Camo E-Class Panzerwagen Menaces Monaco, Max Mosley Coup d'Etat Next?

You never know where the next automotive fad may originate, but the Principality of Monaco should be able to lay claim to this sure-fire Next Big Thing: reticle-equipped camouflage Mercedes-Benz station wagons! Longtime reader Deckard spotted this W210 wagon, put two and two together, and came up with what we think is a totally plausible conspiracy theory...

Camo E-Class Panzerwagen Menaces Monaco, Max Mosley Coup d'Etat Next?


It's a Mercedes W210 (we're guessing it's a 2002 vintage, but can't really be sure) E-Class wagon, most likely an E320 which we spotted in the Principality about three weeks ago. As if that weren't enough, it's been painted a wonderful shade of desert camo, and the venerable three-pointed star has been replaced with a reticle. The identity of this car's owner is as yet unknown, but since it belongs to a Monegasque, I think we can rule out Dick Cheney (although we did people moving a man-sized vault into one of the buildings, so it's not completely impossible). Our best (and completely baseless/unsubstantiated/wildly accusatory) guess: maybe it's Max Mosley? Because when you need to carry 5 prostitutes in style, comfort, and safety, a camouflage E-Class panzer-wagen is really the only choice...
