Wedding bus, dump truck, truck and 27 variants MB Sprinter

The plant in the German city of Ludwigsfelde, where you get Mercedes-srednetonnazhnye presented three dozen exotic Sprinters: dump truck, tow truck, aerial platform, insulated van with fridges, which are powered by solar panels on the roof, and plenty of modifications and add-ons.Yuriy Timkin “Behind the wheel”

Germany was reunited nearly thirty years ago, but in the territory of the former GDR are still many reminders of the socialist past. And it’s not only about the specific square-cluster architecture, but also about automotive fauna: on the road from the airport, I constantly met Wartburg and the Trabant.

As I was driving in the small town of Ludwigsfelde, South of Berlin. Previously, there did trucks IFA. Many remember patience W50, which are in abundance ran through the roads of the Soviet Union. After the fall of the Berlin wall began to produce Mercedes-srednetonnazhnye. And after the recent reconstruction produce Sprinters of the third generation, whose debut took place in early 2018.

On the basis of the Sprinter can build a car almost any purpose — from side of the truck to the vehicle or insulated van.On the basis of the Sprinter can build a car almost any purpose — from side of the truck to the vehicle or insulated van.

Like in the movies

The plant — cool! Particularly impressed with workers with exoskeletons that facilitate physical activity. I such only at cinema saw.

The Sprinter can also surprise you. Its main trump card — an incredible variety of modifications. Customers can choose the length of the wheelbase and load platform, height of the body, number of doors, the busbar (one – or gable), capacity (three to five and a half tons) and drive type (front, rear or full). A choice of four diesel engines: 2.1‑liter “four” (114, 143 or 163 HP) and the 3.0 V6 with 190 HP returns this winter, the European range will complement the version on electric. Transmission — 6-speed manual, seven – or 9-speed automatic. In the end, almost two thousand different variations!

But buyers this is not enough — require individualization.

On the chassis of malotonnazhnogo build medical, courier, police, tourist, rescue, repair, sewing machines… you name it. Of course, this is not the factory versions — with the task perfectly well partners. All of their technical solutions are evaluated and the approval of Daimler AG, so on the partner machine extends the factory warranty.

At the factory I saw three dozen exotic Sprinters. What is there just no! A dump truck, a tow truck, hoist, and isothermal van with fridges, which are powered by solar panels on the roof.

But the unusual ambulance: chassis, on which is hoisted constructed according to the wishes of the medics module. Plus two: inner space (ceiling height of two meters) and the ability to rearrange the “booth” to another gear — she usually lives longer than the machine itself. This concept is gaining popularity.

Ambulance services on the basis of Sprinter ready to leave. In “the booth” have a stretcher, two folding seats for medical staff and a full range of medical equipment.Ambulance services on the basis of Sprinter ready to leave.

It is impossible to ignore the caravans of the company Carthago Reisemobilbau GmbH. These guys don’t just threw a truck chassis and put in its place residential unit — they completely redid the car, there is even a cabin of his own. Had a full bus, where four people can go in the “Autonomous navigation”. On Board there are not only the usual stove and fridge, but shower. And even a sideboard with dishes!

It was nice to see the product Russian firm Luidor, which recently became a partner of mercedesbenzes. The citizens presented a curious machine — a wedding van. Of the thematic attributes only characteristic inscription on Board and flower decorations, but what is the idea and effect!

Based suidobashi engine is a rear-wheel drive, long-wheelbase minibus. The roof was built up themselves (the welds look rough), which allowed to increase the height of the passenger compartment to 1940 mm.

Landing 19 + 1 — that’s you and the van! Along the right side has one seat, along the left — two. Each passenger is supposed USB connector and folding table. The seats are equipped with three-point belts and adjustable angle backrest. And the center seat in addition to move to the side of the aisle is eight inches. Finish — soft and comfortable genuine leather. You know what the unexpected? All the “furniture” — its own, widowiskowo production. Can, when want!

Widowisko bus made to last — and looks good against the products of Western competitors.Widowisko bus made to last — and looks good against the products of Western competitors.

LCD TV, external speakers, a dividing curtain, contour lighting — there is not worse than in a limo!LCD TV, external speakers, a dividing curtain, contour lighting — there is not worse than in a limo!

The passengers — spacious shelves, led lighting, TV, good acoustics. Along the boards — heaters. There is a passage on the first row (apparently, the host could go to the passengers). For exhibition sample please of 4 700 000 rubles. The price master is that the Agency, specializing in weddings millionaires. It, however, can be reduced by rejecting numerous options, but then it will not be a Mercedes.

Portraying jeeps

Finally swept pipersky mini-track, organized near the factory entrance. Only three plots, but it’s better than nothing.

Sit in a four-wheel drive Sprinter with a high roof. Mercedes a typical situation: your one-stop wheel and seat the chamber of the circular review, steering column selector machine. And fit high, freight. And the side mirrors do not provide sufficient visibility.

Revive a 190‑strong turbodiesel button. Operates smoothly, no noises or vibrations — in contrast to the same Ducato, whose acoustic comfort of case is not so.

First — travel plot with a 10 cm layer of sand. No problem. In the middle of “career” I made a short stop. Start: easy slip — confidently and the car drove on.

Followed by the rise of the ramp from sheets of corrugated sheets. Sprinter flew at her without the slightest tension. Tense only I: trucks such exercise not previously performed. Now the descent. But not on a level incline, and down the stairs to the ladder. The help system during the descent there, so you have to slow down on their own.

Thanks to the competent setup ESP four-wheel drive Sprinter confidently copes with diagonal hanging out.Thanks to the competent setup ESP four-wheel drive Sprinter confidently copes with diagonal hanging out.

For vans this obstacle is very difficult, but the Sprinter overcame it without choking.For vans this obstacle is very difficult, but the Sprinter overcame it without choking.

In the middle of the descent we will stop to try to move back, but the guy in the next chair and waved his hands — not! Then, when cooled, whisper reported that he had tried to do it, but to no avail.

Roll down to the last segment — a 15‑metre hilly area. Here Sprinter demonstrated the ability to deal with diagonal movement. For the minibus is a great cross!

In Russia the minimum price of all-wheel drive Sprinter — 4 516 000. For the money it is possible to take a full-size SUV premium that people are happy to do. And those who every penny counts, buying four-wheel-drive Ford Transit 2 522 000.

Sales of commercial Cars in Russia this year has seriously dipped (six months minus 60,2%). The reason to stop production on Gas is a relatively affordable family Sprinter Classic (for fear of us sanctions, although not directly say). And imported Sprinters buyers can not afford. While the Germans did not return to localization, the falling trend is not reversed.
