D4M LO E320

Remember the D4M LO 964; the Porsche on hydraulics that caused so much controversy and polarisation? Well, here's what that car's builder, John Peden, did next...
This all happened around a year or so ago. John had owned this Mercedes E320 for a while, running hydraulic suspension but otherwise largely standard. It was the influence of his artistic buddy Esther that inspired him to transform it into the large toy that it is today. It's got an airbrushed snakes 'n' ladders board on the roof and a secret compartment in the boot full of crisps and sweets, as well as cartoonish turquoise paintwork, Porsche Cup eighteens and, of course, the juiced stance. Sometimes it's good not to take yourself too seriously.
