Though it looks like the angry older brother of a PT Cruiser, the Gladiator II from ASMA-DESIGN takes that same in-your-face attitude we’ve seen on the company’s CLS and S-Class kits and grafts it on the Mercedes-Benz M-Class sport utility. Though the grille is still a bit ostentatious even for us, the larger dimensions of the M-Class make it better equipped to pull off that special ASMA brand of grand standing. Along with the new grille the Gladiator II gets new fenders, a redesigned rear bumper, different hood and sport exhaust. We’re pretty sure those wheels aren’t stock, either.

      I thought I was looking at a new Chrysler Pacifica for a second.

      I'm not getting a Mercedes Benz type feeling when I look at this. I don't mind the size of the grill but at frist glance it just looks like any custom suv at the SEMA show or something. Might be just me.... ;-)

      And here I thought MB wore the pants in the DC design family. Turns out Dodge does. I stand corrected.

      Definately has a SEMA feel to it, not my bag. (A never ending sea of 'Pimp my Whip' is why I really limit my time at SEMA these days, ho-effen-hum).

      Throw a little more bling on it and I'm sure there's a pro athlete or rapper who'd love it. Different strokes and all..

      ASMA is right - this thing took my breath away, and not in that WoW kinda way, but in the oh my god, the world is coming to an end way. It looks like its been beefed up for double duty to push downed trees off a road. Yuck.

      Ugh. Why buy a Merc if you're going to make it look so hideous.

      The designer need to get fired, looks like a PT cruiser on pimp my ride.
