This is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class that looks like it never ends. It is 3 feet (910 mm) longer than the standard version. The German coachbuilder Binz build the endless car. And we must mention that they did not have a hearse in mind, but an enteraining rear space.
So now, meet the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Xtend. The wagon has been tweaked from the B-pillar backward, in order to turn the rear part into a large cargo compartment, which is almost double the standard one. So what’s your hobby? Skiing? Snowboarding? Moving from one place to another? Riding a bike? Raising big size dogs? You name it, the extended E-Class has room for it. Well, unless you’re planning to move the piano…
The passenger doors have been completely redesigned. Naturally, the wheelbase extended by 34 inches (860 mm) brings all the advantages of additional legroom. And – as the figures certify it – there is plenty of it in the Xtend-ed E-Class!
Considering all the extra space, they had to fill it with something. Alcantara leather, Recaro seats, LED lighting and other items that oligarchs would request in a wagon turned into a hatchback train.
With its overall length reaching 224 inches (5680 mm), the E-Class Xtend can brag about being one of the longest vehicles out there. It is two feet (60 centimeters) longer than Mercedes’ biggest SUV, the GL 550. However, it turned out to be shorter than the Rolls-Royce Phantom (6092 mm).
This E is offered with the same engine range as the regular E, but Binz is planning on building a special version, called the X-Orange, which will come with racing seats and four-point harnesses.
Binz started reworking standard vehicles almost 80 years ago. And apparently they’ve got a weakness for the cars built in Stuttgart. In the early 1990s, they also stretched an S-Class limousine. And if you have ever seen a Mercedes-Benz E-Class long wheelbase limousine with six doors, around Europe, it’s definitely theirs! Click here to check it out, so you can know it when you see it!
