Subscriptions & booklets

M it Norbert Brenner, the eight-time German champion in the hill climb behind the wheel, the previous top speed for series motorhomes was improved by a whopping 15 km /h in July 2012. So far, the Hymer Car has been considered the fastest motorhome in the world with a top speed of 207 km /h.

Record drive in series condition

The record-breaking camper is powered by the three-liter V6 diesel from the Mercedes Viano, which, thanks to modifications to the engine electronics and intake area by the company Evotech, generates 261 hp. A Goldschmitt chassis with modified dampers and springs, lowering and 19-inch tires ensure better road holding.

If you can't go fast enough on the drive to the campsite, you can look forward to the new record was set up with the Westfalia Jules Verne, with the exception of the small modification to the engine in series condition and street legal. The fastest camper in the world can therefore also be bought by every customer. The Westfalia-Goldschmitt team deliberately refrained from expanding the equipment in the interests of weight reduction.

The Westfalia Jules Verne is the first Westfalia model with two separate single beds in the rear. The Mercedes Viano serves as the basis. The two-tone special edition Edition 60 is limited to 60 copies and comes with leather upholstery, navigation device and parking aid as standard. The edition model, which costs 68,900 euros, is powered by a 2.2-liter diesel with 163 hp. A 224 hp 3.0-liter V6 can be installed for an extra charge of around 3,000 euros.

At the Caravan Salon at the end of August 2012 in Düsseldorf, the record-breaking vehicle will be on display alongside other Westfalia models.
