    This image taken to make it seem like it’s twice as long as it actually is…

    Us climbers always hang out rack of pristine and unused cams over our beds at night… 🙄

    Am I missing something? How TF is that so much money? It’s really not that special.

    Airstream tax. Makes VW tax like the middle isle specials of Aldi

    Blimey. There’s taking liberties with perspective in Photoshop and then there’s those mock-ups…unless they’ve really developed the same Dr Who technology that sorted out the Tardis.

    I can never understand why such big vans are lifted. Surely it uses enough fuel and tips over in the corners enough already? And you aren’t actually going to take it seriously offroad with such a long wheel base are you?

    That aside it looks alright. If you like that kind of thing.

    not sure if it is – looks like they’ve used the 5 ton base van rather than the more common 3.5 ton

    the 5t ones sit on different axels and suspension and are a bit nose-up compared to the 3.5

    It’s 4×4 also and they are always high.

    It makes prominent use of the letter ‘x’…. but its not 4×4

    I drove the new sprinter (base) for T* for a year during lockdown and was very regularly dropping cars (*of course within the confines of the highway code*) on twisty roads. Remarkable machine. I bet a transit custom is even better.

    Theres a Sprinter conversion on eBay at the minute for £120k. It is a NWCC conversion which is pretty much the best of the best but even so, £120k!

    A friend of mine sold his tricked out T5 (4×4, jacked suspension, bigger wheels, new gear ratios etc) for ~45k.

    He then buys a Sprinter, gets it jacked, bigger wheels, underfloor protection, Hymer conversion. The thing cost him around 120k. Crazy.

    And yet he still goes to campsites because of the convenience.

    Oh, and despite the van being two years old it’s already got rust coming through the paint.

    Tiny model to make it look bigger. Fiat Ducato or Renault Master make more sense as a base vehicle.
