The specification and design of each conversion is unique and with the firm's focus on the interior, customers can assured the highest degree of luxury.


Carisma Auto Design sales and marketing director, Clive Drake, said: “The Mercedes-Benz Viano conversion is our flagship model, as it is the ultimate in discreet luxury travel.

"Many of our clients are high-profile heads of states, celebrities or business people, it is therefore not always possible for them to travel around in a conspicuous luxury limousine, however they still want the luxury and comfort that is provided by such a vehicle, this is where the Viano from Carisma comes in.

“Satisfying special and unusual requests is a key part of our specialist skills and services. Clients come to us because they know that we can achieve the impossible and deliver a vehicle to them that exceeds their expectations.

Some of the recent requests have been crystal ash trays, champagne flutes, integrated premium pen sets, customised seat embroidery, massive screens and refrigeration units.
