Custom Off-Road SLK

so this vehicle was in the building today, I've been told that the customer has been driving this vehicle around the world, it's a W170 SLK shell on a short-wheelbase G-Wagon chassis.

I've read many stories about his travels. Very interesting car and owner.

How did it end up in Canada is my question ...

That car belongs (belonged) to Jim Rogers, a great investor and author of many book including The Adventure Capitalist, which describes his 2yr journey around the world in this very car.

This is the most disgusting POS yet. I would like it more if it was a real SLK modified for offroad, not a shell on a different chassis. He should of stuck with:



or a custom 911 4x4 ( still riding on its original chassis.)



Original cars customed out for offroad= cool. shells on other cars for offroad= Ugly POS as above.

it also has/had a trailer it towed behind it, which was the back half of another SLK in the same colour, since this trunk did not give enough capacity once the top was down.
