Be it for a wedding or for a high-powered executive, there’s a time and a place for a stretched Mercedes S-Class. And with MB already selling a long wheelbase version of the E-Class in China, one has to admit there’s demand for such a product. But a stretched E-Class wagon?

That’s right, Mercedes tuner Binz has just announced it will offer an XTEND version of the E-Class Estate, stretching a total of 19-feet with 12-feet of space between the wheels.

Binz will offer the conversion for E250 CDI and E350 CDI diesel models as well as the E500, with pricing starting at a rather significant €121,950 (roughly $160,000).
