Brabus Turns a Mercedes Sprinter Van Into a Business Lounge

The Mercedes S 65 AMG Coupe and S 600 Guard certainly stole the show at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon. In addition to the two, there’s one more vehicle that is worth noting, the Brabus Business Lounge. The vehicle is based on the platform of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. For the untrained eye, its body would be easily mistaken as the standard Mercedes Sprinter van.

Airstream recently launched its new project called the Autobahn. Basically, the Autobahn is an enhanced version of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van.
