It looks like traveling first class isn’t limited to just flying anymore. You can now enjoy the same comfort that luxury air travel brings while on the road.
Case in point is this line of customized Mercedes-Benz Sprinters now available in the market.
Custom Mobile Offices
The offering comes from the California-based custom luxury wheels maker Lexani Motorcars. Dubbed as mobile offices, their line of vehicles are specially designed with business executives and other monied people in mind.
The company is currently selling four versions of their luxury mobile office: the Ambassador, the Ashford, the Malaga, and the Grazia. And as you would expect, none of them come cheap.
Getting yourself a taste of first-class road travel costs about $550,000 but the baseline price is cheaper at $250,000. That’s not even considering the additional costs of other expensive customizations like bulletproofing will add.
Let’s see what amenities will half a million dollars get you.
The Asgard, like other Lexani vans, is deceivingly unassuming from the outside. What bystanders don’t realize though is that the vehicle is decked out with all the trappings of a first-class cabin or a five-star hotel inside.
It boasts of having reclining Italian-leather seats and a 55-inch OLED TV complete with a surround-sound system. Travelers also have a choice between having a drink of wine or coffee as the van features wine chillers and an espresso machine.
You’d also be surprised to find a restroom complete with a gold-plated sink aboard the seemingly small Ambassador. Not only that, but the Ambassador also manages to fit a kitchenette inside.
It is protected by b6-level armoring, which means that passengers will stay safe even when the van is blasted by something as powerful as a grenade or high-powered rifles.
Meanwhile, the Andalucia’s crowning feature is a luxury bedroom suite. After all, busy business people also need sleep.
The Andalucia’s sleeping area is separated from the driver’s space by a television that lifts up. And to help its tired passengers relax, the bed is flanked by two liquor-filled cabinets.
Those looking for something more work-friendly may find the Ambassador IV the better choice though. Its seats are equipped with an airline-style writing table so passengers can continue checking off items on their to-do list while traveling.
And when work gets stressful, the Ambassador IV’s leather seats also double as a massage chair. The home theater and security system can also be controlled while sitting through the mounted iPads aboard.
