Entertainment on the Road: BRABUS Viano Multimedia
A luxury minivan with state-of-the-art entertainment technology: The BRABUS Viano Multimedia demonstrates what the Bottrop tuner is capable of thanks to more than 25 years of experience in refining automobiles.
Upon opening the sliding door the passenger is greeted by the finest leather in a tasteful cream/brown combination. With loving attention to detail the company-own upholstery shop sews thousands of meters of high-quality threads to create the perfect interior.
Two first-class passengers can enjoy the rear cabin that is separated from the cockpit by an electrically operated partition.
Two especially comfortable first-class rear seats provide maximum longdistance comfort. The power seats can be reclined all the way to sleeping position and are upholstered with especially soft and breathable BRABUS leather.
Most prominent component of the BRABUS multimedia system is the 32-inch LCD monitor that can be deployed from the partition wall behind the front seats at the push of a button.
The entertainment system is controlled with a touchscreen remote that is integrated into a console between the two rear seats together with the controls for the rear climate conditioning system.
A DVD changer and a digital TV receiver are also part of the system. The crystalclear Dolby Surround sound is transmitted by a HiFi system custom-tailored for the Viano.
The system can be expanded with a computer, high-speed Internet connection or a game console depending on customers’ individual preferences.
BRABUS also provides on-board refreshments: A generously dimensioned refrigerator is part of the exclusive equipment of the BRABUS Viano Multimedia as is a ‘Nespresso’ coffee maker of the latest generation.
Following the credo that time is money BRABUS also offers more powerful engines for the Mercedes minivan. The product lineup inlcudes the BRABUS D3 (II) PowerXtra performance kit that increases power output of the Viano 2.2 CDI to 177 hp and peak torque to 272lbs/ft and the 325 hp BRABUS 4.4 displacement engine for the Viano 3.5.
Upon customer request BRABUS also builds the BRABUS Viano V8 with a 426 hp BRABUS 6.1 eight-cylinder displacement engine. With this engine the minivan is one of the fastest of its kind: 5.9 seconds from rest to 60 mph and an electronically limited top speed of 150mph are performance figures normally reserved for powerful sedans and sports cars.
