Wife spots one

Orange County, California - Metro Pointe at South Coast Plaza.
Saw this in the parking structure. My wife noticed it at first, and asked if it was a real AMG. The first thing I noticed: the zero missing after the 55 - the faded/dirt outline of the zero was the tip-off. Second tip-off, single-exhaust tip per side.

REALLY?!?!?! Do you really tell your friends you own an AMG?

I gotta give this one credit. They did their research so far as 2-digit AMG vs. 3-digit non-AMG is concerned.

Did it at least have the AMG package? I was getting my car serviced and noticed some new ones with the AMG package were also badged that way. I asked one of the sales guys and he said that some are received that way. Not sure if this is a 'new' trend or just a mistake by the factory. But seeing them at a dealer makes me double think.
