Have you ever heard of a helicopter that’s exclusively designed for business and pleasure? No? Well, I present you the luxurious Mercedez Benz helicopter. This super posh helicopter is made possible when Eurocopter teamed up with Mercedez Benz for this project. EC145 Mercedes Benz helicopter was unveiled during the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2010 in Geneva. Inspired by the design of the automaker’s high end vehicles, the luxurious EC145 represents the design language of Mercedes Benz that has a passion for classic. EC145′s interior design was created in the Mercedes Benz Advanced Design Studio in Como, Italy. It is furnished with comfortable seats made of deluxe materials. Elegant woods were also used to epitomize the grandeur that is Mercedes Benz. The ambient lighting of this helicopter can be adjusted to a number of different color and brightness settings like that of S and E-Class vehicles to guarantee the traveler a smooth transition and won’t receive a shock to their system when transferring from their car to the helicopter or vice versa.
The seats can be configured to accommodate eight passengers in one flight. Interior convenience is also improved as all the seats are rail-mounted so they can be easily rearranged into several seating configurations to suit all the passengers. Another great thing about this high end helicopter is that the seats can even be removed to provide space for luggage on the floors and walls. This helicopter has an undoubtedly outstanding interior. The people behind this whole shebang are just geniuses.
“We are very pleased to have realized the first product of ‘Mercedes-Benz Style’ with Eurocopter,” added Prof. h.c. Dr. Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz. “The interior design of the EC145 ‘Mercedes-Benz Style’ helicopter represents the classic passion of the Mercedes-Benz design language and fulfills the very highest expectations in terms of elegance, luxury and comfort.”
The only one of its kind, this Mercedes Benz helicopter is priced at approximately $8.5 million. It is reported that the helicopter was sold to a European corporate buyer.
