This Mercedes Van Is A Five-Star Hotel On Wheels

Luxury / 9 Comments

This is what luxury looks like.

The modern passenger van is a far cry from the hippie-filled vans of the 1960s and 70s. These days vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van can offer a seriously premium driving experience, so much so that lots of people are removing away from the traditional limousine, and instead opting for these ultra-luxurious people carriers. One of the leaders in building these opulent vans is Okcu, a family-owned company that is dedicated to crafting tailor-made, luxury interiors. Okcu has recently unveiled its latest creation called the "Artisan" which is based on the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, and it's a sight to behold.

According to the company, "this one-of-a-kind Artisan Edition V-Class is an extremely special and unique luxury vehicle", which is totally believable when you take a look at some of its features. The Artisan plays host to a 24k Rose gold interior and over 4,500 man-hours and 200 unique manufacturing processes. This one-of-one van goes above the standard luxury conversion offered by Okcu and includes interior features such as a Bang & Olufsen sound system with Apple Airplay and wireless phone charging, Rolls-Royce quality leather, handmade Marquetry wood veneer panels insert with 24 karat Rose gold trim, and gold trim along the control panels.

As if those features aren't enough, this V-Class also features a limo-like partition wall screen divider, side tables, leg rests, and even seat massagers. For the thirsty, the Artisan offers a minibar, champagne cooler, and espresso machine, and the headliner is covered in micro-LED lights that resemble "a dark summer midnight full of stars." The exterior of this V-Class also sports a subtle front and rear bumper kit that adds a touch of exclusivity to an otherwise understated van.

"The Artisan Edition design is an extraordinary one-off edition of the world-famous Okcu Mercedes V-Class luxury conversion and indeed is the pinnacle of bespoke luxury. There will only be one example of this vehicle concept ever built. It is, by all accounts, a true treasure in the automotive world," the company proudly boasts. Who needs a Mercedes-Maybach S?
