Mercedes-Benz V-Class by Mansory is a game changer

Article by Christian A., on April 6, 2017

Remember the first time someone put a television screen inside their car? People got crazy over that, and almost everyone wanted one for themselves. Well, with the new Mercedes-Benz V-Class by Mansory, there’s no need to pimp your ride! Everything has already been pimped out for you. But no, this isn’t like what you see on the television. Not with huge booming speakers and multi-colour LED lights.

The high-end van caters to busy executives. Imagine the space and comfort you get in a first-class suite, all compressed in a van. The Mercedes V250d takes luxury vans to a new level, promoting first-class travel.

So let me get to the point. The Mercedes-Benz V250d has very minimal enhancements when it comes to the exterior. Other than the two-tone paintwork and mirror housings, it now features LED-integrated air ducts for a sportier look, trapezoid exhaust tips, and a custom set of 19-inch wheels and exhaust tailpipes. All of these are composed of carbon fiber.

Now, let us get to the more interesting part. Its interior boasts a prestigious set of Alcantara leather seats, and fine wood accents for more opulence. The V250d has two reclining comfort seats with full massage functions. The seats are separated by a centre console that can be modified into a refrigerator (optional feature). Across the two are a pair of fully extendable conference seats when needed to face the rear. The luxury van comes complete with electronic function that can be controlled by the centre touch screen display such as seat functions, Wi-Fi, hands-free calling, and TV.

Despite only having a total of six seats instead of eight (two seats in front, and four at the back), Mansory made sure that the interior is large enough and has all the leg space for that first-class feel. Imagine having to travel distances, when you’ve got all the work to do. Well, the V250d makes future conferences much more comfortable, and private.

V250d also has a new sport steering wheel, with carbon fiber shift paddles. Though the luxury van isn’t fast enough for racing. It still holds a total of 252 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque with the ability to reach a top speed of 210 kilometers per hour. Not bad for a big boy. This is all thanks to the turbodiesel 2, 1-liter four-cylinder powertrain.

The company has not yet announced the price of the Mercedes V250d. We do know that similar models like the Brabus Business Lounge can cost over $300,000. But multi-national CEOs and executives have got nothing to worry when it comes to the price tag.

MANSORY redesigns the Mercedes-Benz V-Class for executive conferencing

MANSORY is famous for transforming luxury vehicles and sports cars into unique and exciting one-offs to enable their well-heeled owners from around the world to make the most of their free time. But now, Kourosh Mansory also has a solution for a car that needs a stylish working atmosphere: the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, which is now like a first class lounge for on-the-road. MANSORY has added carefully selected components to improve the exterior of the van - the air ducts on the front apron feature integrated LED day-driving lights and are thus the perfect combination of aesthetics and function.

The front lip sets a further accent, as does the mirror housing. The new diffuser at the rear bears the hallmarks of MANSORY’s high-quality tuning and the tailgates and roof spoiler surround the rear windshield to create the perfect form. Once again, Kourosh Mansory has stayed true to his favourite materials. All the refinements have been made using carbon fibre created in the company’s own inhouse autoclaves to create carbon components which never compromise on quality or design. The external makeover is rounded off by elegant bi-colour paintwork and light-weight, multi-spoke 19 inch wheels.

The performance of the V-Class has also been upgraded: by optimising the series standard control device, MANSORY has unlocked the 250 D unit (series: 140kW/440Nm) to provide a mighty 39 kW extra as well enhanced torque of 500 Nm. Thanks to its extra power, the top speed has been increased by 11 km/h to 210 km/h. The interior of MANSORY’s V-Class has been upgraded like no other model: naturally, the driver’s cabin has been refined and features a new airbag sports steering wheel, carbon shift paddles, aluminium pedals and dashboard, and the foot mat set ensures the true character of the vehicle is carried into the rear.

The rear section has been made to feel like an executive lounge like those offered to travellers by the most prestigious airlines. Between two comfort seats with reclining functions, the central console and its wavy design helps draw together the elegant design of the interior cabin. Fine woods featuring strong grains emphasise the tastefully designed style. An optional fridge with adjustable bottle holders can also be integrated.

The on-board electronic control system has also been attended to and is now hidden behind the wood panels. All business and relax functions are controlled using the central touch display, which includes Wi-Fi, seat functions, hands-free calling, and conference TV screen. Two conference seats ensure additional variability and can be extended when needed to face the comfort seats.

This means meetings can be held with up to four participants or the cabin can be turned into a generously proportioned 2-person space. Alongside the ebony of the console and some features around the cabin, MANSORY uses the finest varieties of leather and carefully selected Alcantara to create a touch and feel that is matched by no other vehicle. The upholstery also showcases the masterful handiwork and the spirit of manufacturing excellence.
