UGGGGGGHHHHHHHH, what an utterly tasteless modification! Stock W140's are the best looking Benz' ever. All that he could have done is give it a set of meaty alloys and a deep paint job.

There ought to be a law against messing up iconic cars.

Though the front looks okay to me, overall its a very messy job, i say. The owner has spent big bucks to get this merc, and then some more to bring it down to nothing but a metal tumbrel. May be the car must have had a major accident in the past, that lead the owner do this freaky job; may be.

THe owner doesnt know how to drive a car. His driver was driving at speeds of 40 max.
His other car ( and the only car was the ZEN)

His driver banged the door into the wall of the garage when he opened it.
Even i feel the modification is not worth it.Modying THE TANK is one of the worst things you could ever do towards the respect of the 3 pointer.

The guy just got the car and did not even have a place to keep it. So just parked it into his 3 mtr garage with more than half the car coming outside.

The car had no exhaust note but the ICE which he was playing sounded quite good.

It was in some tacky street in Kingsway camp. Ahead of the turn towards mukherjee nagar

I like the tail lights. Its got a slight futuristic touch to it.

But overall the car looks horrendous. The front bumper looks damn ugly. Resembles a bull dozer. What a waste of moolah. Another car axed by DC.

This just reminded me of the day I almost broke into tears when I first saw this "modification". The original car was an immaculate fully loaded 400SEL W126 black in colour and one of the best cars I've ever driven.

Words cannot describe how angry I was when I realised that a car I loved had been turned into a monstrosity not fit to be driven on the road - I actually had to drive this car from Gurgaon to Delhi for the original customer and its the only time I wished that a car had JET BLACK tints on it so that no one could see me driving it.

Worst possible design and being in the car business I can also say it was the worst modification job from every possible angle - safety, driveability and taste.

Disgusting !!

I guess DC spent a lil too much time in his paint booth inhaling stuff before he sat down to design this.
