Airstream has unveiled the new Airstream Autobahn luxury passenger van. Airstream worked with Mercedes-Benz to deliver a new standard in VIP travel that merges quality and design with comfort, convenience and productivity. The Airstream took cues from its aircraft experience and innovation to offer a sophisticated interior, expansive space and handcrafted furnishings inside the eight-seat Autobahn.

The Autobahn comes with a price tag of $133,024 and features a power entry sliding door that welcomes the passenger into the cabin. The cabin, meanwhile, boasts of spectacular selection of finishes, materials and amenities like durable wood trim, leather seating, dual refrigerators and individualized controls. Each of the position in the primary cabin features a power footrest, heated seating and power outlets (120v and USB).

Each position also comes with a workspace with a functional desk. Autobahn features the advanced Airstream Smart Control System that provides centralized control for lighting, shades, heating and air conditioning in the main cabin – using just a smart device like tablets and smartphones, laptops or through the Autobahn’s onboard electronics.

The advanced Airstream Smart Control System also allows the use to control onboard entertainment, which boasts of state-of-the-art features like a 32 inch LCD TV screen, Blu-Ray player, Pandora, and an Apple TV box with Air Play functionality. The Autobahn is targeted towards companies catering to affluent travelers.

"Airstream continues to set the industry standard for unparalleled luxury travel, a strategy further enhanced by our partnership with Mercedes-Benz," said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. "Whether your VIP is a professional client or family member, we are creating a new category that delivers an exclusive level of focus on individual passenger comfort and convenience."
