The Mercedes Eurocopter EC145 helicopter is built by EADS and has received the styling touch of the German carmaker.
Designed at the automotive manufacturer’s studio in Como, Italy, the EC145 is a mid-sized, twin-engine helicopter, which can accommodate eight passengers.
Interior features include a flat panel video screen, leather seating, and a modular design to allow for a mix of cargo and personal space.
In addition to the wood floors and ceiling, the cabin uses ambient lighting inspired by the automaker’s E- and S-Class cars.
In the past Eurocopter sold 315 EC145s around the world, and hopes to sell even more Mercedes Benz-style EC145’s now that “the order book officially opens now.”
“Eurocopter’s cooperation with Mercedes-Benz brings together the world’s leading producer of corporate and business helicopters with the automobile manufacturer that sets global standards for luxury and style,” said Olivier Lambert, Eurocopter’s Senior Vice President for Sales and Customer Relations.
“By combining the expertise of both companies, we are uniting creativity, performance and precision engineering to giving the EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style its exceptional character and unmistakable personality.”
