Oh dear. We were hoping it wouldn't turn out like this, but true to his form Japanese clothing tycoon Nigo has defiled yet another super-rare automobile.
A couple of weeks ago we reported that Nigo had ordered AMG to drop a six-litre V8 into a 300SL Gullwing. That's applecart-upsetting news right there, but we were cool with it - on the proviso that the Gullwing's sumptuous exterior remained unmolested.
Unfortunately it wasn't to be so. Nigo's gone and wrapped the entire thing in his signature camouflage print and slapped a set of the most unflattering wheels on it. We know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in reflecting on what he has done to the latest addition to his fleet, we strongly suspect Nigo's legally blind. Or at least high.
More classic-car carnage after the jump.
