Eurocopter EC145, the Luxurious Helicopter from Mercedes Benz

Updated on June 27, 2010

What the famous brand for luxurious car? I think we all agree with Mercedes Benz. Mercedes Benz is one of the leading companies for luxurious car. We can easily find Mercedes Benz car all over the world. I also found thousand of Mercedes Benz car in my country. For both of old Mercedes car or the brand new Mercedes car. Mercedes Benz not only penetrates for car market but also for bus, truck and machine. Most people has this car not only for transportation but also for social status or personal pride.

A little history of Mercedes Benz Company

Who was the architect of Mercedes Benz? The architect of Mercedes Benz was Helmut Werner. He led around 90 employees for this company. Mercedes Benz was a car brand from DaimlerChrysler (formerly known as Daimler-Benz), but now this car familiar with the name Mercedes Benz. Mercedes Benz also the oldest car company in the world.. This company formed in 1871 in Stuttgart, Germany. The founder of this company is Karl Benz. The first shop of Mercedes Benz in in Mannheim near Heidelberg. In the early of 1990s, Daimler cars built in Untertürkheim (also a city district of Stuttgart) are sold successfully by an Austrian dealer named Emil Jellinek, who supplied the car with the name of his daughter, Mercedes. ( The history of Mercedez benz was taken from many sources)

Mercedes Create Luxurious Helicopter

Have you ever imagine that Mercedes will create another transportation, like air transportation? The first time I read the news that Mercedes has created an air transportation it raises a big question. Because the car was absolutely luxurious, how about this transportation? I can't imagine about that. Recently Mercedes has launched a new transportation. This transportation is luxurious helicopter. It called Eurocopter EC145. This helicopter shown at the first time at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2010 in Geneva.

When you familiar with Mercedes Benz car. You can find luxurious and modern features inside Eurocopter EC145. We can find many features on the interior side, like: flat screen video instrument and leather seat. Eurocopter EC145 also equipped by wooden floors and elegant lightning inside the cabin. All the features inspired by Mercedes Benz E-Class and Mercedes Benz S-Class.

Mercedes is also working with European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS). Good combination between two companies. So we can find the luxurious of Mercedes Benz car inside this helicopter. All the interiors made by the designer of Mercedes Benz. When you look the pictures isn't like in the helicopter, but like in the luxurious car. You can felt the ergonomic and comfortable leather seat. The larger cabin space give more space to store anything, like mountain bike, golf equipment (look the pictures below). We can also seen seat upholstery using deluxe material and a range of color for cabin and cockpit. Do you want to have fun inside Eurocopter EC145? Don't worry about that, because we can find a cool box, table, cup holder, 15-inch monitor complete with DVD player.

For the cabin layout, it also inspired of new R-class. We can use retractable windows between cockpit and cabin. Eurocopter EC145 can carry up to eight passengers. Eurocopter EC145 provides the luxury of business trip or private travel.

Do you want to buy Eurocopter EC145? I heard from www.wiki.answer.com, the price of Eurocopter EC145 around £3-£8 million or $5- $13 million dollars. But it depends on finish, equipment and other factors.

This is only in my imagination. "If I have this helicopter, I'll take you all looking around the city" I promise.

      Wow, prasetio, that's a really neat helicopter. Beautiful videos.

      Guess I'll trade in my old one. Do you think that will work? It's the model with batteries that flies around in the air with the aid of a remote. About 12 inches long.

      Thanks, Pete for share your thought about this topic. I know the price of this vehicle was too expensive. Only a rich person/millionaire and corporate could buy this helicopter. It also need big cost to built such of this helicopter. Pete, the same scheme also happen in my country. Where the people stolen the money of the citizen and they used all the money for personal interest. And corruption was become number one. I hope someone buy Eurocopter EC145 for humanity reason...amen. Good to see you again.

      People wonder where all the money goes. They wonder what the investment banker who crashed the economy with hedge funds does with all of that money. They wonder why someone would steal billions in ponzy schemes. I guess this is one of example of the must haves of those people.
