You may have seen them before..
Rowan Atkinson's words on his 500E are a good read.

Interestingly, the "E60" in the article is not an original E60, based on the VIN (WDB1240361C208913). It is an original E500 Limited, which was later upgrade with a 6L engine, and the Gen2 body kit. More details and history on that particular car are in this thread (http://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4130).

The reporter on the E60 AMG Limited is probably the author of this thread; http://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7004

Update: Yes, I think it is that car, Dave. (..and despite I encouraged motornoter when chatting with him on PM to find an original E60 AMG Limited - he did not)
