Its a C180 modified by me.Belongs to a Model who lives in lokhandwala.
The wheels and body kit is Carlsson. Told him not to put the C43 badge as it does not make any sense as there is nothing AMG on it, but he really insisted. Also put the crystal lights and the sport grill and exhaust tip and a Lorinser rear spoiler. Have got the body colored handles for him am going to install them soon.

Read again pal, it's not a AMG. It's a Carlsson body kit. I've seen this quite a few times, and yelped with joy thinking it's a C43. Always seen the car in motion, so didn't check the wheels out, which are a dead giveaway. Somebody ought to get a C220 CDI and teach this chap a lesson. Damn these models, why don't they just stick to the ramp and flashy clothes to show off.

If you guys remember that black C Class Brabus in town which was later wrecked and written off in an accident, the owner then went on to buy a C200K and fitted it with a Lorinser kit.

Hey,

Its actually quite obvious this isnt an AMG....

Mr S600 seems to have something to do with every benz with a body kit in the city! :P

I actually really like the side u pic jesal... the dark B pillar and door handles seem to give the car a DTM feel... especially coz the camera angle seems to make the car look longer/lower.
