IT TAKES A SPE­CIAL BREED OF EN­THU­SI­AST TO TAKE AN AMG MERCEDES TO THE FRINGES OF IM­PORT-TUNER STYLING. LUCK­ILY FOR US, ROLAND GOTINGCO IS JUST THAT TYPE.

Gotingco's back­ground in au­to­mo­tive tweak­ing and tun­ing started at a young age, and only be­came more well-rounded as years went by. “I started off mini-truck­ing,” re­calls Gotingco, think­ing back to his first ve­hi­cle. “When I turned 16, my par­ents bought me a 1986 Toy­ota long bed truck. I started mod­ding that right away. It was ac­tu­ally a wilder build than this car is now.” We would have loved to see that truck then, as the Mercedes CLK55 AMG he's built is as wild as they come.
