Encounter: Stance Lab x Memory Fab E-Class Mercedes

.

I don’t get the chance to attend many car shows here because my work has me busy on weekends quite often, but every once in awhile I can sneak away and can attend.  Honestly, I don’t even like car shows that much, I prefer motor sport events, but I’m glad I got the chance to go to AutoCon this year because there were a number of great builds I’ve been missing out on.  Over the past couple years, the US has really stepped up in regards to build quality compared to Japan.  This car really has nothing to do with Japan, or racing for that matter, but for some reason I couldn’t stop looking at it.  Whether it was the Carlsson body kit, the prototype AirRex air-suspension, or the custom, stepped lip BBS from Memory Fab; it doesn’t really matter because the end product is beautiful.  Click past the break for more on this build.

Close up of the Carlsson front bumper.  The kit matches the sharp OEM lines of the E-class very nicely.  I’m surprised someone had a full kit released for such a new chassis.  In this shot you can get a good view of how the car sits on the 19″ BBS.

People were scoping out the custom box setup in the trunk.  I tend to take photos of what I like at car shows, and not necessarily what other people would like; call it my weak point.  I don’t give a shit about stereos and speakers, so sorry, no picture of it…If you are interested though, click this link for the SEMA build thread, or here for Stance Lab’s Facebook page.

A good look at the stepped lip.  I like the color they used for the wheels; I also like that the bolts are black and not chrome.

When Mercedes released the new E-Class I was all about it.  If I wasn’t so bent on Japanese cars I would definitely consider one for purchase as they are quite potent on the track.  Mercedes currently uses the C-Class chassis for their DTM cars, but how awesome would it be to see an E build?  Enjoy.
