Dude, that's just an E Class. Hear this. Even Rolls Royces have been converted into pickup trucks. The Rolls Royce company was not really amused.

Hey S350, thats nothing. A Maharajah who had gone to London to book a Rolls Royce was insulted by the company. And you know what he did? He bought 12 brand new Rolls Royces and used them as garbage trucks in India. And only after did RR apologise, he stopped using them as garbage trucks.


"Once what happened was that a maharaja of Bharatpur was snubbed by an insolent young Rolls Royce salesman. It hurt the Jat's pride immensely, and to counter that, he brought a whole fleet of Rolls Royces. And guess what he did with them? He made them Bharatpur's garbage collecting vehicles!"
- http://heritagehotels.com/rajasthancity/bha-about.htm



"Once when the Rolls-Royce firm delayed sending mechanics to his capital to rectify small faults in the cars, the maharaja threatened to convert all his Rolls-Royces into garbage carriers. Lest the car lose its "aura" as the automobile for the super rich, the car-makers sent a group of mechanics at the earliest to Bharatpur."

Hey S350L,

Well to do that to a merc is blasphemy.
However, if it wasnt a merc i would say it is a pretty decent looking car!...much better than any extended cab pickup!
