What you see in the gallery below is not an official Mercedes-AMG model, but a limited edition built by Kegger, which also celebrates 25 years of existence. Logically, only 25 copies of the special winch will be produced.
Dubbed the Sprinter Petronas Edition and featuring an F1-inspired painting, the super winch is based on the most powerful version of the Sprinter available in Europe. The 319 CDI model has a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine with 190 horsepower 45 kgfm of torque, channeled to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission. This is one of the few trailers that you will see equipped with air suspension.
Visually, it has several modifications, including a completely new front bumper with larger air intakes and a modified spoiler. The black painted radiator grille and 18-inch alloy wheels, also black, feature a thin contrasting light blue stripe that makes the look sophisticated.
In the cabin, the atmosphere is unexpectedly comfortable for a tow truck. A lot of Alcantara leather with green stitching can be found on the dashboard, seats and door panels. The additional sound insulation in combination with a premium audio system is probably a pleasant place to spend the day at work.
Of course, being a tow truck, the Sprinter Petronas Edition has a platform at the rear, accessed by two retractable ramps. There are also some large tool and cargo boxes integrated into the body.
Kegger preparer asks for € 125,000 for each unit of the super winch. This means that, at the current price, it is the equivalent of more than R $ 840 thousand, the price of a legitimate super sports car.
