This $550,000 bulletproof Mercedes Sprinter is so luxurious that it comes with a gold-plated bathroom sink — take a closer look

  • Lexani Motorcars builds Mercedes Sprinter vans that look unassuming from the outside, but have all the luxuries and amenities of a private jet inside.
  • The company’s vans come appointed with plush leather seats, home-theatre systems, kitchenettes, built-in iPads and computers, and liquor cabinets.
  • All that comes at a steep price, however – $US250,000 may buy you a basic Lexani build, but you’ll need to shell out closer to $US550,000 for an option-packed van.

What’s a VIP to do when they need to travel somewhere, but their private jet is in the shop? Lexani Motorcars, a California-based company known for customising immensely opulent Escalades, Navigators, and the like, has the answer.

The company sells a whole line of lavish Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based “mobile offices” – fancily named the Grazia, the Malaga, the Ashford, and the Ambassador – built for executives and other monied folks to relax and get work done on the go.

And Lexani’s vans boast plenty of amenities to back up their expensive-sounding names and six-figure price tags – some features include massaging seats, marble flooring, home-theatre systems, bar stations, and built-in computers.

Not to mention, for a bit of extra cash, buyers can choose from seven levels of bulletproofing to make their journeys as worry-free as possible. A fully loaded van, a Lexani spokesperson told Business Insider, can run a customer up to $US550,000.

Check out some of Lexani’s lavish Sprinters below.


Feast your eyes on the Asgard, one of a whole lineup of fancified Mercedes-Benz Sprinters sold by California-based Lexani Motorcars.

Although Lexani’s vans are fairly unassuming from the outside, they boast all the interior amenities of a first-class cabin, and more, inside.

The Asgard, for example, comes with reclining Italian-leather seats, wine chillers, a 55-inch OLED TV with satellite, and a Bose surround-sound system.

The Ambassador steps things up a notch with its B6-level armoring, which can protect against high-powered rifles and grenade blasts.

The Ambassador doesn’t skip on luxury, either — boasting a kitchenette, leather seating, and marble floors.

In contrast, the Ambassador IV is built more for work than for play.
