The car was built because when you're a billionaire and you got nothing better to do with your money, then why wouldn't you get the oldest auto company in the world to bastardize one of its most sought-after classics? The completely camouflaged car has been equipped with completely upgraded mechanicals including a 6.0-liter V8 and we're assuming an automatic transmission.

Some things money shouldn't be able to buy, like self-respect. We could understand if an outside tuner shop created this abortion, but for Mercedes to have a hand in this is just so wrong on so many levels. [HypeBeast]
