Fernando Alvarez: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250

Fernando Alvarez has been into cars ever since he can remember. "My first car was a 1997 Honda Accord," he mentions, "which I grew to love and enjoy since it wasn't the typical Civic." Alvarez also didn't modify it like most other people did. Fast forward 8 years, and now he owns a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250. "I always thought this car had potential," he states, "so modifying it was just a matter of time." VIP inspired builds have always been Alvarez's favorite, and so that's the route he took with this car.
