The Vito is a minivan produced by Mercedes-Benz and was available as a standard panel van for cargo called Vito, or with passenger accommodations substituted for part or all of the load area called V-Class or Viano. The first generation went on sale in 1996 and the second generation was introduced in 2004. Available in both rear and four-wheel drive configurations and three lengths, two wheelbases and a choice of four petrol and diesel engines, (as well as two specialist tuned models), coupled to either a six-speed manual or five-speed TouchShift automatic transmission.
Offered here is a rare and desirable 122CDI model which boasts the largest and most powerful engine fitted to the Vito range. The W639 generation Vito had the option of the 3.0 litre, 224bhp turbo V6 diesel and was the last Mercedes-Benz van to be offered with anything over a 2.2 litre four-cylinder engine. Even rarer yet, this Jasper Blue example is the Sport-X Brabus model which boasts Brabus badging, air conditioning, full leather interior, heated front seats, satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors, Zenon headlights, tinted glass, electric side door, removable tow bar as well as 18" Brabus alloy wheels, (including the spare). To add to the rarity of this Vito, it is also a short wheelbase version, the majority of production being delivered as the long wheelbase platform. Perfect for day trips, holidays, towing, recreational use or to be converted into a camper, these Sport-X Brabus represent the peak and final swan song of the powerful and brilliant V6 122CDI Vito range. The vendor reports it to run and drive very well and it will be delivered to the auction having been freshly serviced and with a fresh MoT test certificate.
Supplied with a V5C registration document and book pack with service book showing regular service stamps. This wonderful, rare and powerful example of the Vito, is not only versatile, but also luxurious.
