KTW Tuning has taken a simple urban delivery van and turned it into something better suited for hauling a band to its next underground gig.
It's not a common sight to see a Mercedes-Benz van receive the attention of aftermarket tuners. But German tuning outfit KTW has taken on the challenge of making a delivery van cool. The Mercedes Citan is based on the Renault Kangoo series, the result of a partnership between the German automaker and the Renault-Nissan Alliance. But KTW has managed to take the urban runabout a step further by adding a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels with five double spokes, fitted with a new set of low-profile tires.
Other additions include a sport suspension and shorter springs that lower's the vehicle's height for improved handling. With a final touch of red brake calipers on all four wheels, the KTW Citan looks more ready to haul a band to its next gig instead of delivering flowers. The total tuning kit is priced at €1,999.
