ABC-Exclusive from Bonn in Germany was one of the companies who, together with the likes of Koenig-Specials and Gemballa, did an attempt to create a seriously ultimate wide version of the Mercedes-Benz SEC (W126). The ABC-Exclusive version of the widebody SEC featured Testarossa-type streaks just like the Koenig-Specials SEC, but in a more crude fashion remeniscent of the Koenig SL (R107). Wheel arches front- and rear were widened, a hood scoop was added (Koenig-Specials item?), front bumper with a sort of extended grille (different versions exist), rear wing (again, Koenig?) and the obvious wide Gotti wheels which were an ABC-Exclusive standard.

This apears to be the same car, for sale in Japan in early 1990s (same unique front bumper, white custom dashboard, seats with white leather and red piping).
