The ongoing trend for converting vans into super deluxe mans of transportation continues with this, the Mercedes Sprinter Brilliant Van. No that’s the actual name of the car!
That’s because it’s made by a company called Brilliant Transportation, so you expect them to be really brilliant. Richard Fertig, the man behind Brilliant Transportation says what sets his vans apart from the rivals is the unusual design of the interior “which feature a clean aesthetic with neutral colors and include rich hardwood floors, oversize leather seats, refrigerators, stowaway desks and built-in cabinets.”.
As it’s the case with such cars, there’s loads of equipments stuffed in there including some high-end up to the minute multimedia features. The Brilliant Sprinter gets a premium eight-speaker audio system, two 32-inch flat-screen TVs with satellite-based Direct TV and wireless headphones, as well as 3G Wi-Fi capability, color printers and a hands-free conference call system.
The reason we think you should consider buying one of these instead of say a Maybach, is the amount space you get inside the car. It has a simply enormous cabin which as Mr. Fertig points out, an NBA player can stand up in with room to spare. On the downside, this car is still a van, which means you can’t take it to the red carpet! But then, this is a sort of cars businessmen use, not movie stars.
Fertig says, “We’re introducing a new mode of travel we call Private Motoring¨ that often replaces air and rail transport. Although a number of our clients didn’t realize at first that Mercedes-Benz makes large vans, they know and love Mercedes, which makes our chauffeur-driven Brilliant Vans a natural extension of the way they choose to travel. Our New York-based Sprinters offer a distinct environment for business trips to Boston and DC, social events in Manhattan such as Lincoln Center or family weekends to the Hamptons and the Vermont ski country. With a similar range of use, our just-opened L.A. operation makes frequent trips to Las Vegas, Santa Barbara and San Diego.”
