VANSPORTS by Hartmann Present the Mercedes-Benz Citan MetroStream
Well, here's something different. VANSPORTS – which are, apparently, a derivative of Hartmann Tuning – have turned a normal Mercedes-Benz Citan into a hotshot delivery van. It's a bit like a senior citizen wearing trainers and a side-ways baseball cap.
So, most of the modifications are courtesy to this "MetroStream design programme". It consists of a redesigned front grille, new front bumper with sporty vents on it on it and a splitter, a rear diffuser, and side skirts even. Behind the curtains, a sport suspension kit lowers the Citan by with 25 mm. Best of all, though, is that VANSPORTS offer performance upgrades as well. Nothing too serious. Just some chip tuning, that's all. The biggest Citan engine (the 111 CDI) can gain around 18 hp and 30 newton meters in torque. That's 127 hp and 270 Nm of torque in total power. Cough in even more and you'll get the VANSPORTS electronic accelerator pedal kit which supposedly improves engine feedback and response
VANSPORTS, as the name suggests, deals with vans, and transporters, and commercial vehicles, and such: Opel's Nissans, Renaults, you name it. We think that's kind of neat. Otherwise, what would delivery companies that want to step up their game do?
Someone's at the door. Must be that thing we ordered from that other place 15 minutes ago.
