The bus-sized Variomobil Signature 1200 is powered by a 523 hp Mercedes engine. But it can also carry an additional 450 hp of Mercedes V8.
One of the most outstanding elements about it is that in its rear garage, it might be housing a Mercedes SL roadster, Porsche 911 or Mini Cooper. This means that you can park the big motorhome at camp and get around with a much more agile vehicle for the remainder of the trip.
Inside the Signature 1200’s insulated fiberglass cabin everything oozes luxury and can be customized to customer specs down to the least of the items. Available furnishings and equipment include a touchscreen-controlled induction cooktop, 190-L refrigerator, dishwasher, full bathroom with mineral stone sink, LED TV with satellite, Bose audio system, washer/dryer, leather upholstery, real wood veneers, and microprocessor-controlled ambient lighting.
The cabin sleeps four to six people and includes the option of a pull-down bed that stores above the two or four captain’s chairs in the driver cab. Because its meant to be a home, standard systems include a dual 170-Ah battery-based electrical system, up to 420 watts of solar panels, a diesel generator or fuel cell and a 500-L fresh water tank.
Gas heating and hot water are standard, and air conditioning, floor heating systems and diesel hot water heaters are available optionally. You don’t expect it to come cheap and sure enough it isn’t cheap at all, with an estimated $1 million price.
