The Polish interior specialists from Carlex Design seem to have a soft spot for people carriers from Mercedes as after fiddling with a couple of Sprinter vans, they decided to breathe new life into an older Viano. As always, we are blown away by the attention to detail and the level of the craftsmanship invested to give the spacious cabin a more upscale appearance.
While it may not be on a pair with an S-Class in terms of comfort, the Viano’s luxed-up cabin does manage to ooze an upmarket vibe thanks to the real wood trim applied onto the dashboard, door panels, and on the gear knob. The two-tone leather covering the steering wheel is a nice touch, as is the seat upholstery combining Alcantara with leather finished in a brown and black theme creating a cozy atmosphere.
Up to seven passengers and the driver get to enjoy the overhauled Viano, which is now perfectly suitable to carry VIPs or high-ranked people while on the go. Even the armrests for the front seats have been dipped in the finest leather, just like the upper section of the dashboard matching the light brown hue of the steering wheel.
Rounding off the tweaks is the generous use of Alcantara applied onto the A- and B-pillars, as well as to cover the entire headliner and other surfaces as a way to make the cabin really pop.
While there is no word about how much the customer paid Carlex to freshen up the Viano, it goes without saying this type of transformation costs a pretty penny since it took many hours to complete the project using high-end materials.
