German tuner Hartmann has applied its aftermarket recipe on a Mercedes-Benz Vito.

German tuner Hartmann has applied its aftermarket recipe on a Mercedes-Benz Vito.

It seems Hartmann has a soft spot for Mercedes-Benz's utilitarian models as after working on a Sprinter earlier this year they now focused their attention on the smaller Vito. The model of choice was a 119 CDi Tourer which has received a power bump from 190 HP (140 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) to 224 HP (165 kW) and 505 Nm (372 lb-ft) via electronic tweaks. The tuner has installed a custom exhaust system with dual chrome end pipes.

Matching the additional oomph is a beefy body kit encompassing new front & rear spoilers and side skirts, 20-inch wheels with 245/40 sporty tires and a lowering suspension module which has brought the Vito closer to the road by 30mm. Inside the cabin there are aluminum door sills with the tuner's logo, piano lacquer surfaces and custom floor mats.
