Mercedes S-Class With Horns And Semi-Sized Exhausts Is Just Vulgar

Nearly three decades ago, the Mercedes S-Class W140 was the world’s most advanced luxury saloon.

It pioneered innovations such as double-pane window glazing, power-assisted closing doors and trunk lid, safer electric windows that would stop upon encountering resistance, and loads more. Back then, it was regarded as an over-engineered car, like most Mercs of that era that, sadly, came to an end.

You know what’s not over-engineered? This particular S500, spotted recently in San Diego, California and posted to Reddit by Animorganimate. It features multiple grotesque mods that would surely feel insulting to every single person that had a hand in designing the W140.

At the front, where its hood-mounted three-pointed star should be (it might be still there, it’s hard to tell), we spot a massive bull horn ornament, the likes of which we’re used to seeing on large pickup trucks and will make Boss Hogg proud.

Move towards the back and you’ll notice side reflectors mounted underneath the doors, followed by two large semi-like tailpipes that rise from underneath the rear bumper and stretch upwards far beyond the trunk lid. Tasty, it is not.

The only thing that’s good here is that these “mods” might be very insulting, but it seems like they could easily be removed so that the next owner won’t feel like… well, driving a normal S-Class and not something that’s the laughing stock at the parking lot.

    Finest Merc ever built. I’m a fortunate owner of a ’99 S420, simply a magnificent vehicle.
    This unit discussed here is a total fail.

    The owner could leave the keys in the ignition and nobody would steal it. Maybe drive it off a cliff.
