HARD to believe, but the Sprinter van has been on sale for 20 years and to celebrate, Mercedes has launched  a limited 20th Anniversary edition.

Restricted to just 1,200 vans, you’ll spot this special Sprinter by the ‘Sprinter 20’ badging on the front wing. It has a unique option bundle added including air conditioning, sat nav, a Driver’s Comfort seat with arm rest, wheel trims and a chrome grille, worth over £2,000 – all this for just £750 more.

Over 250,000 of the Sprinters sold have been panel vans, with 71,769 chassis cab variants. The Sprinter factory capacity in Düsseldorf is 745 units a day, equating to 214,560 vehicles produced a year.

Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, added: “Mercedes-Benz has been making vans since 1896 and has pioneered new standards in safety every step of the way, with Sprinter leading from the front.

“From introducing ESP in 1995, offering the driver airbag as standard in 2000, launching Crosswind Assist in 2013, and most recently becoming the first manufacturer in the world to equip all new vans as standard, with Rescue Assist QR code stickers, we have never sat still.”
