Quite impressive numbers. Certainly the climate and the price of fuel is helping cars survive longer in Aus.

Not counting 6.9s I've seen just in car magazines, I am aware of just 3 other people who have them. Mirafioriman, Pal and the fellow who sold me my 450SEL parts car. A few months ago I saw a blue one in very average condition near my place of work but it's not been back since. I would estimate that the number of running 6.9s in UK is under 100.

Hahaha!!!  Had you going there didn't I Geoff???  I couldn't resist adding a fictitious car at the end!  Notice the VIN?  It's 1 after the last one that was produced and I was testing Nathan to see if he'd pick it up.....  A black AMG 6.9 would be a dream, so what better car to use as a furphy??  Sorry if I was being cruel!!!   ;)  BTW I am looking at another, but it's white and it's only for parts....

Haha indeed. The sad thing is I did pick up on the vin aberration but the downside to being a public service medic is u get flogged and not enough time to check Internet. This is hy most of my posts read so badly as thy are done on mobile devices whilst I'm walking between wards!

Ps Ithat was a good one though!

a new winner, asking $135000! cough.
located in Victoria, a nice looking car. but for any 6.9 over 40k, I dont expect to see a shiny steering wheel!
everything else looks quite tidy for this Australian car.

It looks great, but yes I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 116 wheel that shiny before!

Maybe Lindsay will buy it now? Rumours are he offered the owner a blank cheque for it years ago..

Nathan did you add those pix to the wrong thread? I revived this one since I was curious about Aussie numbers. Interesting that I saw a black 6.9 years ago in Puckapunyal, Victoria. However it wasn’t originally black, so where do you add that on the list? I’m still looking for the pix in my archives...
