What could I expect if I bought this vehical interms of maintanance ect.

It has a 8 cylinder. It is suppose to be sport car. What could I expect?

These are great cars. I haven't owned one but I have driven several. The styling is also pretty great. Very unique. There's nothing on the read like the SLCs. These cars were used as rally cars very successfully. AS far as problems, I haven't heard anything specific to the model. Treat it as you would any older Benz. Have it looked over thoroughly. It should be just as durable and reliable as any other Benz.

I have owned several of these wonderful cars. Depending on where you are make sure there is no rust on the body. Check underneath the rugs make sure they are dry and in the trunk too. Air conditioning is not the greatest either. But other wise these cars are bulletproof. Good Luck and Enjoy !
