BEST of the BEST 2014 | Wheels | Specialty Vehicles | Executive Transport : Becker JetVan

  • Joe Richardson
Although still as discreet as ever, the Becker JetVan has a new look because Mercedes-Benz has redesigned the Sprinter on which it is based. The 2014 Sprinter features a revised front end, hood, grille, headlights, and bumper. Becker Automotive Design, which is based in Southern Califor­nia and will deliver its JetVan just about anyplace worldwide, begins with a Sprinter and transforms the interior so that it resembles the cabin of a private jet. Prices range from $250,000 to $450,000 depending on the amenities that are added. A JetVan’s interior can include reclining leather seats, custom carpeting, a choice of wood veneer trim, a Crestron-controlled entertainment system, and even a restroom. The vehicles can be equipped with a full suite of mobile-office technology and multiple video monitors, including a 40-inch screen for videoconferencing or watching movies. Enhanced climate control, sound insulation, and suspension will ensure a comfortable ride and work environment. (Becker Automotive Design, 805.487.5227, www.beckerautodesign.com)
