I really don't understand doing this. If a person is informed enough to know the meaning of AMG they're informed enough to know the model designations.
What is wrong with owning a plain old SL? It's a fine car.
Maybe the SL had an AMG package. My friends has an slk350 with amg package and it comes from the factory with the AMG badging
Nah, comes from the dealer with AMG badges, maybe, but the factory does not ship any car badged as AMG unless it was built as "AMG" - which means engine and transmission at the very least.
If you look in the current brochures, they all specify the body kits as "Sports Package" - or "AMG Appearance Packages"..
You did, and it still makes me laugh! Of course, you do have a smarter than usual son as well!I may have told this before, but a couple of years ago, i was walking with my then 7 year old and a black SL 55 sped past. So i said "look, that chap who had the CLS has now a SL55!!"
My son, non chalantly replied "its a fake, daddy. Look at the body kit and the exhaust pipes. It is not a SL 55 and that man has no shame!!":biglaugh:
