Mercedes-Benz cars are pretty plush, luxurious vehicles, though even the foremost optioned-out S category very cannot compete with the pure comfort and magnificence of a personal jet, however this Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van will.
The JetVan Sprinter was specially outfitted by Ventura, California-based Becker Automotive style for show at the ny Auto Show. It brings a level of luxury that not even the typical limousine can give.
The spacious interior, that was purpose-built to emulate the inside of a personal aircraft, is appointed in Townsend leather with Golden Birdseye Maple trim. There are four reclining, first-class-style leather seats with every kind of legroom.
Those seats are outfitted with adjustable leg supports, lumbar supports, massage systems and heating. The electronics package puts most home entertainment systems to shame. A center-mounted, 40-inch high-definition Runco LCD TV is assisted by a one,300-watt 7.1 channel speaker system drawing its sound waves from multi-channel McIntosh amplifiers.
If work is a lot of your issue, the Becker Sprinter incorporates a 500-GB on-board laptop with wireless 4G connectivity. a collection of fold-out writing tables enable you to use a laptop computer or actual notebook. All functions – seats, entertainment, computers, lighting, blinds etcm, are controlled by six-inch Creston touchscreens located on either facet.
In terms of the van itself, the Sprinter is powered by a three.0-liter Blue TEC diesel engine. The engine is formed cleaner by approach of a Diesel Exhaust Fluid Injection (DEF) system that cuts down nitrogen emissions.
“Many of our purchasers read the Sprinter as creating an environmental statement,” said CEO Howard Becker. “They perceive the importance and also the fuel potency of a clean diesel engine, and their drivers appreciate having the ability to idle for an extended time whereas they wait outside a studio.”
We’re not too convinced that a large van loaded with significant equipment, all types of power-sucking electronics and solely four passengers may be a real environmental statement, however who would not wish to require a road trip within the back of this issue.
