Happy Birthday, Sprinter! Mercedes-Benz celebrates the 20th anniversary of the best-selling van with an exclusively equipped “Edition Sprinter” special model.
Launched in 1995, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter marked the start of a new era for vans, quickly becoming synonymous as the best-possible van with a gross vehicle weight of around 3.5 t.
To date, some 2.9 million Sprinter models have been built which are in service in over 150 markets worldwide. To mark the anniversary of its best-seller, Mercedes-Benz has brought out a highly attractive special model – the exclusively equipped “Edition Sprinter”.
Set to go on sale in 19 countries in Europe, from Sweden to Spain and from France to Hungary, the special anniversary model is limited to a run of 2000 units.
Design-wise, the Edition Sprinter features bi-xenon headlamps and a chromed radiator grille with “Edition Sprinter” lettering on the flank as a clear sign of the model’s special status. Inside, the special model brings floor mats with exclusive “Edition Sprinter” labelling, a top-class leather steering wheel plus dark-tinted windows in the rear.
All engine variants are available. The “Edition Sprinter” is available for the panel van and crewbus variants in the colour brilliant silver metallic. The Edition model’s bumpers are painted in the same colour – a first for the Sprinter. In Germany, the “Edition Sprinter” package in panel van guise is priced at 2300 euros (plus VAT) which equals to a price saving of 50 percent.
