but sold for an astounding 84,000 Euros. At the time, it was considered the fastest passenger sedan in the world. It was faster than the Lamborghini Countach from 60-120mph.
Whats interesting about this car to me is that its a manual transmission. I have never seen an AMG car fitted this way. The AMG steering wheel and the Recaro Seats are in good condition. In typical AMG fashion, it has black AMG monoblock wheels that match the body.
