We’re getting kind of old to fall for that “come to the dark side, we have cookies” bit, but we must confess that Famous Parts’ latest project could make us jump right in... without a parachute.
Paint a stock Mercedes-Benz CL 500 black and you already have a fast and mean looking car. Take it over to Famous Parts for an overhaul and a matte black “respray” and you’re the proud owner of a vehicle that would make even Darth Vader lose its temper.

Getting back to our car in question, besides the mean looking wide body kit and the “Moonshine Deep Black Matte” wrapping, the Stuttgart-built luxury coupe gained a revised set of headlights, genuine Brabus Monoblock E 21-inch rims, Continental Sport Contact tires and an AMG sports exhaust system.

To further enhance the car’s aggressive looks, Famous Parts also opted to lower the chassis using an “in-house electronic lowering module”. And you know what the good news is? This blackened Mercedes CL 500 is for sale!
