The Mercedes E-Class isn’t exactly an aftermarket favorite, but that doesn’t mean that any program built for it isn’t worth mentioning.

Prior Design has built many programs over the years and it’s done pretty well on a lot of them. But if you needed any more proof of Prior Design’s capabilities, look no further than what it did for the E-Class Coupe.

We’ve always had a fascination for matte paintwork on a car and while most of them have featured matte black, this matte-brown look Prior Design gave the E-Class Coupe just exudes star quality.

On top of that, Prior Design developed a pretty aggressive body kit with pieces made entirely out of Dura Flex fiber-reinforced plastic. The components aren’t flashy but they do have a look of sportiness that adds to the aggressive look of the E-Class Coupe.

And the best part is that you only need to shell out €8,000 ($10,460) for the PD850 body kit. It’s a reasonable price for a kit like this, especially if you already have an E-Class Coupe that’s just waiting to be treated to some Prior Design lovin’.

You don’t need to convince us about the merits of having a car dressed in matte finish. We’ve always had high praise for it but when you can produce a matte brown finish that glistens enough under the sun to exude that copper-like look, then we’re on-board all the way.

Other Custom Details

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
