- 1000 SEC

Looking throught the "don't freak lambo doors" thread. Found this on the linked site, all I can say is wow what a car. Too bad they only made so few of them.

There seems to have been so many great custom jobs done on W126 cars but sadly not on the W140 :(

Yea I think it looks a bit funny from the outside but that interior is a place I'd want to sit.

cos the good times ended in the late 80s when the stock market crashed...i guess extravagance and showing off of the 80s died as well...and of course the w140 was a more 'sensible' design...

The Styling Garage in Bremen (SGS) always had a fine reputation for modifying the W126 cars.

This graphically illustrates the difference between modifying and pimping the car.

Those big ROYALES are really amazing, but not for the autocross.

In fact thats one of the key reasons that often sited for the W140 being such a poor seller that it was designed in the mid to late 1980's and came along as the car of a time that had passed.
