MMS specialize in custom articulated lorries, mostly for promotional purposes like rolling billboards or motorized shops and venues. In 2010, it announced its first line of trucks, called Futuria, which now comprises several models of varied sizes and functionality. But it’s one particular model we’re interested in, because it was the first and remains the most outrageous of the bunch: the Sports + Spa motorhome.
Announced that same year and brought on display at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf, Sports + Spa was initially meant as a concept only, to showcase what was possible in terms of customization with a Futuria truck. The company later announced that only 20 such motorhomes would ever be produced, and that the Futuria line would comprise 100 altogether. That is to say, this was an exclusive product. And it would be priced to match.
One of the highlights of the Sports + Spa motorhome is the garage, accessible through the rear by means of a 3.8-meter (12.4-foot) ramp. It’s perfect for a sportscar and it comes with a side flap that allows you to get out of the car more easily, once the vehicle is loaded. It also does wonders for display purposes, if you’re ever in the mood to show off.
The second highlight is, as the name implies, the jacuzzi on the deck. Upstairs, the motorhome has a sundeck with steel railings (that fold down when not in use) and real teal deck like a superyacht. At the end of the deck is a 550-liter (132-gallon) basin with illuminated jet nozzles and pulsators, LED lighting and a special waterfall feature. The deck can be used for tanning or turned into an outdoor dining area for barbecues and informal meals. MMS notes that you shouldn’t compromise on your guest list: if you can’t fit everybody up top, there’s also an awning that expands the dining area on the ground.
Inside the motorhome, you get a small bunk with two one-person beds over the garage. In promotional videos, this bedroom comes across as a very tiny, cramped space where you wouldn’t want to spend time if you’re not sleeping, but at least it also seems comfortable enough. The rest of the space is taken up by a massive lounge with a U-shaped leather couch, big enough to seat 10 people, and a kitchenette. MMS never mentioned a bathroom, but we’re assuming there must be one at least with a toilet, if not a proper shower.
Sports + Spa is meant to be self-sufficient, so it has its own water (fresh and gray) tanks, powerful generator, surveillance and monitoring systems, and can be fitted with solar panels and batteries. With no budgetary restrictions, there’s nothing stopping you from taking this out on the road and staying there off-grid for longer stretches. A third bed is found in the cabin of the truck, because most also think of your driver.
Speaking of the truck, MMS notes that it uses Iveco large series components for the chassis and the drive. Power comes from a 3.0 l four-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 170 hp at 2,990-3,500 RPM and 400 Nm (295.02 ft-lb) of torque starting at 1,250 RPM.
The Futuria Sports + Spa is priced at €657,000 ($767,000 at the current exchange rate) for the most basic model, but since this is a custom rig, the only upper limit is the one you set, depending on what you want on it.
