The white car in the background looks like a Mercedes-Benz a competition version of the 300SL, though not a 300SLR, as that would have only a single bulge, on the righthand side (seen from the driver) with an oval mesh at the beginning of it

The Mercedes was my Dad's car. He built it from a burned-out Mercedes Gullwing. The number is 181, but I think they changed it for the movie. He called it an "SLS"; S being for scrap :)
