Mercedes-Benz mixes it up with Pioneer for ultimate DJ 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 based around a Mercedes-Benz Vito 122CDI Sport-X Dualiner model, which is powered by a range-topping turbo-charged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, producing 224hp and 440Nm, reaching 60mph in just 8.3 seconds with a maximum speed of 122mph.
Inside the stunning vehicle which features almost £25,000 worth of Pioneer kit there are two 15” competition class SPL subs and four 10” Champion Series subs to ensure a consistently clear, powerful and wide-ranging bass response. The vehicle also comes complete with 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 staggering 30,050 watts!
The special edition Vito Sport-X by Mercedes-Benz includes a Brabus sport 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, commented: “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.
“We’re keen to get the vehicle out and about to showcase what it can do in front of a live audience and look forward to seeing the public’s reaction to such a breath-taking machine.”
