As an extreme example of a company unable to “ read the room, ” Volkner, a mobile home builder from Germany, showed off his most troublesome creation to date: a $ 7.7 million luxury motor home with a built-in garage that can accommodate a Bugatti. A $ 3 million Chiron that boasts three times the power of its prime mover.
Like monstrously expensive behemoth TVs shown at CES every year whose only purpose To get the attention of the likes of Samsung and Sony, Volkner (and other luxury van manufacturers), take advantage of the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon trade show to showcase incredibly luxurious mobile homes where price is more important than practicality. At this year’s show, Volkner debuted its Performance S motorhome, and while it’s not the largest RV ever built, it is without a doubt the most unusual way to spend festive glamping in style.
Performance S stand out A special feature is the built-in garage located under the RV, which uses a retractable platform to store more powerful toys such as jet skis, ATVs and motorcycles. This is a feature that the company actually introduced a few years ago, and it makes it easier to travel in a separate vehicle, since there is nothing to tow behind the RV itself, which is already long enough to make it difficult to get around on the roads. However, for the new Performance S, Volkner made sure the sliding garage was large enough to house the 430bhp Bugatti Chiron. an optional upgrade adding $ 3 million to the van’s $ 2.4 million base price. It’s not exactly the perfect vehicle for camping, but whoever pays that kind of money for a motorhome doesn’t seem to plan on obeying the country’s lack of amenities in the country’s national parks.
The built-in garage isn’t the only feature of the Performance S. travelers Here you will find a well-appointed master bedroom with a raised island bed and a full-size bathroom with separate shower. (This is all facilitated by a retractable extension on one side of the vehicle.) When parking The Performance S is powered by a battery pack that can be charged with a 2000W rooftop solar panel or a gas generator. Other optional upgrades include an espresso machine that stows away in the kitchen counter, a wine cabinet, and even a dedicated office workstation to keep travelers can extend their adventures.
But why stop there? If the thought of your RV produces absurdity pollution levels with an added weight of over 4000 pounds on board the vehicle doesn’t bother you, you probably don’t mind noisy pollution either. Volkner is also redesigning the Performance S with over $ 350,000 Burmester sound system that is fully adapted to the unique dimensions and shape of the RV’s cockpit. Will anyone buy the Performance S with each of these options? It’s hard to imagine that someone with enough money to spend over $ 7 million on a motor home would really be interested in spending time in a motor home above an upscale hotel, but it’s clear that The market for these monsters still exists, given that Volkner releases new models from year to year.
