Binz X-Orange based on Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 13, 2012

A super-extra-long Binz Xtend conversion for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate has recently been unveiled. This latest model from German tuner Binz is a super-long-wheelbase E-Class wagon. Binz first mentioned the Xtend at the 2010 Essen Motor Show but it’s only now that it has built this wagon, which is nearly 19 feet long.

Binz’s specialty is building hearse conversions for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Its hearses are based on the E-Class wagon and the Vito van. But just to be clear about it, the Xtend is not a hearse. The Xtend has a 31.7-inch stretch in the chassis between the rear doors and the rear axle. The Binz Xtend measures at 224.4 inches, making it longer than a Chevrolet Suburban by two inches.

It is also longer than a Mercedes GL550 by two feet. However, it’s shorter than the Ford Excursion by 2.3 inches and it’s more than two feet shorter than a Ram 3500 Crew Cab with the eight-foot box. Notably, a hearse is about 19.5 feet long. Initially, the Xtend wagon will be available with the same lineup of engines offered on the standard-sized car.

These are a 240-hp E250 CDI diesel, a 292-hp E350 with a gas V-6, or the V-8-powered 388-hp E500. Buyers can ask Binz to use a different powerplant if they want to. Binz could easily put in a 518-hp bi-turbo V-8 from the E63 AMG on the Xtend to make it extremely powerful. Another option that Binz is offering is the X-Orange, which has racing seats with four-point harnesses and is dressed in bright orange.
