@jago_mbit also claims it has a factory air suspension.
Extremely rare item, especially in NOS condition. One thing not seen in the pictures or seen being mentioned is the missing camshaft. If the M103 was anything like my 2.6 M102 Brabus head, it was converted to a mechanically adjusted lifter set up.
@edand Euro motors were higher compression. I’m going by memory here, but the US spec 16v’s were rated in the 150’s hp while the Euro model was around 185hp.
Hello seller, is this motor out of a US spec or a Euro spec 16V? I know the US spec is lower performance compared to the Euro version.
This is a spoiler designed to fit the Gen 1 sedan bumper. It does not have the cut outs to go around the fog lights seen for the C126 spoiler.
@KRH1hi Kim! I just want to correct a statement about the front bumper. The version you described is what was seen typically on Japanese market examples. The one pictured on the car in question is a correct style and is the “original” look.
Now back to the car being listed, the only thing that can be visibly authenticated as a real AMG piece are the wheels. The bodykit is not an authentic piece, just in the style of one. It was discussed at the previous listing. The photos of the last listing are by far one of my favorite of a w126 in AMG styling.
@Shervinburlwood was an option except for the SEC models. US spec 500’s came with burlwood as a standard package. Even the Euro market 280’s could be optioned with burlwood.
As to the car being listed, I think it would look much better had it been equipped with the proper wheels for a pre-1986 version. Basketweave Rials, BBS or even the 5 spoke ATS AMG wheels would have pulled off the look better. Thin saying this while I acknowledge that the 3 piece AMG wheels are my all-time favorite wheels. As to the steering wheel, that style was not involved with AMG’s styling. The version 2 which the wheel is came out in the late 80’s.
@pcm1 understood. I still didn’t get an answer to my original question. I’m trying to zoom in on the pictures and I feel it’s a one piece bumper and spoiler. Can you verify that the bumper does in fact have metal trim that was painted over?
LOVE the look of the car! Curious, did this car have Gen 2 Euro bumpers installed with genuine AMG spoilers? Are the chrome trim on the bumpers painted or is it integrated as one piece?
