A very nasty Mercedes-Benz W140 S-class with a bad-ass body kit seen near the Worker’s Stadium in Beijing. We are great fans of the W140 and this monster is by far the best we have seen in the capital. The alloys are from Lorinser but I am not sure who made the kit. Windows were blacked out but I was able to a ‘V12’ badge on toppa the stick. This then must be the mighty S600!
The 6.0 liter ‘M120′ V12 poops out 402hp and 580nm in standard form, but usually when a tuner changed the body he would change some things on the engine too… Sadly I didn’t see any badge or tag indicating who did the work on this particular machine (Lorinser?). If you know more, please let me know in the comments.
The body kit could be from Wald, I’ve seen a few Toyota Alphards around Beijing with bodykits from them. Heres the link, the W140 looks a lot like this one.
really looxs like Wald, that is his signature style
I have a 1995 s600 in the USA that has a Lorinser kit. But those rims are suscpicious. NO raised Lorinser script logo on the rim edge. There are lots of fake Lorinser’s out there.
It’s a Wald or Wald replica front and back bumper without the side skirts. The side skirts are stock. The Wald side skirts are much much bolder and thicker, hence making the car sit lower to the ground. Maybe that is why the owner chose to not include them, but that wouldn’t make sense because it’s already sitting low with the front and back. Or maybe just wanted a front and back look only. Usually it’s the front and back that matter most visually. The side skirts do give it that “amg” boost tho so most owners get the whole package.
