Is 507 well over 500?
No - that would be "just over". It is also impossible to get 10.4l/100km from that engine.

No he's said time and time again he's got a V8, so the E60 is out...

Maybe AMG ?

I second that *I think*. I used to have a two seater, same weight, same engine.

I'd guess Alpina B7 bi-turbo?

Re: Eh... Why is this car cheap as chips?

Awesome car, but '09 B7 was the E65 with a SC (that would fit the bill actually)

The biturbo F01 was after 2010 I think.

Followed one on the motorway on Sunday - black with silver stripes. Superb looking machine - had real presence - with the passengers all looking very relaxed.

B7 only come with the H1 engine - which although they dyno around 530ps are officially stated as "only" 500ps. (Alpina will build half a dozen "production" engines - dyno them - and then use the lowest figure as the stated output. The SC engines were the last handbuilt engines to come out of Buchloe.)

No - this is EF's new quiz show "Through the Garage Keyhole" - the clues are all there: family saloon, over 500ps, geeky knowledge of engine codes.

Got it! It's a Tesla Model S P85D, isn't it!? (The 2009 bit was a red herring.)

Kerbweights aren't right for the E, CLS or S 63...

I'm guessing a Jag XFR - kerbweight of 1960kg is right, V8, 510 CV.

Re: Eh... Why is this car cheap as chips?

I'm guessing a Panamera without running the numbers, it just feels like a good fit.

a) a Panamera is way more heavy.
b) nothing says "hairdresser" like a white SUV...

a) Trev, you got it two weeks ago with the B5s. Competition closed.
b) A white SLK screams "hairdresser".
c) I'm sure a Jeep going for a quarter of market value wouldn't be a scam. At all.

Re: Eh... Why is this car cheap as chips?

I don't think it's a scam, the Km and the price are the same, so it's very much possible that whoever posted it is a total imbecile
