Mercedes SLR spotted in Sandton, South Africa

Details on This Mercedes SLR:

  • Location
    Sandton, South Africa
  • Description
    I was walking up this street and I though I saw a glimpse of an SLR so I quickly ran towards it and it actually was! It is one of only 3 in the country! The owner was just climbing into the car when I got there so I asked if I could take pictures and he said no not with me in it and then just jumped out the car for me to take a picture haha. So I just took 3 shots and let him go, nice owner though. The lighting and shadows were terrible but I hope you guys like the shot.

Haha that is a pretty good idea, just have to know someone in the licensing department to get it registered :D but I'm sure there would be a way to do it

Haha yes I do . It quite a good investment . Have a look on eBay . They go for around R3 million in the US . So , why not bring one over cause you are more likely to double you money

Thanks a lot Moegamat! I can't remember exactly where I heard this but someone told me one was going for around R10 million a little while back. I think it's time for an investment don't you think haha ;)

Thanks guys!
Cops aren't that strict which rich supercar owners as Benji said most times if they get pulled over its for them to take a picture with them

its not such a big thing down here to drive with no plates. just get a small fine and thats it, if anything at all, most of time cops will just take pics of the car
