For those who like to work when they travel – and can afford a chauffeured Mercedes – news today of the iPad Car! High end tuning shop Brabus has created iBusiness, a mobile office on wheels.
Based on the Mercedes-Benz S600, the Brabus iBusiness four-seater luxury sedan packs in a range of multimedia features, including two iPads in the rear seats with Bluetooth keyboards and mouse, an ultra-small Mac minicomputer under the rear shelf and a 64GB Apple iPod Touch. The German super tuners have fitted the Mercedes S600 iBusiness with a 15.2-inch TFT display with 16:9 aspect ratio and USB 2.0 ports in the rear compartment to hook up peripherals to the Mac. You can connect to the internet via UMTS and HSDPA. The two iPads control the complete BRABUS multimedia system and the car’s standard S-Class COMAND system with all functions such as radio, navigation system and telephone. [Born Rich]
With this setup, I don’t know that I’d want to get out of the car when I arrived at my destination.
The car’s not too shabby either, with a 12 cylinder engine capable of 750 horsepower, 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4 seconds, a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), and custom wood and leather interior.
According to Born Rich, Brabus is ready to equip any Mercedes S-class sedan with the multimedia package. If you have to ask the price, you probably can’t afford it.
