Old E-Class Turned into Rolls-Royce by Crazy Kazakhstanian Tuners

The E-Class is not exactly the car every rapper, basketball player and used car salesman wants to own. In other words, for lots of people the mid-size Merc is not enough. Of course, we are going to deviate this story into Rolls-Royce, somehow mentioning dictators, oversized engines and endless power reserves.

But this story isn't about real Rolls-Royces, it's about what the British brand stands for and what many people are willing to do to have their own Spirit of Extasy.

So you live in Kazakhstan, a country we have difficulty spelling and which some might associate with Borat. However, that doesn't mean you can't pretend that you are friends with P Diddy and Jacob the jeweler.

So you take an old W124 E-Class facelift from the 1990s and start figuring out how to make a Rolls-Royce. Now, there's a little bit of everything on this car, but we think the look they are going for is that of the pre-facelift Phantom. You can tell by the tiny taillights, and porthole rear windows.

As you can tell from the photo gallery below, these tuners spent a lot of time looking at photos of the Phantom they printed on A4 sheets of paper. They didn't quite get it right, but for raising the hood line by the height of a bucket, they deserve our praise.

No, really, they used a bucket to space the hood apart from the engine. The entire body kit appears to be made from fiberglass and plastic. The grille is another thing they didn't quite get right, as is the natural thickness of the coach doors.

After filler, primer and a coat of white paint, the fake Phantom looks really convincing, but they mess it up with black accents. This isn't a German tuning project from Mansory after all!
