Next Big Thing – Brabus mobile office
This Brabus-modified Mercedes-Benz Viano looks like the result of BA Barracus donning a business suit (sans sleeves, of course) and commissioning Xzibit to pimp out a luxurious office on wheels.
The interior is bursting with tech and is dominated by a 40-inch Sony Bravia 3D LED TV hooked up to an internet-connected Mac Mini and a PS3, for both business and pleasure.
Chuck in a few iPads which are built into the electronically adjustable Bordeaux-leather seats (with touchscreen interface) and you have a seriously capable mobile office.
The extra weight makes next to no difference to the on-road performance, thanks to a 6.1-litre V8 providing a top speed of 250kph and 0-100kph in 5.9 seconds.
The word overkill certainly springs to mind, but the cool factor has all but obliterated every ounce of logic and reason. We’ll take three.
