SPRINTER SETS NEW STANDARDS
MERCEDES- Benz and the tuners at Renntech worked together to deliver a extreme Sprinter concept for the Chicago Motor Show.
Instead of doing what most tuner do, the suspension is lifted and not dropped, adding dramatically to the vehicle’s imposing size.
Larger wheels and suspension are catered for by custom rear fenders.
Made to work, the extreme Spinter has a Scattolini ScattoMaax Tipper Bed that can carry 2 355 kg of payload, which it can dump to the left, right or straight back.
The Sprinter’s standard LoadAdaptive ESP works to keep the Extreme stable, even when fully loaded and pulling 3,4 tons on a braked trailer. A mud- splashed neon green wrap shows how business can decorate the working van to make a rolling marketing statement.
Mercedes- Benz in South African said all Sprinters are now sold with an industry- first five- year/ 105 000 km service plan.
Called the CharterWay Service BestBasic, the service plan assists operators to concentrate on their business’ core requirements, by offering guaranteed vehicle availability and reduced administration.
“The Mercedes- Benz Sprinter is a market leader in its segment due to its high levels of safety, impressively economical engines and unsurpassed innovations. With the CharterWay service plan, we are ensuring it remains in the lead,” said Nicolette Lambrechts, Head of Mercedes- Benz Vans, Southern Africa.
Not having to pay for a service gives operators complete peace of mind when buying a Mercedes- Benz Sprinter, and allows them to concentrate fully on their bread- and- butter business.
Able to carry over 2,3 tons while pulling another 3 tons, the Mercedes Sprinter Extreme was shown at this week’s 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
