I don’t care what any of you purists think. This car is awesome.
Built by Hot Rods and Custom Stuff, this car has the body of a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL with the guts of a 2004 Mercedes SL600.
Of course they had to do a lot of bodywork to make the body fit the frame. Of course they had to do a lot of other work such as make custom wheels that look old school but actually accomodate modern, low-profile tires. Of course the car is deceivingly bigger than it really looks.
The only thing I don’t like is the name. Mercedes-Bent? Really?
