Mercedes-Benz and Pioneer create sound system on wheels 11 January 2012

Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Pioneer GB to create Project-X – the ultimate DJ van with Pioneer's world record holding Sound Pressure Level in-car entertainment products.

The Project-X vehicle is based on a Mercedes-Benz Vito 122CDI Sport-X Dualiner commercial vehicle, with a range-topping turbo-charged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, producing 224bhp and 440Nm, reaching 60mph in 8.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 122mph.

Inside the vehicle, which features almost £25,000 worth of Pioneer kit, there are two 15in competition class SPL subs and four 10in Champion Series subs for bass response. The vehicle also comes complete with two Pioneer CDJs and a state of the art mixer. The total system features eight amplifiers using four batteries and a 300A power supply, with speaker power handling capability of 30,050 watts!

As for the special edition Vito Sport-X, that includes a Brabus sport steering wheel, gear lever in black leather with Brabus emblem. Other features include lowering springs, chrome sidebars, Sports exhaust, metallic paint, tinted glass, colour coded bumpers and chrome grille and tailgate trim.

Says Steve Bridge, van sales and marketing director for Mercedes-Benz UK: "Project-X not only sounds awesome, but it looks amazing too. The sheer power from this van, both from the engine and the sound system, is epic and needs to be seen to be believed. The machine is simply amazing."
