The W124 is undoubtedly one of the most well-built offerings from Mercedes. These cars became instant favorites among buyers all across the world and all major tuners in the era gave it their own flare. While the most notable is the Hammer from AMG, examples such as this Lorinser are equally as rare on the market today. The M103 inline-6 cylinder remains unmodified and is known for its longevity and reliability so buyers looking for something unique and Sacco-designed should take a closer look. In the 90’s, Lorinser was a highly desired tuning company and numerous celebrities got in on the action including Michael Jordan, Mike Tyson, and Paul McCartney. Even today, Lorinser is producing unique Mercedes builds and has its own classic center in Germany. You won’t be seeing any other W124 Lorinsers on your daily commute so dare to be different and make the 90’s great again.
