If we didn’t know that Dreamworks Motorsports built this matte black S Coupe on our 22” Fondare in ECL forging, we’d think that this evil looking Mercedes-Benz was the work of Death Star captian, Darth Vader.
You really wouldn’t think that something this sinister looking can come from a quaint little North Carolina town, but it did. Roxboro is home to Dreaworks where the moto “from bulldozers to Bentley’s” resonates as loud as custom exhausts fitted to an insane range of cars. True customizers are rare, and Dreamworks are the cream of the crop – just check out the work on their website.
Wesley Matthews got delivery of his rare S Coupe and promptly sent the Mercedes to Dreamworks for a makeover worthy of making Darth himself jealous. The first step in joining the dark side was taking the Mercedes black and giving it the matte look that gives the Coupe the appearance of a spaceship. Up next was the legwork with the ECL forged Fondare from the Forgiato 2.0 Exotic line. All of these choices had to be very calculated because this isn’t your run of the mill S Coupe, but an Edition 1 that takes luxury to a whole new level. How about some Swarovski Crystal LED headlights and nappa leather as the icing to your German cake?
With it’s hand built 5.5 liter biturbo V-8 the Mercedes requires strength and confidence out of its wheels – a job the Fondare go above and beyond to do. Moving this spaceship requires some torque, and the familiar Mercedes powerhouse massaged by the AMG team does it well, so well that 60 mph is reached in less than 4 seconds. Wesley is a fortunate fellow and we thank him and the Dreamworks team for sharing with us this rare Mercedes with an even rarer level of craftsmanship.
