Mercedes-Benz will unveil its Viano VISION DIAMOND superlative show car at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, slated from April 25 to May 2, 2012. The Viano VISION DIAMOND features a black radiator grille, two-tone exterior paint job and chromed grille louvers. The car also features two body colors, black and diamond white, separated by a fine, sparkling gold line, with a painted diamond adorning the B-pillar.
Mercedes-Benz also used black and diamond white on the rims of the five-spoke wheels, with the brakes sporting the “Mercedes-Benz” words in gold. The classy luxury diamond looks of the exterior is carefully extended to the interior. Passengers in the rear could well enjoy the extravagance of the car, highlighted by a special innovative multimedia unit that allows passengers to select between a business setting and a comfortable ambience.
The Mercedes-Benz Viano VISION DIAMOND showcases windows -- passenger compartment windows, rear windows, and passenger-chauffeur glass partition -- that are equipped with the Magic Sky Control system, allowing passengers to change interior lighting conditions with a single button push. The Magic Sky Control system also allows the passenger to change the color of the windows, made possible by a liquid contained in the window glass that reacts to the changes in electric current.
The chauffeur’s area is covered with black finish, with the seats and door, as well as the instrument panel, the steering wheel, the gearshift, and the A- and B-pillars being covered with the finest nappa leather.
In contrast, the passenger compartment is covered in porcelain white – including the carpet, seats, safety belts and the ceiling. The passenger compartment is laden with two top-of-the-line seating accommodations equipped with heating and cooling as well as massage features. Aside from the cup holders, there are Champagne glass holders for the model’s silver Champagne flutes, which automatically appear at the push of a button. The side paneling of the car also has five bottle holders.
