How to Make a Million Bucks out of Trash: E.T. Mercedes-Benz 300D Limo


This hodgepodge of automotive parts of all sorts and sizes fused onto the welded bodies of two Mercedes-Benz 300TD estates of the early 1980s, is up for auction at eBay. The asking price is probably even more ridiculous than the 'Thing's' looks: just under a million US dollars - $950,000 or about €770,000 at today's exchange rates, to be exact.

The extra-terrestrial Mercedes diesel model is the work of one Antti Rahko. The 10-seater model measures a whopping 29 feet in length (or close to 8.9 meters) and tips the scales at a scary 7,500 lbs or about 3,402 kilograms, featuring parts from more than 40 cars including 86 lights and 36 mirrors.
