The Mercedes Sprinter Extreme Concept is Ready for Anything


The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a good vehicles for plumbers or electricians, but tuner Renntech wants us to think of this van as a survival tool. 

At the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz rolled out the Sprinter Extreme Concept, taking this everyday work van from ordinary to insane. This beast is over 20-feet long, nearly eight-feel tall, comes with a diesel powerplants and is capable of hauling 6,400 lbs of payload.

Built by tuner Renntech, plenty of custom equipment was added to make this concept entirely capable. A custom roof rack supports six forward-facing lights up front while a brush guard protects the lights down low. A powerful winch is fitted to the front bumper, riding above G-Class-inspired beadlock wheels and off-road tires. Of course, chrome exhaust stacks and a vinyl wrap complete the look.

A “Tipper Bed” fitted by Scattolini ScattoMaax is also on the back of the Extreme concept and is able to dump over 5,200 pounds to the side or off the back.

    This thing is pretty awesome. The only thing I’d change is the paint. Zombie apocalypse anyone?
