Tailgating is a huge part of the Alabama football experience, and now, a few lucky Crimson Tide fans with $200,000 to spare will have the chance to do it in real style. Nick Saban teamed with Mercedes-Benz to design the Nick Saban Signature Series Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, a nine seat luxury van that was pretty much built for a luxurious game day.
AL.com has more on the Sprinter.
Built on a Mercedes-Benz 3500 Sprinter chassis, the vehicle has conference-style seating for up to seven people in the mid cabin and two in the cockpit. There are recliner-styled heated and air-cooled seats with integrated power massage.
The audio and video entertainment systems include two 40-inch LED TVs, as well as a Samsung 4K UHD 48-inch curved LED TV media system located at the rear of the vehicle.
Among the other features are an audiophile quality home theater processor and receiver, mobile DirecTV satellite system and LED accent lighting throughout the cabin.
15 of these vans were produced, and they're being sold exclusively at the Mercedes-Benz in Birmingham. If they're a hit, hopefully Saban will do another crazy commercial for the 2016 edition next year.
