Lexus SL55 or Mercedes-Benz SC300?

I've never seen one of these at the dealer; it must be a secret collaboration between Toyota and Mercedes!

I don't think this is the high performance model as it doesn't really have enough vents.

Wow, that is a lot of work to turn a Toyota/Lexus into a fake MB AMG. Here in the USA/Socal, you can buy a real, used SL55 with the real deal 493 hp AMG engine for less than $30,000 (2003, 60K something miles). I know which I would rather own. I wonder how much the owner of the fake AMG has spent on that car.

Thumbs down

That just makes me sad. Worst part is, the 'friends' of this person probably encouraged the behavior. Enablers in destruction.

Hummmmm......... I agree. It looks like an older Lexus SC300 to me.

It looks way too busy and too many openings for vents and all that. It is a hilarious looking car. It is very comical to me. A big laugh!!!!!

I guess in most Asian countries the "excess tax" collected for the license plate in order to keep the registration current each year depends on the displacement of the engine. A true V12 AMG engine will certainly be way up there in the license plate fees each and every year no matter how old the car is. So a 3.0 liter Toyota/Lexus engine will keep the cost down. Money saved was used for all that "extra body parts attached"? Maybe think of it this way: All that modification in body parts is done ONE TIME only. While the higher extra fees paid for license plate for a much bigger engine is YEARLY forever as long as you own the car!!!

I guess for some people.........looks is everything!! How it performs against a real V12 AMG BiTurbo does not matter.
