Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most celebrated luxury carmakers of all time. Associated with premium vehicles since the early days, the German firm is now one of the most successful manufacturers in the luxury market. Established as Mercedes-Benz in 1926, the company goes back to the late 1800s. Founded as Benz & Cie. in 1883, it became Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft in 1890.

Although it’s mainly know for its cars, SUV, and race cars, Mercedes-Benz also manufactures commercial vans, buses, and trucks. Its current car and SUV lineup includes no fewer than 19 nameplates, some of which go back several decades. Iconic classics from the past include the 770K, 500K, 300SL, 190SL, and successors to the current S-Class, E-Class, and C-Class models. Throughout its history, Mercedes-Benz has operated factories in 30 countries spread over five continents.

This restomod is so special, it broke cover wearing a camo livery

The overflow of Porsche restomods of the last handful of years has us yearning for something different and this ’80s Mercedes-Benz SL with wide, race car-esque arches and seriously fat tires that wrap equally generous rims is the perfect antidote to the Porsche restomod craze. Built by Mechantronik, it’s been seen burning rubber throughout Germany and we think it may just be one of the coolest cars of its kind out there also because, well, we don’t really see resto-modded Mercs all that often.
