Aftermarket specialists have a predilection for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter when it comes to enacting the private jet principle on the road – Carlex Design is the latest to try its hand in the niche.
Shuttle buses are no stranger to anyone who has ever traveled – either for leisure or work. But few folks have tried these versions – which probably are used to ferry around people from their private jets to the luxury resorts, residences or offices. As is customary – affluent people usually love to remain anonymous (ok, not all of them, there are Mansory clients after all) – the exterior is subtle and restrained. We do have a more aggressive front end that seems to take inspiration from the AMG designs – as well as a body kit and a monochromatic silver body – and oddly enough Carlex opted for wheel covers instead of shiny alloys.
But once you get inside, all bets are off – there are only four seats in the back, captain chairs that bask in quilted leather upholstery. Deployable arm rests and tray tables, a tall console to separate each seat – angled digital display for infotainment and ambient lighting area all part of the package. You can even start a party – a private one, thanks to the shutters – thanks to the packed bar. The driver and front passenger also get a taste of the luxury – with diamond-quilted brown leather, matching trim on the dashboard and door panels – while an ostentatious wooden center console is placed between the seats.
