Hartmann SP5 Conference interiorBelieve it or not, Hartmann isn't all about high-performance vehicles. The company just showed off its latest take on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. The SP5 Conference boasts an interior inspired by the trappings of Air Force One and features front seats that can swivel 180 degrees to face rear passengers. You know, for conferencing and the like.

A small table can be folded into place and boasts swivel function of its own. Beyond the rear, forward-facing seats, a kitchenette with cabinet space, a Nespresso coffee machine and a handful of 12-volt outlets for other appliances. Ambient lighting spread throughout the cabin helps set the mood indoors, and extensive insulation work keeps the interior cozy even when the weather isn't.

Of course, The SP5 Conference couldn't wear the Hamann name without a few exterior flourishes thrown into the mix. The van is equipped with a complete body kit, including a new front fascia, side sills and rear valance. Massive 20 inch wheels are part of the exterior treatment as well.

      You also interchange 'HarTmann' and 'HaMann' which are not the same at all.

      Looks like Abe Lincoln's top hat with wheels

      Why does a rolling cereal box need an air dam? Interior is nice, though.

      But surely having a conference whilst driving is dangerous?

      Damn, they released it just a little too late for me to ride in style to SXSW. Maybe next year!

        It would have been VERY cool if the Sprinter had a manual transmission however I think unfortunately it is an auto. The shifter very much looks like a manual transmission shifter however if you look at the pedals there is a wide brake pedal and no clutch pedal present. Even with the auto, this is one cool van. I would have never thought I would have ever seen a Sprinter that even remotely looked good. This one is down right bad ass.

        Saw that! This can't work out well. Stick shifting, going over bumps and through turns while trying to get up and serve your co-working coffee from the various appliances in the back.
