April Fools Day

Challenge: Create something for April Fool’s Day that was just real enough to plant some doubt in the public’s mind.

 

Solution: The Mercedes-AMG Sprinter63 S, a hot rod van from the same people that built the utterly mad G63 AMG 6x6.

 

Result: Lust, confusion, and international press attention. My line about it hauling more than cargo even appeared in Top Gear.

UPDATE: As of 2019, the Sprinter63 continues to irritate people.
