Benz with a Ferrari emblem?

I saw a early model Benz 4-door the other day on the freeway in So Cal; it had 4 headlights was black and had a stripe (yellow as I recall) mid-body that started at the front fender with a Ferrari emblem. The car looked to be in good shape and was not modified in any other obvious way. Was this some kind of special edition, or just someone with a warped sense of humor?

4 headlights? A W116, possibly W123?

Naaa, it was a grown man and there were no other mods; no fart can, no park bench spoiler, no body kit. Just the stripe and emblem (painted). I wish I could have gotten a pic.

Sure it wasn't a Ferrari? Didn't they make a 4 door back in the 70's?

No. The project you're thinking of was scrapped.

Ah!

Perhaps you saw one of the rare MB-Ferrari joint ventures created years ago initiated by the founder's evil twin, "Benzo" Ferrari!
