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.
