Outside, it looks like a typical Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with blacked out middle and rear windows. But inside, this van is hiding something pretty exciting.
Aside from being a successful head coach in the University of Alabama football team, Nick Saban turns out to be an excellent interior designer too. Recently, he brought his styling skills to the Sprinter. He calls it the “Nick Saban Signature Series.”
Within the darkened windows of the van are seats covered in high-quality leather, hardwood floor, seven-seating capacity from the mid to the rear rows, recliner seats with heating and cooling systems, cooler for the booze, booze and ice holders, three LED TVs, home theater units, high-end sound system, iPad-activated controls, and Mobile Direct TV satellite system.
It should be noted that two of its television units measure 40-inches diagonally. Another is the high-end Samsung 4k UHD curved LED TV with screen measuring 48-inches diagonally.
Overall, it’s a great party van, or family van—depending on how you are planning to use it. The only hassle when you are partying inside it is that you will be needing to ask the driver to pull over whenever you had too much to drink and you really need to hit the john.
Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham and McSweeney Designs were the ones responsible for fitting the amazing upgrades of the van. However, the layout and the idea for most of the auto’s interior features came from the outputs of Saban.
Only 15 units of the tailgating Sprinter will be offered for sale to celebrate the 2015-2016 football season. Each unit has a value of $200,000.
