One of the splashiest vehicles on display at the Chicago Auto Show is without any doubt the Mercedes Sprinter Extreme Concept which looks as if it came straight from Jurassic Park.

It started life as a regular Sprinter 3500 Cab Chassis, but long-time Mercedes customizer RENNtech turned it into a Hulk-like green monster by adding numerous aftermarket goodies. The roof now holds a custom rack featuring support for six forward-facing auxiliary lights along with extra spotlights on its sides. Beneath the front bumper resides a bespoke brush guard that comes with extra fog lights and a winch.

There’s also a suspension lift package and beadlock wheels inspired by those fitted on the G Class and shod in off-road tires to make the Sprinter a more capable vehicle on uneven roads. On both sides of the show car are exhausts finished in shiny chrome and to top it all off, RENNtech has applied a striking green vinyl wrap with black graphics.

Another neat feature of the Sprinter Extreme Concept is the Scattolini ScattoMaax "Tipper Bed" which is actually available for purchase via the MasterUpfitter program. It’s a unique bed allowing the Sprinter Extreme to dump more than 5,200 pounds (2,358 kilograms) of payload on either side or to the rear.

The concept is being displayed in Chicago alongside the Sprinter WORKER which joins the Sprinter family in U.S. after the 2500 and 3500.
