Relax in the reclinable BRABUS VIP Business Seats

Maximum comfort, cutting-edge ambience, maximum connectivity: that is what passengers of the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE based on the current Mercedes-Benz V-Class (W447) with extra-long wheelbase can experience. It is celebrating its world premiere at the 87th Geneva Auto Show. At the heart of the VIP passenger area in the rear are two power-adjustable VIP Business seats with power-extendible and power-retractable footrests. Like on long-distance flights in business class, the seats can be infinitely adjusted between sitting and sleeping position. Of course, these VIP Business seats are also heated and ventilated. In addition, they offer a massage function and adjustable lumbar support.

Additional space for two - foldable assistance seats

Perfectly integrated into the partition wall there are two power and fold-away assistance seats that can accommodate two additional passengers on short-distance trips. Similarly to the other interior functions they are controlled via the BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANEL. The two assistance seats feature both seat-heating and seatbelts.

Control the whole interior with the BRABUS Touch Control Panel

All functions of the seats and the whole interior can be controlled with the BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANEL, an all-new central touch screen controller developed by BRABUS from scratch. It is integrated into the side paneling right next to the seats of the two VIP passengers. The BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANEL also activates the gimballed LED reading lights integrated into the headliner. For storing personal items, the center console between the rear seats is fitted with the BRABUS SAFE BOX, which can only be opened electronically after entering a passcode on the BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANEL. The BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANEL also allows the passengers to operate the partition wall. They can raise and lower either the 40-inch screen or a glass pane in its center.

Enjoy modern entertainment - The BRABUS Media Center

Smartphones, tablets and notebooks feel right at home in the BRABUS Business Lounge: The BRABUS MEDIA CENTER, a central infotainment-system controlled by the passengers with the help of a touch-screen in the middle console of the passenger compartment enables the playback of videos, music, presentations, and all other common forms of media content on the 40 inch TV screen or the custom made HiFi-sound-system. In case passengers want to connect their own devices to the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE the on-board Wifi-network enables a connection to the BRABUS CLOUD and play content from their smartphones or tablets through the multimedia system of the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE or download content made available to them in the BRABUS CLOUD. An LTE router furthermore provides the passengers with an Internet connection. Molds for induction charging for selected smartphones are incorporated into the right and left side paneling. Additionally the passengers can access media content from a Sony PlayStation 4, an Apple TV module, the BRABUS Media Player or from the Internet via LTE high-speed router. Of course, the screen can also show the image from the van’s outside car-camera system, which is likewise part of the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE standard equipment. 

BRABUS Separation Wall

The separation wall is installed between driver’s cabin and the rear passenger compartment. Via the BRABUS Touch Control panel the passengers can independently control both a 40-inch TV and a glass separation wall mounted in its center. Both can be opened to communicate with the driver or simply see the road ahead. Or they can be closed to enjoy complete privacy and enable the use of the TV-screen. The glass separation wall also features the BRABUS Magic Glass functionality, meaning the passengers can switch between see-through mode and privacy-mode.

Instant Privacy - BRABUS Magic Glass

BRABUS Magic Glass allows the passengers of the BRABUS Business Lounge to tint each window in the rear electronically with the press of a button. It enables maximum and instant privacy. It is an innovative function presented for the first time in the BRABUS Business Lounge for V-Class that replaces conventional curtains. Naturally the retractable glass spearation wall installed between the driver's cabin and the rear passenger compartment also has this functionality.


BRABUS Cloud

Smartphones, tablets and notebooks can easily be connected to the WiFi Hotspot integrated into the BRABUS Business Lounge. The built-in LTE-router enables internet-connectivity on the drive. Via the BRABUS Cloud media server data can both be uploaded from and downloaded to personal devices. Content stored on personal devices can also be displayed on the 40-inch TV-screen integrated into the separation wall from devices powered by iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile. Simply put: the BRABUS Business Lounge for V-Class offers all connectivity features that could possibly be desired by tech-savvy passengers in today’s digital age.

BRABUS Hospitality

The BRABUS Business Lounge for V-Class includes all hospitality features one would also expect in a private jet. The coffee-maker that is neatly integrated into the separation wall provides for different hot beverages. Snacks and cold drinks can be stored in the spacious refrigerator also built into the lower end of the separation wall. Of course matching glasses and cups are also provided. They can be found in a compartment below the BRABUS Safe-Box in the middle console.

Secure storage for personal items - the BRABUS Safe Box

Personal items can easily and safely be stored in the BRABUS Safe Box which is integrated into the middle console between the two BRABUS VIP Business Seats. It can only be opened by entering the correct passcode on the touchscreen of the BRABUS Touch Contol Panel. Nobody except the passenger sitting in the back can define the passcode necessary to open this locked compartment.

 

 


BRABUS Business Lounge Exterior Design

The BRABUS Business Lounge Exterior Design

The exterior of the BRABUS Business Lounge, based on the Mercedes-Benz V-Class also stands out from the crowd.

To give the van a more striking appearance, the BRABUS designers developed attachments for the side air intakes and a front spoiler that mounts to the lower section of the bumper and that includes LED daytime running lights. Thanks to its sophisticated shape, this aerodynamic-enhancement component reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds for further optimized handling stability.

The BRABUS designers developed a three-piece cladding for the rear bumper, which on the left and right side provides the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless sports exhaust, and with its center section designed to look like a diffusor lends the van a markedly sporty yet elegant rear appearance. The tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock alloys, available in four different designs and with diameters of 18 or 19 inches, also play a major role in the sporty-elegant appearance of the refined van.

The largest independently safety-certified variant features 8.5Jx19 wheels. The show car in Geneva shows two wheel families, the BRABUS Monoblock F with cross-spoke design and the BRABUS Monoblock T styling with five double spokes. The optimal high-performance tires of size 255/40 ZR 19 front and back are supplied by technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.

For the Mercedes V 250 d, the BRABUS engine specialists developed the PowerXtra D4 performance kit. The plug-and-play module bumps the power output of the four-cylinder common-rail turbo diesel engine by 33 kW / 45 HP (44 bhp) and boosts peak torque by 70 Nm (52 lb-ft). A new peak torque of 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) between 1,400 and 2,400 rpm delivers superior in-gear acceleration that lets the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE master any traffic situation with ease. The rated power output jumps from standard 140 kW / 190 HP to 173 kW / 235 HP (188 to 232 bhp). As a result, the van accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
