A Swank Sprinter Van Takes Manhattan

Until Mercedes builds the Sprinter Van Beethoven edition, Manhattanites will have to be satisfied with this rolling suite dubbed the Sprinter Grand Edition. It's available only at Mercedes-Benz Manhattan, which is fitting since this land yacht targets captains of industry.

This particular Grand Sprinter is equipped to be the perfect bug-out vehicle for a corporate task force facing an SEC swarm. It's got mobile office amenities like high-speed internet, satellite radio, digital satellite TV, 32" LCD flat-screen TVs front and rear, and enough room for break-out groups and a subsequent panel discussion on how not to run afoul of selective disclosure rules governing M&A protocol. It's powered by a 3.0-liter, 188-hp turbodiesel V6 producing 325 lb-ft at 1,400-2,400 rpm to whisk you away to the jet that will take your team to the Cayman Islands for some much-needed downtime before facing extradition.

Want one? You'll have to get it custom-built, which means you can substitute all that business gobbledy-gook for a stripper pole and Four Loko on tap, if you'd rather. It also could make a really nice fusion-style taco truck.
