Need help ID'ing this car. Got in on a half card and it's not stamped. Thanks!

Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

I don't have a name for you, but that's a great looking car!

I think it is a Mercedes SSK. I used to have a chrome one.

According to Warman's Hot Wheels Field Guide it's a Mercedes 540K, collector #788.

That's it, 540K. Mine was chrome and had fat whitewalls. Worked well on my track. Don't know what happened to it.

I have the blue 1995 version. Didn't realize it was a Larry Wood design. Interesting.
