2012 C350 Transformed into SEMA-worthy Show Car

2012 C350 at SEMA

Custom C350 looks wicked slammed over the Work Emotion wheels.

A few years back, one of our MB World forum members had a chance to transform his 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 from your average luxury car to a stunning show car. He chronicled the entire process in a thread, walking us through each step of the build along the way, and while you might not love the “stanced” look, this is one badass C-Class show car.

The Introduction

Stock 2012 C350

This black 2012 Mercedes-Benz C350 project was introduced to us by “ricecooker713”. In the initial post, he explained his project, his inspiration and his partners for the build.

I recently purchased a 2012 C350 coupe with the intentions of it being a project. In collaboration with StanceLab and Mercedes Benz of San Francisco, we will be building the C350 for the coming up 2012 SEMA. There are big plans for this vehicle. To name is few parts, Air-Rex is providing their whole air suspension kit to lower this to the ground while sitting on Forgestars wrapped with Toyo Tires. I just placed an order with Vividracing and will be receiving a Meisterschaft GT exhaust pretty soon.

I have been in the automotive business for a good amount of time. I feel that Mercedes in the past has never developed a vehicle where the public can mod easily. BMWs has great appeal and can be customized simply/tastefully. This has been true until the W212 and W204 coupe came out. I personally hope that others will see this build and realize how great of a vehicle this coupe is and consider it when choosing between brands.

Please follow this thread to keep updated with all the mods.

Of course, he included a handful of pictures of his Benz in stock form.
