Over the years, we’ve become quite accustomed to seeing cars modified with cheap and tacky-looking “upgrades” lifted straight from the shelves of AutoZone. Quite often, the cars are too cheap – unlike this Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic Coupe.
Prices for an E400 4Matic Coupe start at over $62,000 in the United States and you’d think that owners (well, most of them anyway) would have the sense not to mess with its styling. That’s clearly not the case as the owner of this E400 has equipped it with all manner of weird changes that don’t just ruin its design but will obviously impact its resale value.
The car was recently snapped in a Lowe’s parking lot and shared to Reddit. The first area of the E400 that will catch your eye is the rear end where there is a large fixed rear wing that would be best suited to a souped-up Honda Civic from the early 2000s. The tailgate of the Mercedes has then been adorned with a plethora of chrome parts and accents while also sporting some bright red trimmings.
Elsewhere, the E-Class is rocking a bold diffuser complete with bright blue and red accents. The weird theme continues along the passenger side of the car where we can see a bright red fuel filler cap reading ‘Autobot,’ flared front and rear wheel arches finished in chrome, aftermarket skirts, some red flame decals, and a very patriotic image on the upper portion of the door.
Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find any photos of the car’s front end, although we suspect it is just as bad as the rear.
