McLaren's butterfly doors are beautiful to watch in action and incredibly expensive... something to be mindfull of when loading a 570S supercar the rear of a truck as this poor transporter found out.

London - This luxury liner has twice the torque of a Lamborghini Aventador, the pulling power of a Toyota Hilux (over 3.5 tonnes) and the same horsepower as a Mercedes-Benz C 300.

The Lamborghini of the leisure vehicle world will be unveiled to the UK public at the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2016. Meet the the Morelo Empire Liner.

A bus with a garage...

The new show-stopping super-liner from German motorhome manufacturer Morelo is equipped with premium fittings expected of a home, including under-floor heating, rain shower and even a garage, perfect for storing a car.

Over 1 million leisure vehicles are in use in the United Kingdom and the leisure vehicle industry contributes in excess of £6-billion to the UK economy through the value of holidays, vehicle sales and associated supplies and services, supporting over 130 000 jobs.

Many motorhome manufacturers are designing their vehicles to be as compact as possible but Morelo is bucking this trend with the Empire Liner, offering a luxurious and spacious interior.

The Morelo Empire Liner took a year to develop and is based on a Mercedes Atego chassis, featuring a 7.7-litre, six-cylinder engine that produces 222kW.

The Morelo Empire Liner includes a huge panoramic roof that provides views from the spacious double bed. It’s the luxurious interior features like these that has attracted A-list owners and has made it particularly popular with customers from Formula 1.

Andreas Wolfer-Heimann, Morela International sales manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be unveiling our latest luxury motorhome prototype at the Motorhome and Caravan Show this year. Being the biggest launch event in the UK, it’s an ideal opportunity for us to showcase our newest super-luxury motorhome to the UK audience.

"We’ve spent almost a year designing and developing the Empire liner and we believe motorhome enthusiasts, and the general public alike, will be impressed by the craftsmanship and attention-to-detail on display.”  

Morelo’s 100 GB model of the Empire Liner will be unveiled at the Motorhome & Caravan Show on Tuesday, October 11, with the show running until the 16 2016 at the Birmingham NEC.

It will be joined by the latest models from a host of motorhome and caravan manufacturers, including Swift, Bailey, Elddis, Coachman, Lunar, Adria and many more.
