While we’re very familiar with the concept of luxury vans, it’s models like the Brabus Business Plus that really get us thinking whether or not a small office space on wheels is actually worth genuine supercar money.
This Brabus-tuned diesel powered Mercedes V-Class costs 296,395 euros, which is roughly $332,000. That’s more than what you’d spend on a brand new Porsche 911 GT2 RS, minus options, taxes, handling fees and all that.
Also, no, the Brabus van is definitely not going to blow you away with its performance. This one only has a 4-cylinder diesel engine, tuned to produce 235 PS (231 HP), which means you’ll get to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 8.8 seconds, before maxing out at 210 km/h (131 mph).
Let’s be fair though and talk about what it is that you do get if you decide to spend this much money on a custom van. For starters, there are custom Brabus bits all over the exterior: front fascia attachment, front spoiler add-ons, rear skirt insert and multiple emblems. You also get the Brabus Monoblock T or R wheels measuring 19-inches in diameter.
Of course, all the good stuff is inside and we really should mention all the mods in order to do this vehicle justice: Brabus fine leather seats with Nappa black piping, heated and vented, with massage and memory function, heated and cooled cupholders in the side panels and center console, electrically adjustable curtains, four reading lights (one per seat), multiple USB ports, Brabus starry sky with RGB ambient lighting, 21.5″ TV, high-speed LTE router, Apple TV, and even a PlayStation 4 Slim.
Last but not least are the custom pedals, entrance panels, door lock pins and floor mats, which you usually find in all Brabus-tuned Mercedes models.
