Female Mercedes Employees Moonlight As Rally Drivers

Placing first in class last year gave the impetus for Mercedes and a group of its female employees to enter for the third year in a row the “Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc”. Covering a distance of 2500 kilometers, this desert rally takes place in Morocco and consists of seven stages. Rather than garnering fastest times, winners are determined by which team is able to cover the shortest distance between checkpoints – without the aid of GPS units, cellphones or any other electronic aids. Even binoculars are banned. For the 2012 entries, Daimler has entered three vans: two Vitos and one Sprinter. The new generation Vito models have been modified… Continue Reading »


Perfect Partner Campaign Highlights Mercedes Vito Van

BenzInsider fan and creative artist Tom Ward recently called to our attention a couple of videos he and his team put together to portray the Mercedes Vito Van as the perfect partner for industry and commerce.

And one can only imagine how that Vito sounds when the DJ cranks that 30,000-watt… Continue Reading »


Vilner Showcases Vito’s Luxury Possibilities

Looking more like an executive business jet’s cabin than a small earthbound van, Bulgarian tuner Vilner has taken an ordinary Mercdes Vito van and made it truly extraordinary. The understated exterior treatment hints at very little of the transformation wrought by Vilner to the interior of the van. From the outside, the van just sports aftermarket wheels and a subdued presence. Open the sliding door, step inside, and you are transported to a plush luxury interior that you wouldn’t be embarassed to accommodate any VIP or celebrity in. Four ultra-plush seats occupy the cabin, whose headliner and side trim are finished in matching-color Nappa leather, Alcantara and fine wood. Tinted… Continue Reading »
