Nope, looks more like the BARFMOBILE. Utter desecration of one of the most elegant designs put out by Mercedes.

I liked the front, but the rear looks completely out of place. Wonder what was on the designers mind when he penned the lines

That's even more saddening! That guy turned an SL500 into this ridiculous piece of plastic, carbon-fibre, whatever.

DC the "Destroyer of Cars". Why would someone want to handover a merc to DC to experiment his artistic inadequacies.?

I take it you are referring to the W126 series.. In which case it would be a 300, 420 or 500 SEL.

hehhe, had an encounter of the weird kind with this car! While comming down the south ex flyover, i spotted this monstrosity and couldn't really understand what it was. Definitely grabs attention cuz apart from mine, the new aston martin in town had also slowed down to check out what this thing was. Now that i know that it was actually "the tank" i feel real sorry!

Saw a Merc in Model Town Delhi near the lake

was standing. Ran to my car with beanstalk_230(Gaurav) and 2 more friends.

Rushed to catch it and followed it till Kingsway Camp

THe owner was a tall guy and upon humbly asking. he allowed me to take pics. I asked him about the car and he said its the s class. However I still feel its a ClS modded.

Attaching the pics.
Hope You enjoy them

Cheers

A good way to spoil a beautifull car. Why cant they concentrate on the engine instead and little on the exterior, like Brabus and other tuners.

Wouldn't agree to stock w140 to be the best looking Benz ever, (In my opinion it looked bland in comparison to the W126, from the rear the car actually looks very un-Merc like)

But then lets all have a Law banning touching iconic cars.

Interesting! The new Maxima launched last week has similar headlight treatment and shape.

When did DC execute this project?....or rather when did he execute this poor thing.

I don't see anything of that kind ever happening till mankind exists, because we all know that opinions are like.....and all that logical jazz.
