 I think the external paint is nice and the interior up dates are well executed but the wheels and the face lift G55/G63/G65 look disappoints me. Why not spend that money on a om606a update.

Re: Original or updated

I think it looks ace, but as you say it needs a better engine to match its modern looks


Its made to look like 100k but the engine would make it seem like 100k

​I am not saying 280 engines are bad but i think at least an om606 or v8

​Was it a mint starting point or kitted due to rust etc. Does anyone know the vehicle????. I have not seen it anywhere before

Re: Original or updated

Obviously a lot of time and money has been spent on 'upgrading' this W460. Perhaps it would have been better to start from a W463. ?


It's kind of lost the charm of the W460 and won't be quite there in terms of performance to meet expectations and promises of the looks.

Re: Original or updated

Yes agree totally. If it had a fast engine too it would be very nice, Or standard with a better engine it would be nice

It looks nice but as you say it would be better a mint 460 as standard


It will sell if its all mint as it looks the part when driving past. Would be nice to see it in real

Re: Original or updated

I think its too much money, £10-15 would be my best guess for its value

Rolling down the windows at the lights might give it away a bit! An electric ugrade would have been money better spent.
