The aftermarket specialist will be premiering during the early-March Geneva Motor Show their newest handy work – the Mercedes-Benz V Class Black Crystal.
The company said their work has transformed the MPV into a proper private jet for the road, and the V-Class Black Crystal also comes with a bespoke design that features a more aggressive front bumper that is holding two inlaid crystals – linking them to the name of the tuning package. The van also boasts LED daytime running lights, a modified grille and a unique back bumper. The most important novelties come from inside the cabin, where Larte has partnered with Klassen to deliver an ultra-luxurious interior which takes cues from said private jets. The manufacturer was coy about providing specific details but did hint there’s lots of premium leather and Alcantara upholstery, wood trimming, as well as a separable habitat – the rear passengers can have privacy from the driver. Also at hand are a flat screen TV, an Alpine audio system, and a minibar.
Other interesting tidbits we noticed are the biometric safe, rear privacy curtains, retractable tables, as well as availability of charging ports – carefully concealed to retain the luxurious atmosphere. We have no idea if any performance modifications have also been operated, but we do know the regular V Class can be had in a wide array of configurations, including a 2.1-liter four-cylinder diesel with 134 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque, as well as beefier options coming with 160 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque or 187 hp and 324 lb-ft of torque.
