Having been brutally beaten by the ugly stick, this sorry-looking SLK is up for sale.
Mercedes-Benz builds some of the world's most exclusive and beautiful cars, including machines such as the high-tech S-Class and the rapid AMG GT. The automaker spends millions of dollars and thousands of man-hours perfecting the design of its vehicles. There is massive aftermarket support for Mercedes vehicles, and while some manage to improve the looks of these premium German machines, others fail dramatically, and we don't think we've ever seen worse than this poor Mercedes-Benz SLK from Vietnam. The car has been listed for sale in the communist country for 55 million Dong, which is around $2,400. It looks terrible and we absolutely hate it.
The owner of this poor Merc obviously gave it a transnational procedure to turn it into some kind of Lamborghini, but the procedure went horribly wrong, and we've now been left with an abomination so unsightly that it could potentially cause damage to your phone or PC screen. The exterior features a pair of scissor doors that give it a SLR McLaren look. If that was the only modification, this thing would still be ok, but no, there's more.
The car also features a new bulging front end with strange headlight covers, massive fins on the front quarter panels and a massive rear wing. The side skirts are painted black, and it looks like this car has been raised a good few inches for some reason. The whole thing rolls on a set of multi-spoke alloy wheels with a red theme.
As with the exterior, the interior also gets a good helping of red, which features on the seats and steering wheel. The dashboard has been covered in some sort of pelt, and the floor mats look like they've been stolen from a local retirement village. Despite its wild looks, this SLK 230 won't be going anywhere in a hurry thanks to its 2.3-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine producing 190 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. At only $2,400, you'll be getting quite a lot of car, maybe even too much car. Aim pepper spray directly into our eyes and pull the trigger.
