USA meets Europe with the new Airstream Autobahn

We all know the Airstream US company is the maker of the iconic retro silver travel trailers, but the company is still very much ready to deliver new products as well.

The latest example is the Airstream Autobahn, which is based on the well-known Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van – and recently introduced during the Mercedes Sprinter national dealer meeting.

“Airstream continues to set the industry standard for unparalleled luxury travel, a strategy further enhanced by our partnership with Mercedes-Benz,” said Airstream CEO and President Bob Wheeler. “Whether your VIP is a professional client or family member, we are creating a new category that delivers an exclusive level of focus on individual passenger comfort and convenience.”

Although the exterior is pretty much the same to any Sprinter, except for the well known silver paint job, the Airstream experts worked hard mostly on the interior setup, where the a luxury van should bring a “new standard in VIP travel.”

The interior cabin is heavily inspired by what private jets bring in terms of space, convenience and luxury, with the six rear seats heated and equipped each with its own electrically-powered footrest, retractable desk and 120V/USB outlets. There’s also a wooden floor, not one, but two refrigerators and a full entertainment system – complete with 32-inch LCD TV, Blu-Ray player and Apple’s TV.

At the measly price of $133,024, the Autobahn has under its hood a well known Mercedes 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine, good for 188 hp (140 kW) and 325 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque.
