This Classic Mercedes Is The Ultimate Retro Desert Cruiser

Classic Cars

Way cooler than a camel.

The car scene in the Middle East is undoubtedly one of the coolest in the world. From the insane supercar police vehicles of the UAE, to the Lebanese tuning scene and the insane drifters of Saudi Arabia, it’s quite clear that the region is home to some very serious car enthusiasts. It’s this strong enthusiasm for all things cars in the Middle East that led to the creation of this ridiculously awesome 1991 Mercedes Benz 300SE. This sweet classic Mercedes-Benz has been kitted out for classy desert driving.

The suspension has been lifted, yellow rally lights have been fitted on the front bumper and the car sits on big chunky tires. The interior on this 300SE is also in immaculate condition considering its age. This Mercedes is not so much of a performance vehicle with its 3.0 liter straight-six M103 engine that produces 188 hp. However, when it comes to classy vehicles that you’d want to cruise in through sandy desert roads, this unique 300SE certainly does the trick. It also happens to be up for sale in the United Arab Emirates for $12,000.
