NEWS - Merc and Pioneer team up to create ultimate party van

Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Pioneer GB to create Project-X; the ultimate DJ van with Pioneer’s world record holding Sound Pressure Level in-car entertainment products.

The Project-X vehicle is, in essence, a Mercedes-Benz Vito 122CDI Sport-X Dualiner model. Power comes from a range-topping turbo-charged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, producing 224bhp and 440Nm, reaching 60mph in just 8.3 seconds with a maximum speed of 122mph.

Inside there is around £25,000 worth of Pioneer equipment. Included in this are two 15” competition class SPL subs and four 10” Champion Series subs two Pioneer CDJs and a state of the art mixer, which combined offer the perfect party set-up. The total system features no less than eight independent amplifiers using four batteries and a 300amp power supply, with a speaker power handling capability at a mind-boggling, ear-bursting 30,050 watts!

The special edition Vito Sport-X by Mercedes-Benz includes a Brabus steering wheel, gear lever in black leather with Brabus emblem and lowering springs, chrome sidebars, Sports exhaust, metallic paint, tinted glass, colour coded bumpers and chrome grille and tailgate trim.

Steve Bridge, Van Sales and Marketing Director for Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “Project-X not only sounds awesome, but it looks amazing too! The sheer power from this van, both from the engine and the sound system, is epic and needs to be seen to be believed. The machine is simply amazing.”
