In Wolfsburg Germany, the VW factory has designed and developed a crazy Crafter van titled the ‘Atacama’ which was named in honour of the world’s driest desert in Chile, South America, because we guess that’s what it does to your bank balance after you buy it.
Inside this beat it has a 2.5L, 5-cylinder engine that pumps out 164hp. It’s got a 6 speed gear boxed, teamed up with a 4×4 wheel drive system by Achleitner, a pro in this line of work.
Out of the engine comes some very nice details, such as an aluminium added to the front grill, lights and air intakes, this gives it that unique ‘space ship’ style. At the back if you look closely the ladder is actually shaped around the VW Crafter logo, to let everyone know your a VW Crafter fanatic. One large feature that truly makes it stand out is the custom side windows which happen to look like a c. Now there’s been no pictures released of the interior but our bet is that this section allows for a bed to be hooked in, or some kind of collapsible storage unit that needs a strong metal structure to be placed there. Or, even bunk beds for the kids!
Unfortunately only 100 of these VW Crafter units will be created, no doubt they have all been pre-ordered but it’s good to know that one day we could be lucky enough to see of these road unicorns gliding around for us to drool at in jealousy. Could you see yourself in this Campervan, or is it slightly too extravagant?
