When we last wrote about this 2JZ powered Mercedes 500SL the sellers had only a few images and basic details. Since then Power Vehicles have uploaded a huge photo album (153 photos) and more stats of the Mercedes to their Facebook page. The car is a 1991 Mercedes 500SL convertible that has been converted to hard top only. Powering the car is a 600 horsepower 2JZ-GTE with a HKS T45S turbocharger connected to a Getrag six-speed transmission. The rear end and LSD is still the stock Mercedes 500SL but a Supra driveshaft was custom cut to fit. Power Vehicles claims the previous owner spent 8,000,000 JPY ($66,534) building the car. They are asking around 2,700,000 JPY ($22,455) to sell the car.
