The Fanciest Van Ever MadeMarch 8th, 2014
When we think of vans, we’ve usually got images of dirty, formerly white utility vehicles, or those awful 1970s Chevy and Ford vans that had airbrushed artwork, a moon-shaped window on the side and a scuzzy bed in the back. This is NOT one of those vans.
Designed by Germany’s Klassen Car for its most discriminating clients, this VIP limousine van is loaded with the sort of features you’d expect to find on a Maybach.
Inside, you’ll find fine quilted leather and soft touch surfaces throughout, along with every convenience you can imagine. It’s got a refrigerator, a retractable home theater with a big screen TV and surround sound, an espresso maker and wine bar, and even a cigar humidor. Each seat also has a flip out work surface for laptops, and naturally the chairs recline and adjust to provide maximal comfort. And all of these features are mechanically operated using a remote-control tablet app. Only a caveman would open his glove and tie drawer by hand.
For a moment, we even thought it had the ability to stretch itself, but it turns out that they just did that to illustrate how much longer it is than a stock Mercedes-Benz van. That’d be a neat trick though.
