      It looks like a Sprinter with the headlights separated from the grille.

      Yeah Stoneman, I can imagine some electrician taking it to a race track even as I type...

      Let's hope it comes stateside.

      It'd be nice to have a choice other than a Freightliner/Dodge badged Mercedes Sprinter.

      Or at least force some more options onto the MBZ list.

      Those are ugly. But oddly enough, they can come with a 6-speed manual transmission. Can you imagine taking this thing on a race track?
