Little too low for my (admittedly staid) tastes, but interesting nonetheless. Speaker setup in the dash ....oy! And that rear windshield spoiler ... adds some good downforce for better tire hookup ?!?

Thanks for sharing !

I like the trunk spoiler. Any idea if it's available?

Austin said there is a Facebook video showing the car is "bagged", so the ride height can be raised / lowered via airbags. I assume the photos are all in the max-low position.

Is that Malachite or the Emerald green? It looks close to mine and mine is the Emerald but hard to say as my color changes with light a lot.

Totally different color than yours. This car (Malachite) is also known as "Spruce Green" and is evidenced by cars such as Jimbo's.

To the best of my knowledge, no E500E (124.036) was ever produced in Emerald Green. Emerald Green has quite a fair bit of "bluish" in it, whereas Spruce Green is quite [a pleasing shade of] green.

I've seen it live a few times, airride, limited vogelaugenahorn wood, six piston AMG brakes and much more. Quite a debated car on the boards in Sweden, some like it, others don't. I think it's a bit to much here and there, but thats just me. If I just can get the license plate of the car I'll have a VIN in no time. The owner uses showplates a lot unfortunately.

It is a pleasant shade of green.
I like the third brake light . . . I have a 300ce convertible trunk with a third brake light.
hhhhm... might not be a bad idea to cut and weld that portion to a tail lifted 500e trunk?
