Mercedes-Benz E500 Coupe by M&D Exclusive Cardesign

M&D Exclusive Cardesign is a young company with no impressive background but with lots of potential. They transform a series production vehicle into an individual athlete with dynamic charisma and a unique character and their single goal is to gain the trust of the customers. Their latest project is based on a 2009 model of the Mercedes-Benz E500 Coupe.

When it came out of the factory gates, the Mercedes-Benz E500 Coupe, was wearing an obsidian black metallic paint. Well, the guys at M&D thought to do exactly the opposite. They switched to calcite white, so that the black “swan” became more innocent. Black isn’t entirely given up as the coupe rides on a set of black 20 inch PD1 alloy wheels. The vehicle received a wide body kit containing a front bumper bar, engine hood attachment, red front spoiler and new fenders. For some extra look, the tuner added some curved side skirts, a trunk cover spoiler and a modified rear fender skirt with built-in diffuser.

The production model Mercedes-Benz E500 Coupe is powered by a V8 5.5-liter engine producing 387 HP (285 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque. After M&D did a software optimization, the same engine type produces 401 HP (295 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The power is increased thanks to a stainless steel sports exhaust system with the end pipes borrowed from an SL65 AMG. There are some small changes on the inside, too. On the whole, the car looks great, and its owner is most likely a satisfied man.
