Check out the luxurious Mercedes V-Class that has been modified by Dilip Chabbria for Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan.
What would you do if you owned a car worth at least a quarter to a crore, made by one of the biggest car brands in the entire world, and with almost all the luxury you can imagine? How about customising it!? If you’re sufficiently rich, that would be a popular opinion! Recently, Hrithik Roshan got some custom work done by the folks at DC2, Dilip Chhabria's resurrected design shop, on his Mercedes V-Class!

Mercedes-Benz is known for crafting the finest of automobiles there are. The cars look brilliant on the outside, and have an exquisite interior, stylish as well as comfy. Still, there is always room for improvement, as showcased by Mr Dilip Chhabbria. His design firm, DC2, specialises in custom luxury interiors, which usually attracts a lot of celebrities. Madhuri Dixit-Nene also got her Toyota Innova Crysta modified by DC2. Let’s see all the changes Hrithik Roshan got on his MPV.
The second row features rear-facing captain chairs
The magic of the customisation lies in the rear passenger cabin of the car. There are two rows of seats in the back- the second row with captain chairs facing backwards and the third row with sofa seats facing forwards. The sofa seats get the additional benefits of near-horizontal recline and foldable footrests, which can turn the seats into a bed! The ambience of the cabin is uplifting, with ambient mood lighting, reading lights, wood and chrome inserts everywhere, and aircraft-style ceiling-mounted AC vents. There is also a refrigerator and centre table on offer. The windows feature electrically-operated blinds, which help block all outside light and sights. Of course, there are lights mounted on the ceiling, which will brighten up the cabin instantly.

The specs of the car remain unchanged. The car still draws power from a 2.2-litre diesel engine, capable of generating a maximum power of 163 PS and a peak torque of 380 Nm. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission. The base price of the Mercedes V-Class is Rs. 68.4 lakh, and goes all the way up to Rs. 1.46 crore for the top-spec “Marco Polo’ trim. The cost of the interior modification job is around Rs. 9.5 lakh (excluding taxes), which isn’t a lot considering all the bells and whistles on offer here.
