A chrome Mercedes S63 AMG was spotted in a baseball practice of the Tigers.

Can you guess who owns this shiny metallic Mercedes? Hints: He’s a baseball star and a pitcher.

According to Chris Iott, a baseball reporter, the Mercedes S63 AMG in the photo belongs to Alfredo Simon—the pitcher of the Detroit Tigers in the Major League Baseball.

A closer look at the shiny body of Simon’s Mercedes S63 AMG.

One thing very noticeable in the car is its silvery finish, which left some of the people in social media guessing. So, Iott asked Simon what color is it to quell the questions, the baseball star replied, “Chrome.”

The work on the Mercedes S63 AMG of Simon was unique in some way because the S-Class is rarely seen with this finish. However, although some observers may find it very stunning because of the way it plays with the light in its surroundings, some motorists might find it distracting because of the glare it produces under the sun.
