Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Extreme Concept was showcased at the Chicago Auto Show. The concept has been developed with the help of the tuners at Renntech. It looks like it will be a nice fit in a park that has dinosaurs and other creatures that can rip me to shreds in seconds. This is the truck that I would want to take on the dinosaurs with!
The Mercedes Benz Sprinter is a cargo van, a hauler and a pickup truck. The Extreme Concept that Mercedes has showcased at the auto show bears no resemblance to the actual product itself! It has been given an extreme exterior treatment. There is a custom roof rack up with six forward facing spotlights. There are also two that point down to the sides. It features a big brush guard with additional spotlights and nobby tires. Other customization parts includes a winch, a raised suspension, chrome exhaust stacks and vinyl wrap. It also gets a Scattolini ScattooMaax ‘Tipper Bed’ that can haul and dump 5200 pounds of stuff.
The extreme concept showcases what is ultimately possible with the ordinary sprinter platform. The Scattolini ScattooMaax Tipper Bed can be brought from the company’s MasterUpFitter program. The extreme concept is big. It stretches 20 feet from end to end. It is over 95” tall, and can haul about 6400 pounds of payload capacity, and has a towing capacity of nearly 4 tons. The Sprinter chassis is powered by a 4-cylinder BlueTec diesel engine and has a 7-speed 7G-TRONIC transmission. The Sprinter also features Standard Adaptive Load ESP (Electronic Stability Program).
I might look stupid driving this truck down the main streets of Chicago, but I would not care less. This is one concept that has gone straight to my heart!
