Inside Hrithik Roshan’s custom-built Mercedes Benz V-Class by Dilip Chhabria [Video]
DC Designs or DC2 is one of the oldest and best known customization garages in India. For this reason, most actors or famous personalities also like to modify their vehicles from DC only. DC2 is led by Dilip Chhabria. Here we have a video of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class modified by DC Designs for famous Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan.
In the video it can be seen that the interior of the V-Class has been completely changed. It is now luxurious and is finished in beige. There are also wood and chrome accents and mood lighting to give the cabin a premium feel.
The highlight of the cabin is the airplane-style VIP seats that can recline and have dedicated leg support. The VIP seats can be fully reclined so that a person can also take a nap there. There are two other seats which can be folded away when not in use. All functions are controlled by a control panel located in the middle of the two seats.
There are huge light panels placed on the roof to illuminate the entire cabin. The reading lights are separate and are installed on the roof. There is also a central table which can be folded away when not in use. A mini fridge has also been installed to keep drinks cold. This modified V-Class should serve as a mini van and will also be used to travel to film sets.
This is not the first time that an actor has customized his vehicle into a vanity van. Bollywood stars often have personalized vanity vans. For example, Shahrukh Khan customized a Volvo B9R coach. This modification was also made by DC Designs. It is equipped with a 4K television and an Apple TV. There is a dedicated kitchen and the entire coach benefits from mood lighting. Salman Khan also owns a custom vanity modified by DC Designs. It is finished in leather trim with wooden inserts. It has an LED TV, a small bathroom and reclining seats. Sanjay Dutt’s vanity bus has also been customized by DC Designs. It’s based on a Volvo bus and comes with a TV, mini-bar, ambient lighting and a top-of-the-line music system.
Hrithik Roshan also owns other luxury vehicles. His garage includes Rolls Royce Ghost, a few Mini Coopers, Mercedes-Benz Maybach S650, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Land Rover Range Rover and a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Only the Mercedes-Benz V-Class was specially modified.
The V-Class is very popular among the wealthy. Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan was one of the first owners of the V-Class when it was launched. V-Class prices start at Rs. 71.10 lakhs ex-showroom. It is offered in five variants. There is Expression, Exclusive, Elite, Marco Polo Horizon and Marco Polo. The top-end Marco Polo variant costs Rs. 1.46 Crores ex-showroom.
