Boy oh boy. We’ve seen some pretty bad project cars in our time, some of which can’t be unseen. This, however, might be the most atrocious yet. The victimized vehicle comes from Bosnia, where its owner decided to transform the Mercedes sedan with some Bugatti styling. Unfortunately it just didn’t work out very well and the result is, well… horrendous.
Mercedes-Benz revealed the 2012 SLS AMG soft-top Roadster a few days ago, and this 563-hp sportscar demands a high price. Available later this year, the $183,000 Merc may be missing the signature gullwing doors, but it certainly does retain the coupe’s power and sex appeal.
For a kick-off, it is based on the SL65, which is the most powerful and the most expensive version of the SL-class. Carlsson begins by re-clothing the exterior and in the process, turns this hard-top convertible into a fixed roof coupe. The new sleek coupe styling is quite stunning, even though it looks like a Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin love child.
You know what they say; when they don’t make what you want, go ahead and build it yourself. That’s exactly what this enthusiast did with his 2005 Mercedes CLK55 AMG Cabriolet. When the CLK Black Series was introduced from 2007-2009, this enthusiast clearly wanted one, but didn’t want to spring up the money on a whole new car. So he did what every other enthusiast would do, commission a builder to turn his ’05 CLK55 to a CLK63 Black Series equivalent… or close.
One solid given in life is that with every Mercedes-Benz model, there will be a Brabus variant featuring sportier styling and outfitted with a nice set of wheels. And with all the hype surrounding Mercedes’ new CLS model, it’s no surprise that Brabus isn’t be far behind with photos of their own version of the sporty luxury sedan.
At first glance we assumed this would be another extravagant build by Mansory, this time targeting Mercedes‘ G-Class SUV. But much to our surprise, Mansory is simply announcing a new suspension option for the G-Class. Enhancing the ride comfort of Mercedes’ unique SUV, Mansory has developed an electronically controlled suspension package featuring two different shock absorber curves.
Mercedes-Benz‘s latest and greatest isn’t even out on the market yet and famed Benz-tuner Carlsson has already released renderings of what its tuning package for the styling sedan will look like. Promising to debut the CLS at the Geneva Auto Show in March, Carlsson looks to enhance the exterior and performance of the four-door coupe.
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?
Well here’s something different. If you just so happen have to be stuck with a minivan, you might as well get a luxurious one that looks cool, right? Mercedes-Benz recently released the Viano Van in Europe and German tuning house A.R.T. is releasing a Viano tuning program for early next year.
This isn’t really news, but Misha Designs has made it officially official: they are releasing a widebody kit for the Mercedes-Benz SL. In case you missed the news earlier, we revealed that iForged built an SL55 for SEMA that would sport Misha Designs’ widebody kit. Now Misha Designs has released the full specs on the styling package.
Now this is how you build a luxury sports coupe. You take what Mercedes-Benz has already done oh-so-well with their AMG Black Series vehicles – this one being a CLK63 – play on the black theme some more by making the entire car matte black, outfit it with a perfectly measured set of ADV1 wheels and have those wide fenders sit properly on the rubber.
Vincent Wong is no stranger to building killer rides to showcase his product line: iForged Wheels. There’s just no better way to show off what you can do with your wheel line than to take some of the world’s hottest cars and widen their bodies in order to fit a real fat lip underneath those fenders. After building one of the cleanest Techart GT Porsche’s we’ve ever seen, Wong has decided that this year he’ll team up with Misha Designs and widebody-out a Mercedes-Benz SL55.
