We are sure Mercedes has caught up with the VW bus for the first time with the current V-Class (currently T6)! Never before has the Stuttgart bus / transporter been reported so often in the tuning sector as this year. After all, the counterpart to VW's bestseller has been around since 1996 (then type W638) but the interest in individual modifications has so far been more than thin. But if you notice a significant increase in demand in the tuning area, you can translate that almost 1 to 1 into the increased popularity of a vehicle. Especially the big brands like Brabus or Väth shortly after the appearance of the W 447 (V 447) dealt with the Stuttgart model and introduced some extremely extensive modifications. And today we discovered a highlight that we can of course not withhold from you. We can tell you that from Mainz tuner FCM tuning, V-class even refined a common ground with the extreme 792PS Wheelsandmore Mercedes S63 AMG and the beautiful Audi RS7 Widebody by mbDesign Has! Now you surely wanted to know what is meant? We tell you! The V-Class carries a super beefy wheelset in 11 x 22 inch rear with mighty 305er tires. Even in front of the bus was equipped with wide 9 x 22 Zöllern and 265er tires, by means of wedge-shaped lowering the whole looks absolutely spectacular.
If the V-Class would now have a red stripe on the sides you could almost think the A-Team will be reissued later this year. Evil and unmistakable! Of course, the extreme wheelset does not fit just under the wheel arches of the V-Class, FCM had to widen the fenders and even the built-in lowering by means of sports suspension was not easy to order. Especially for the Mercedes was even developed a special chassis that makes the wheel / tire combination with the vehicle possible. More information about the rims and the built-in suspension we hope to deliver in the course of the next week. If we get the missing information about the modifications to the V-Class, there is, of course, an update for this post.
