Good Things Take Time
According to Samuel Klassenit, Klassen’s COO, customizing one V-Class can take up to 4 months. This largely depends on the options picked by customers. Some clients may need extra controls, special leather, a toilet, or special multimedia systems. Klassen also has in its product range stretched and armored vehicles. These can take up to one year to build.
Price of Admission
According to Klassenit, their most expensive build currently is the Range Rover Autobiography. It’s armored and stretched by 1 meter. It includes multiple options that add onto its luxurious edge. The team at Klassen makes sure that such vehicles are comfortable for travel. The Range Rover is currently priced at over $1 million.
