Nonetheless, the premium van will have much more to offer than that and we’re referring to the infotainment here. In the past, the aftermarket developer treated us with creations such as the Business Light, which was basically a Viano (the V-Class’ predecessor) turned into a complex mobile office.
This packed power seats in a conference layout, with 15 -inch LCD screen, a generously-sized LCD TV, a DVD changer and a digital DVBT TV tuner included. In-vehicle Wi-Fi was obviously present, while the users could place their laptops on a burled walnut conference table. And yes, the espresso machine was also there.
As expected, the cabin of the Viano was flooded with leather and Alcantara.
With the new V-Class, Mercedes-Benz has already taken the segment to new heights, introducing an S-Class-inspired design and lavish materials. Thus, we expect something truly extravagant from the German tuner.
Brabus also gifted the Viano with their customized 6.1-liter V8, which allowed the driver to control 426 hp and could play the 0 to 62 mph game in 6.2 seconds, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the tuning house gift the V-Class with more horsepower than you’ll ever need.
We mustn’t forget Brabus is also tasked with building the upcoming 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman. Not to be confused with the S-Class Maybach (X222), the Pullman will be the longest and probably the most lavish incarnation of the S-Class.
Update: the Moscow floor proved us wrong - while Brabus did work on a commercial vehicle, they released the Sprinter-based Business Lounge.
