OKCU’s Mercedes V-Class Signature Edition Is A Real S-Class Rival

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is the quintessential example of a luxury vehicle. While there’s a lot to like with the S-Class (Maybach or Benz), the thing that could possibly stop someone from purchasing the machine is space.

That’s something that OKCU Individual Automotive Concepts has remedied with the Mercedes V-Class Signature Edition.

Making its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, OKCU’s V-Class Signature Edition is an extremely limited – only 10 will be built – land yacht that offers consumers with an alternative to flying. It’s also an alternative to anyone that wants to feel like they own a private jet without actually having to own one.

OKCU claims that it took 3,350 hours to go from a regular Mercedes V-Class to the Signature Edition. And the limited-edition vehicle is at the top of the brand’s food chain. Yes, it’s even more luxurious than the Elegance Edition that we saw last November.

The interior of the van features leather upholstery, which the automaker claims is up to Rolls-Royce’s standards, hand-crafted Wenge wood, handmade chrome accents, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. That stuff, though, doesn’t sound out of the ordinary for a luxury vehicle.

The good news is that the opulence doesn’t stop there. The Signature Edition boasts a console storage for his and her Hermes perfume, a special console for a watch winder, tie/scarf, and sunglasses, and a mother-of-pearl side wall insignia with 24 karat gold.

Every controllable component in the vehicle, which includes the partition wall screen divider, side tables, seat massagers, and leg rests, can be controlled with an iPad. The van also features a champagne cooler, mini bar, and espresso machine for those long rides where you’re bound to get thirsty.

The best part of the Signature Edition, though, is the ceiling that’s embroidered with a slathering of micro-LED lights that are meant to evoke a “dark summer midnight full of stars.” It’s all very Rolls-Royce Phantom-esque.

None of this sounds or looks cheap, but OKCU hasn’t released pricing for the van yet. Still, if you’re not interested in having a flashy Rolls-Royce or a Bentley, this van is low-key luxury.

    No wonder it took them so many hours to convert this thing.
