Brabus' luxed-up Mercedes Sprinter costs $250k
Would you spend Lamborghini money on a Sprinter?
Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has introduced a more luxurious version of the Sprinter van whose cabin rivals a private jet's in terms of luxury.
The van is named VIP Conference Lounge, and Brabus has gone to fantastic lengths to mask the Sprinter's utilitarian roots. Based on the long-wheelbase Sprinter, it receives three rows of individual heated seats upholstered in a combination of leather and dark gray Alcantara, an Alcantara-upholstered headliner, a conference table, a high-speed LTE router, a pair of TVs, and a 10-inch tablet. The passengers also get a fridge, a BluRay player, and ambient lighting, among other high-zoot and high-tech features.
Visually, Brabus has decked out the Sprinter with a sportier front bumper that incorporates LED daytime running lights, a specific front grille with a large Brabus emblem, and alloy wheels. Dark-tinted windows protect the occupants from prying eyes. Technical specifications haven't been published yet.
In Europe, the Brabus VIP Conference Lounge carries a base price of €224,910, a sum that converts to roughly $250,000. To put that figure into perspective, for that price buyers could pick up a Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 and tick a few option boxes.
