Japanese custom body kit creator, Wald International, is well known for creating some of the best looking and highest end body modification kits. The Black Bison lineup has received some of the best reviews, and rightfully so.
Wald International is now ready to add another example to its lineup, which is the Mercedes -Benz E-Class Estate Black Bison. This station wagon isn’t your everyday grocery getter, as it boasts a set of ground effects that include stylish front apron side skirts and a rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. All of the ground effects are built from fiber-reinforced plastic. Also included with the kit is a set of LED running lights that are positioned about 9 inches below the headlights, on the front apron.
Optional on this Black Bison kit is are a set of front fenders with large arc-style vents, for an additional €2,088 ($2,652) and a set of split exit stainless steel D.T.M. mufflers that integrate perfectly with the cutouts in the kit’s rear bumper. The replacement mufflers can be had for €2,530 ($3,214). There is also a lowering kit and replacement pedal kit offered as optional equipment, but Wald does not list a price for them yet.
Unfortunately, there is no additional bite to go along with all of this bark, as Wald does not offer any engine upgrades for this kit. This means the E-Class Wagon will still have its 3.5-liter V-6 engine that cranks out 302 ponies at 6,500 rpm and 273 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 rpm. That is plenty of power to get this wagon moving, but some extra mods to help it move as fast as it looks would be nice.
The base kit – LED running lights, side skirts, front apron and rear bumper – runs €5,062 ($6,430). Add in the base MSRP of the E-Class Wagon ($57,150) and this entire build will set you back at least $63,580 and as much as $69,446, if you opt for the custom muffler and fender vents.
