    My Fantasy Mercedes-Benz: 1972-1980 C116

    The W116 S-Class is my favorite S-Class ever. There is just something about that cars '70s styling which I like so much. For MB, it was revolutionary as it determined the style of all Mercedes' after it up to the mid 1990s. Things like the classic orange speedometer needle all debuted in the W116 S-Class.

    Mercedes had a coupe version called the SLC. I however thought a coupe that looked pretty much like the W116 S-Class would look interesting. Here's my fantasy Mercedes:





    Of course the top model would be the 450SEC 6.9. And the USA would still get the 300SDC Turbodiesel Coupe.

    well, i started off with your original....i then used gimp to change the color.....than i opened up regular paint and started blacking out everything around it..... next i started adding ground effects not putting all the detail in it, if you look closely i use maybe five different greens for the bodykits all around it... because its a gif image moving fast i don't half to worry about people noticing small things.... after i was threw i used the software unfreeze to animate the pictures back and forward...try it some time

    The SLC coupe looked different from the S, but was considered the coupe version by MB.

    Exactly. Those SLC's were nice too, but I always wanted a coupe that was based off the W116 platform (S-Class).

    The SLC was code-named C107 and that meant that it used an extended platform of the R107 (SL) from that era.
