Fresh off the craziest Porsche 911 color combo I’ve ever seen, today we have a Mercedes-Benz that is ready to join the party. This 1993 600SL looks innocent enough on the outside, but once you open those doors, the 1990s slap you right in the face. The dealer in Germany is claiming this is a one-off pre-merger AMG and while I’m normally skeptical of any dealer claim, I think I am buying this story. Although that is the only thing I’m buying once you see the asking price. Hold on.

On the outside, it’s got some period AMG bodywork with the impressive three-piece 18″ AMG wheels. One interesting thing is that this car has some 1999-2002 taillights on it, which to me look a little odd given the pre-facelift bodywork. However, we are all here for what is inside. Everything is turquoise and what is not turquoise is wood. Even the AMG-branded floor mats are turquoise. If that wasn’t enough the optional, and frankly unusable, rear jump seats are wrapped in turquoise leather. It’s a lot, but I think I could deal with it. This falls into the acceptable category for me given the AMG history and raising value of the M120 cars.
However, this is not cheap. Nearly $80,000 for a SL600 with no performance modifications is top of the charts, but how do you price a possible one of one build? I think it finds a home with an eccentric collector, but it sure won’t be with me.
