original site in polish translated http://forum.streetracing.pl/viewtopic.php?t=1879

Here is a rough translation/interpretation of most of the answers to questions that people had in the original forum.


Here goes:

--------------
Like I said before but nobody believed me, here are the first pics of the first SLR in Poland. My buddy Robert built the first replica of this car, he put in over 2 years of daily hard work


Tak jak juz kiedys pisalem, ale nikt nie chcial mi uwierzyc, wiec prezentuje zdjecia pierwszego Mercedesa SLR w Polsce.
Premiera tego auta odbedzie sie dopiero za rok, ale moj kolega Robert zrobil pierwsza replike tego auta. Wlozyl w to auto ponad 2 lata codziennej ciezkiej pracy.

-------------

It's all custom, it used to be a Mercedes 500 SEC from 1988, the car is not aluminium, but some parts are.


wszystko handwerk
byl to mercedes 500 SEC z roku 1988
samochod jest ze stali, nie z aluminium, ale niektore czesci nadwozia ma z aluminium


--------------

The proportions are the same to the centimeter of the original. Robert was at the showing of the car and measured everything. It only looks smaller on some of the pictures.


proporcje nie sa inne, sa co do centymetra identyczne z oryginalem
Robert byl wtedy na wystawie, gdzie stal ten prototyp i mierzyl wszystko... na tych zdjeciach tylko tak wyglada jakby byl mniejszy


-----------------

Some guy says the only thing that I would change is to pain the rear lights red like the original

Homeboy replies with, the lights in the original are white also, they turn red when the handbrake is applied. The car is metal with a reinforced floor. During testing someone mentioned that it's better and stiffer than an original benz.


Jest cudowny, i jedyne co ja bym w nim zmienil to pomalowal tylne lampy na czerwono - jak w oryginale

lampy w oryginale tez sa biale, swieca sie na czerwono jak jest hamulec wcisniety
baza to Mercedes 500 SEC z silnikiem 279 KM
auto jest z blachy i ma bardzo umocniona podloge, przy badaniach facet w warsztacie powiedzial, ze jest lepszy i sztywniejszy niz oryginalny mercedes.
autko jest perfekcyjnie wykonane

--------------

The door handles are from a Barchetty and the engine cover form a S4000 CDI

klamki sa od barchetty, a pokrywa od S400 CDI

-----------------


Sql Wrote:
I wonder where he got those lamps from

Maciek

they were hand made a formed in a firm that specializes in custom work. The molds are already done, so you can make more since the molds are there

The windows were also custom made, it was hard to make the back and side windows

Sql napisal:
ciekaw jestem skad lampy wytrzasnal...

Maciek


recznie robione i tloczone w jakies firmie krakowskiej na specjalne zamowienie zrobione zostaly formy lamp, wiec mozna teraz robic te lampy hurtowo, bo forma jest

szyby tez byly robione na zamowienie, trudno bylo zrobic tylna szybe i boczne

----------------------

They have 75.000 euro into this car

robota kosztowala 75.000 euro


--------------


Don't bother me if things aren't 100% verbatim, like I said, it's a rough work. There were other things that were answered in this forum, so I won't bother reposting them.
