Benz from Hell

Warum begaffen alle diesen Mercedes? Weil die Lenkerin mehr Geld als Geschmack hat. Deshalb!

25.09.14, 19:23 30.09.14, 11:10


«Il buon gusto no esiste» – guter Geschmack existiert nicht. Dieses italienische Sprichwort ist eine vorzügliche Maxime, denn Stil lässt sich in der Tat nicht vorschreiben. Mir gefallen meine rosa Vorhänge, die so prima zum violetten Teppich passen. Dir nicht. Niemand kommt deswegen zu Schaden. Alle können damit leben. Schön.

Doch manchmal ist der Sündenfall so gross, dass Toleranz auch nichts mehr nützt. Dann etwa, wenn eine Person ihre unübersehbare Opulenz offensiv zur Schau stellen will, sich dafür aber eines aussergewöhnlich geschmacklosen Mittels bedient. So wie unlängst im Westlondoner Stadtteil Knightsbridge, wo staunenden Passanten dieses Auto ins Auge stach:

This unique Mercedes was stopping traffic yesterday (Mon) after its owner had the covered in diamonds. The diesel Mercedes CLS is thought to be owned by a Russian woman who lives in London. And she has managed to outdo the Arab playboys who drive around the capital by having her car covered in thousands of Swarovski diamonds. The Mercedes caused a stir yesterday (Mon) when it was parked outside a restaurant on Basil Street, near Harrods in Knightsbridge.

Immerhin hat sie es geschafft, den Playboys vom Golf die Schau zu stehlen, die ihre Sportwagen so gerne durch West-London paradieren (und die Einheimischen ebenfalls gehörig nerven).

Die Besitzerin scheint sogar für Retusche-Nachschub gesorgt zu haben –  falls beim Parkieren der eine oder andere Strassstein verloren geht.

    Highlight Na, wenn schon denn schon. Wenn man jetzt da noch mit einem solchen Kleid aussteigt passt das doch ausgezeichnet. Was wäre denn "Geschmack"? Resp. wer hat die Deutungshoheit?

Im Camper von 0 auf 100 in 5 Sekunden? Doch, das geht!

Auf diese Idee kommt nicht jeder: Einen 1972er Winnebago-Camper zu einem 900 PS starken Monstrum umzubauen. Ein Gefährt, das in 3,2 Sekunden einen 0-50 mph Sprint hinlegen kann (die genauen Zahlen für den Euro-Standard 0-100 km/h liegen nicht vor, doch viel mehr als 5 Sekunden sollen das nicht sein, versichert man uns). Selbst für die legendären Tuner der Ringbrothers Garage ist ein solches Projekt eher, sagen wir mal, exzentrisch.

Jim und Mike Ring haben über die Jahre einen gehörigen Ruf …
