Who knew PGA Golfer Bubba Watson was into Customized Cars?

Apr 9, 2012

PGA Golfer Bubba Watson decided to part ways with his Mercedes Benz via ebay. The 2008 Mercedes CLK63 Black Series had an original MSRP of $138,375.00 with over $34,000 in high performance upgrades is currently up for grabs. According to the ebay ad, All work was done professionally by Dyno Comp of Scottsdale, AZ with an extreme attention to detail and no expense spared. The option list is as follows:

- 6.3L 8-Cyl. AMG Hand Built 600hp+ with Renntech Mods
- Rear Wheel Drive
- Automatic Transmission 7-Speed Tip-Tronic Speedshift
- RENNTech CLK63 ECU Upgrade
- RENNTech Headers and H Pipe Exhaust System
- RENNTech Carbon Fiber Airbox

- RENNTech Brake System Upgrade
- RENNTech Carbon Fiber Front and Rear Strut Tower Braces
- Custom "Dual" Racing Stripes (stripes blended into clear coat)

- Full 3M Clear Bra Protecting hood, bumper, mirrors, fender flares, and more.
- Factory Navigation
- Power windows
- Power mirrors
- Power Locks
- Etc....
$138,375.00 Original MSRP, with less than 10,000 miles.

When the phrase "No expense spared" has been used, that's pretty much a guarantee that the owner went to the right place to have this customized. However, someone should have intervened when Bubba said "Let's put a racing spoiler on a Benz". Even though this has racing customizations done to it, no matter what you do or how hard you try, it's still a luxury car. Some folks need an honest friend in their lives, I could have saved Bubba a couple of grand on that rear spoiler.

(Love the backseats. That way you can't have a car full of people)

Guess he's enjoying General Lee's car from the Dukes of Hazzard, and figured why keep the Mercedes. Bubba- if you're reading this: Do NOT, I repeat DO NOT add a hidious rear spoiler to the Dukes of Hazzard car. Do not allow people to talk you into that. Save your $3500 towards some other type of customization- not an obnoxious rear spoiler.

Oh and the car is for sale for $84,500. Better cash in your pennies to see if you have enough...

P.S. Yes I wikipedia'd Bubba, because I had no idea he was into owning customized cars, let alone that he was a Golfer. And I thought Golfers were as square as Tiger Woods.
