Weird Tuning: Mercedes-Benz 90E Fastback Crossover from Russia

The Mercedes-Benz 190E is a great car, especially in Cosworth form. But not all people value the classic Merc as much as we do. Take for example this Russian owner who decided to make a one of a kind special out of the Mercedes sedan and call it the E90 crossover.

The owner of the vehicle started off by chopping the rear end of the car. He then gave increased the road height and fitted it with excessively thick bull bars. The same sort of piping was also used to create side steps and an off-roader-style spare wheel holder. From what we can tell, the alloy wheels come from an E-Class while the tail lights appear to be sourced from an S-Class (though we could be wrong).

Other bespoke items include the headlight guards and the stealth paint (or is that tar?), which in some photos looks matte, in others shiny. There’s also a roof spoiler, which appears to be made out of a skateboard with a red stripe acting as the brake light - or so it seems. Now, how about that for creativity? The sporty looking dual exhaust pipes complete the list of downgrades made to the small Mercedes sedan.
