DC Design has been rebranded as DC2 and they are back in the customisation business with a bang. DC Design is one of the oldest and most renowned modification garages in India and recently they rebranded to DC2. Only a few days after they revealed the customised Toyota Innova Crysta for Madhuri Dixit, they have now revealed the customised Mercedes-Benz V-Class for Hrithik Roshan.
While the new Mercedes-Benz V-Class has not been spotted with Hrithik Roshan yet, we believe that when the lockdown comes to an end, the actor will be out in his new car. Hrithik Roshan has one of the most expensive garages in India that includes cars like Rolls Royce Ghost, Mercedes-Maybach S650 and several Mercedes-Benz S-Class. He also owns a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, a couple of Mini Coopers and a Land Rover Range Rover. However, none of his current vehicles has this kind of customisation.
The pictures of the cabin shared by DC2 show that it retains the four-seats but it is not known if the middle row seats can still be revolved like the stock vehicle or they are now in a fixed position. The seats have been upgraded to luxury recliners that can be electronically controlled through the panels located on the armrest. The windows have been covered with wooden panels and they can be retracted as per need. All the seats now get white coloured leather with diamond stitching that adds the ultra-luxurious feel to the car. There are also wooden panels all around now and the cabin gets ambient lighting that can be changed according to the mood.
The ceiling of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class now gets large panel lights that give a soft diffused effect and illuminate the whole cabin evenly. For reading purposes, there are reading lights installed to the roof. There is a centre table with retractable wings that can be used to keep various items. There is even a mini-fridge installed to chill the drinks. There are no screens installed in the vehicle. We believe that the car will serve as a mini vanity van and will also be used for regular commutes of the actor.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class was launched in the Indian market last year and it became quite popular. Amitabh Bachchan became one of the first celebrities to buy the car in India. Priced at Rs 68.4 lakhs for the base variant, while the extended long-wheelbase version is priced at Rs 82 lakhs. Mercedes-Benz recently also launched the Marco Polo adventure variant of the car priced at Rs 1.48 crores. The V-Class is primarily a chauffeur-driven vehicle powered by a 2.-litre BS6 compliant engine. It generates a maximum power of 162 Bhp and a peak torque of 380 Nm. It gets a 7-speed automatic transmission.
