Hold your judgements right there.

Yes, it’s a very, very, very, odd piece of kit from an era that would make Don Johnson proud. And why would one want to ruin a 107 bodied Mercedes? First, this is not some Bradley GT-like body kit add-on, but a creative (in a German way) flamboyancy that could only happen in the early 1980’s. Regardless, this a tuner time-piece that has to be accepted for what it is. That said, this is a real deal Koening Tuning super car that packs a stomping (for 1982) 350hp in it’s supercharged v8. Original LSD, full Koening leather power sport seats, quick steering rack, BBS wheels, Nardi wheel, etc…

We’ve been watching this particular car for months now and it could be an interesting investment, way ahead of the curve or at the very least, something that will surely get all the attention any where it’s driven. Park next to the Corvettes and show them what a real v8 can do. Make sure to wear your Members Only jacket and Reeboks.

Do you research on Koening first. Some info on Koenig here.

The car is located in Joliet, IL 815.725.0850
