BRABUS Viano 'Lounge Concept': The Exclusive Office on Wheels

The exclusive office and movie theater on wheels equipped wîth state-of-the-art entertainment technology: With the BRABÚS Viano 'Lounge Concept' BRABÚS (www.brabus.com) demonstrates how to transform the Mercedes van into a luxurious and powerful multi-use vehicle.

The BRABÚS interior designers have developed an innovative concept wîth classy ambiance for the rear compartment of the Viano: Two power comfort seats provide maximum comfort for both rear passengers. Similar to long-distance flights in business class both seats can be reclined to full sleeping position at the push of a button. The seats are upholstered wîth especially soft and breathable leather.

The two custom seats are separated by a center console made from a fancy combination of fine leather and bamboo, a combination that continues throughout the van's interior. The console houses the controls for the rear climate control system and the controller for the COMAND MMI system from the Mercedes S-Class that operates the entire multimedia system.

A 32-inch electrically deployed LCD screen is integrated into the partition wall behind the front seats. It serves as monitor for the computer system wîth Sony Vaio notebook and Wireless LAN network for connecting additional notebooks to the on-board network and for connecting to the internet via ÚMTS. A Sony Playstation 3 game console plays Blu-ray movies and games such as the racing simulator Gran Turismo 5 in stunning clarity on the big screen, which can also display the images from the digital TV tuner. The large screen can also be used in split-screen mode to simultaneously monitor the images from the various external cameras.

The audio signals of the various sources are carried in highest perfection Dolby Surround by a sound system custom-designed for the Viano.

The equipment of the customized Viano can be completed wîth an exclusive mobile phone. The Vertu Constellation weighs just 140 grams (5 oz.) and features quad-band technology for use in 180 countries across the world. The housing is made from a fancy combination of stainless steel, scratch-proof sapphire glass and the same supple leather that covers the Viano Lounge interior.


BRABÚS also provides on-board refreshments: A generously dimensioned refrigerator is part of the exclusive ‘Lounge Concept' equipment of the BRABÚS Viano as is a ‘Nespresso' coffee maker of the latest generation.

The electrically retractable partition window provides privacy in the rear at the push of a button. Numerous integrated storage compartments keep the rear passengers' carry-on items safe. For transporting bodyguards or other personnel there are electrically deployed emergency seats opposite the comfort seats. They also house a safe and additional storage compartments.

The elegant BRABÚS designer suit for the exterior of the Viano sets it apart from the rest. The BRABÚS front apron features two round fog lamps and two Xenon high beams. It gives the Viano more passing clout and reduces lift on the front axle for even better directional stability at high speed.

Únderstated fender flares on front and rear axle make room for stunning BRABÚS Monoblock light-alloy wheels wîth diameters of 18 or 19 inches. The most exclusive version features size 8.5Jx19 wheels wîth size 255/40 R 19 tires. In this size customers can choose either the fully polished Monoblock S design or the Monoblock Q wheel in a striking two-tone combination of titanium-colored paint and polished surfaces.

BRABÚS rocker panels wîth integrated LED entrance lights for safe entering and exiting of the vehicle and the BRABÚS rear apron wîth its custom-tailored cutout for the stainless-steel BRABÚS sport exhaust are also part of the exclusive BRABÚS look.

To further improve active driving safety of the multi-use vehicle without sacrificing ride comfort the BRABÚS suspension engineers have developed special sport springs matched to the production shocks. They lower the ride height of the Viano wîth conventional and wîth air suspension by some 25 millimeters (1.0 inches) on the front axle and by some 20 millimeters (0.8 inches) in the rear.

BRABÚS also offers powerful engines for the Viano 'Lounge Concept' backed by the one-of-a-kind BRABÚS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers / 62,000 miles (see BRABÚS warranty conditions, as of November 2006)


The BRABÚS ECO PowerXtra D6 (III) power kit increases power output of the V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine of the Viano 3.0 CDI by 38 hp (38 bhp) / 28 kW and torque by 60 Nm (44 lb-ft). Performance of the Viano benefits accordingly: The tuned van sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 208 km/h (129 mph).

For the top-of-the-line Viano 3.5 model BRABÚS offers the BRABÚS 4.0 displacement engine wîth 318 hp (314 bhp) / 234 kW and a peak torque of 410 Nm (302 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm.

The stainless-steel BRABÚS sport rear muffler is available for all Viano models and gives the van not only a sporty exhaust note but also a more attractive rear appearance.

The special model Viano V8 from BRABÚS delivers true high performance. The Viano V8 is powered by a BRABÚS 6.1 eight-cylinder displacement engine wîth 426 hp (418 bhp) / 313 kW at 5,400 rpm and a peak torque of 621 Nm (458 lb-ft) at 4,100 rpm and offers driving fun on the highest level. With a sprint time of 5.9 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) the BRABÚS Viano V8 is one of the world's fastest vans.
