The Mercedes E-Class is a luxury car normally reserved for suit-wearing, business types who know how to ride around in style. The car itself already sports a sleek and stylish design that underscores the class of its Mercedes badge.
But, and there’s always a but, the Mercedes E-Class isn’t exempt from aftermarket programs, especially if said aftermarket company can build a complementary kit that improves the luxury car’s looks while keeping its design spirit intact.
That’s where German Special Customs come into the picture. We’ve seen these fellas work on Mercedes models before, most recently on the 2013 CLS63 AMG.
This time around, it went to work on the E-Class, fitting it with an aggressive aerodynamic package that includes a plethora of new components, a lot of which were made from carbon fiber.
It certainly goes without saying the end product, judging by the photos GSC released, does remarkable justice to keeping the E-Class’ style going while adding a touch of panache to it.
Click past the jump to see what components GSC added into the Mercedes E-Class
The Front End
Notice how this E-Class looks a little meaner than the standard model, like it’s ready to throw down at a moment’s notice? That look isn’t an accident because of the kit GSC added to the front end. First, GSC installed a ventilated carbon hood. Then it replaced the standard fenders with ones that have gills on them. There’s also a new and deeper front bumper with LED daytime running lights, a front spoiler and angular side skirts.
The Rear End
At the back, the rear is distinctly different; something GSC did by putting in a carbon-fiber trunk-lid spoiler, a new rear bumper with air outlets and a pretty large diffuser. Plus, there’s a new exhaust system with quad tailpipes, giving the overall look of a luxury car that means serious business.
