Geiger made the one-off for the TV program Galileo on the Pro 7 channel in Germany.

The tuner calls it "St. Nick's new company vehicle."

To compliment the striking exterior the the interior leather and carpeting are all red.

In the cabin there is a widescreen TV, integrated Thermos cans and a heated stainless-steel box for food.

There's also a special rear luggage rack that holds two snowboards along with hockey sticks and curling stones - including the traditional sled.
