There was one of these (Merc 170S) parked around the corner this pm. Immaculate. What a beauty!

seems to be a new type of mod designed to look like real carbon fibre

btw seems to be a trend of having a black stripe running from bonnet across roof and over the boot against a white body...seen it on a Bently continental GT, Nissan GTR and a lambo....often see them driving around town together

Those have been around for 40 years. We used to call them "racing stripes" Cobra's were famous for them back in the 60's

Together? Perhaps a bunch of friends over from the Gulf for the summer.

This time of year hordes of them turn the streets of SW1/3/7 into their personal racetrack :roll:
