A fury road experience in this 1982 Mercedes S-Class
The owner of this classy Mercedes S-Class found a real pot of gold. Bryce Ronsonet got this young classic in a very damaged situation, but with some pieces, love, and hard work the star’s reborn.
These 1982 wheels are visionary in modernity and technology, not to mention it's a style icon. But in Bryce's hands, this Mercedes is ready for a festival in the desert.
Considered a symbol of a new generation of luxury-class designs, the Mercedes S-Class is widely recognized for its sophisticated deets. This model was launched at the time with a new era of comfort and safety — take a look at these classic leather seats.
The restoration caught the eye of car culture photographer Larry Chen. He took these dope photos and promised a special episode about these wheels on The Hoonigans YouTube channel.
With $800 USD, Bryce slapped on a roof rack, added some lights, dropped a raspberry bomb in the interior, cut the fenders to fit the tires, and transformed a wrecked Mercedes into a rally warrior. By his words, it proves you can build a rally car for less than $1,000 USD and that you definitely don't need money to have fun.
