Convertible Mercedes Sprinter van introducedJanuary 21, 2020
The German company Hünerkopf introduced an unusual version of the Sprinter van. Among other things, the car boasts a convertible body.
It is safe to say that over the past few years, the German brand Mercedes has presented several quite worthy projects, including the 6-wheel SUV AMG G63 6×6, or the monstrous G500 4×42, as well as the ridiculous G650 Landaulet. It is also worth noting the crazy, in a good sense of the word, station wagon E-Class All-Terrain 4×42, and if you liked all these eccentric projects, you probably will also like this convertible, which is based on … the popular Sprinter 4×4 van.
It is worth noting that this unusual performance of the car was not created by specialists of the German automaker.
This strange Sprinter, demonstrated by Hünerkopf in the framework of the special event “Motor Tourism 2020” in Stuttgart (Germany), is a completely unique performance of the popular van. In addition to a completely new appearance, the car also boasts specialized armchairs and a pair of televisions, as well as a glass canopy. Well, in order to increase the chances of a convertible van to overcome the terrain, the car was equipped with a modernized all-wheel drive system.
According to representatives of the tuning studio who were involved in the creation of this car, the project was created for someone who loves falconry, he ordered the Sprinter with everything necessary for this activity – from a winch and a roof bar to a snorkel. The car received massive 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires and has hefty wheel arches, which further emphasizes the readiness of the former van to overcome the terrain.
The tuner set the price for its version of the highly modified Mercedes Sprinter to a mark of just under $ 300,000. Under the hood of this car, you will not see a monstrous V12 engine; instead, there is quite a regular 128-horsepower diesel engine there.
