Mercedes' Refreshed Sprinter gets a "Red and Racy" Makeover by Hartmann

Who ever said that big, brawny commercial vans have to look strictly professional? German aftermarket tuner Hartman believes otherwise with its new “red and racy” upgrade package for the facelifted Mercedes-Benz Sprinter series, and with the possible exception of the two-tone wheels, the rest doesn’t look half bad given what they had to work with.

The exterior kit that is classified under Hartmann’s Vansports styling series includes a new front bumper with integrated fog-lights and spoiler, a rear bumper, side skirts and Zaro alloy rims, which may look like training wheels on the huge Sprinter, but are in fact 20-inch shod in Pirelli P-Zero rubber size 265/45.

Hartmann also took care of the cabin adding leather upholstery with checkerboard pattern and red stitching, a leather steering wheel and shift knob, also with red stitching, aluminum pedals, carbon fiber décor, chrome door sill plates and alcantara door trim with coral red contrast stitching.
