LORINSER cars... did they exist? how to identify

as the topic states, i am curious if lorinser sold an slk 230. i have found images of them, but nothing saying they really exist, and specifically if they were sold in the us. also were they sold as a trim package, through dealers or as an option? etc etc. any information is appreciated.

the reasons for my question? i have what i believe is a lorinser car. the side skirts, rear bumper and wheels (18" lok3) all are lorinser parts. the rear spoiler and front bumper were stripped from my car but i assume they were as well. there are no other non factory parts on the car. with the exception of a remus exhaust.

i am curious if there is a way to identify if there is any significance to this car, other than having a few extra parts bolted on. thanks in advance!!

Maybe somebody bolted parts on like you say BUT not according to their current website.
