zabenz, I look very hard, constantly, plus people out there know I am looking for 116's, so I get phoned from time to time.  GrantV came to hear about this one quite by accident and tipped me off.

Does it have ABS, as the options plate suggests ? Likewise, are the badges on the rear, as it suggests they were eliminated.

Craig, yo are right, the badges are deleted as the plate suggests.  Which I love!. 

ABS... ;D ;D ;D ;D

Whaddya think of option 991 - 'Delivery to AMG for special modifications' ?

You wish ! But I don't think they did it this way. I think you had to buy the car, then arrange to get it modified by AMG.

Holy Shit!!!!!!!

You BASTARD  :D (aussie term of endearment and absolute jealousy)
And the pics keep coming

You luck lucky bastard.  What else can I say.

Congratulations Ryan. ;) That's frickin' awsome.  Remember about a year ago we said let's aim for a 6.9 by years end this year.  I went and built a house instead and you've not only beat me to a 6.9 with the rusty one, you've then also grabbed the holy grail as far as I'm concerned.  I'm stunned and just a little bit pleased for you as well  :D  I'm taking my bat and ball and going home. ;D

Actually, I'm glad to see pics of such a car in existence and in the hands of one of our members, particularly yourself.

What's with the fader controls on the dash, and the additional switches in the seats ? Chassis No ?
