And anything or anyone else you can think of.
Some people dream of one day owning an exotic supercar such as a Lamborghini Aventador, or a rugged off-road tool like the Ford F-150 Raptor or Ram 1500 TRX. Others dream of simply hitting the open road in a humble RV and exploring the country. Then, there are those who want it all.
We've covered some seriously impressive motorhomes before, and few know how to build a luxury motorhome better than Volkner Mobil. This company builds motorhomes that can reach prices of up to $2.5 million, and include some insane features and enough parking space for a sports car or two. Volkner's latest Performance S motorhome is more impressive than ever and comes with more luxuries than you can imagine. The new Performance S was recently unveiled at the 2021 Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, and in a video by Enes Yilmazer, we get to see what makes this $1.8 million machine special.
From the introduction, it is immediately clear that this motorhome's showpiece has to be the built-in garage that is able to house a Porsche 911, or even a Bugatti Chiron as it was displayed at the Caravan Salon. The motorhome's unique H-shaped Volvo chassis allows for tons of space between the two axles, with metal legs lifting the whole setup to allow the built-in garage to slide out. If you're not that into cars, the platform can be used as a patio, and Volkner even offers custom patio furniture. During the colder seasons, the heated garage can also be used as a hangout area.
The interior is something else. It's covered in luxury finishes such as leather, wood, Alcantara, marble, and glass. The two front seats are heated, ventilated, and come with a massage function, and the driver's seat can be integrated into a mini mobile office thanks to 360-degree rotation. The rest of the motorhome can accommodate up to ten people, and entertainment is provided by a motorized TV. The fully equipped kitchen comes with a tiny dishwasher and refrigerator. For added space, the Performance S features a 32.8-foot slide-out that adds 42 square feet to the interior.
The bathroom includes a sink with vanity mirrors, a dry water toilet with an integrated bidet, and a separate shower. There's even a couple of bunk beds squeezed in the bathroom just in case. The main bedroom features a king-sized bed and tons of storage space, and even includes ambient starry LED lighting in the ceiling.
Getting an 18-ton motorhome to move at a decent rate takes a ton of power, and in the case of the Performance S, that's provided by a rear-mounted Volvo diesel engine producing 460 horsepower. Keeping this monstrosity on the road is made simpler thanks to modern driving aids such as lane assist, a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and emergency brake assist. In terms of capacities, the Performance S can hold 211 gallons of fresh water, 158 gallons of black water, and has a 79-gallon toilet tank. A 2,400-kW solar panel system, connected to a 1,800 Amp battery pack, can keep most of the appliances running. At $1.8 million, the Volkner Performance S isn't your average motorhome, but we weren't expecting anything less.
