Wald International—what does that name sound like to you? If you answered “Japanese” and “tuner”, you’re absolutely right. Now, what do they have to do with Mercedes-Benz? Two words—the S-Class. Yes, these tuners from Japan are all over the S-Class, and has turned it into a radical life-form that breathes sheer awesomeness, with power to boot.
The company’s latest project is a tuning kit, aptly named Black Bison Edition, that fits well on Mercedes-Benz’s flagship S line. Included in the package is a restyled front bumper that has much larger air intake vents, similar air intakes on the sides, LED fog lights for supreme harsh-weather visibility and black finish for both the grille and fog light supports. Moving your attention to the sides, you can see a highly-sophisticated sideskirt design plus a bunch of tasty ornamental tidbits for both the front and rear windows. Riding on a really wide set of multi-spoke alloys, the end result is nothing less than radical, and provocative.
Heading over to the end product’s rear is, likewise, a new bumper design, boot lid spoiler lip plus matching ornaments for the rear window. There are air vents on both sides of the reworked rear bumper. Underneath the bumper is a diffuser with three fins, edged aggressively by four oval tailpipes—a stark semblance with the Lexus IS-F.
Rounding up the kit are front and rear parking sensors plus a generous helping of Wald and Black Bison badges. So if you’re looking to add a radical character to your S-Class, this is the look to go for.
