Occasionally you come across something truly extraordinary on social media. This morning I rubbed my eyes and squinted at my iPhone and said aloud “wait what, no way”. My local cool car spotting Facebook group features posts of all sorts of interesting vehicles that pop up around DC, MD, and VA. It’s an eclectic mix of stuff to be sure. The last few spots were a brand new Bentley Continental GT, a heavily modified VW GTI, a Lexus LFA, and a… 2009 Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss!

One of 75 produced.

It was available only to the existing SLR owners and each car cost north of $1 million. Most descriptions note that the Moss was not legal for sale in the U.S. But there it is, driving amongst the masses.

Brian Phillips (@amg_bp) spotted the windscreen-less Benz from inside a Mercedes C43 AMG.

This has to rank pretty high on the OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THAT? meter. Do you have any such encounters out on the road? Share in the comments below.
