- The space-age eleMMent Palazzo has gone on sale in Dubai
- Comes complete with a colossal master bedroom and dozens of mod cons
- Has a pop up cocktail bar, underfloor heating and marble lights
- State-of-the-art homes even wash themselves after a day’s driving
The world’s most expensive motorhome has gone on sale in Dubai – covered in gold and worth a cool $3.1 million. The space-age eleMMent Palazzo comes complete with a colossal master bedroom, 40-inch TV, on-board bar, fireplace and even its own rooftop terrace. But the most impressive piece of luxury is the ‘Sky Lounge’ – at the press of a button the 40ft home transforms into a personal retreat with pop up cocktail bar, underfloor heating and extravagant marble lighting.
The success of the vehicle has been a hit among oil-rich Arab Sheikhs – the state-of-the-art homes even wash themselves after a day’s driving through the Middle Eastern desert. Although the 40ft vehicle comes in a stunning gold, it is also available in white. A spokesman for Marchi Mobile said: ‘People never fail to notice innovation, but rarely does the excitement for it last. ‘That is how it began for us. But now – after many years of development – we sparked a fire in luxury mobility.
‘The eleMMent series from Marchi Mobile is a new class within the premium segment of vehicles, targeted to enthuse lovers of the extraordinary. ‘Our goal has not only been to introduce a new line of luxury vehicles – but usher in a new era. This is done by a perfect masterpiece that sets itself apart at first sight.’
The private jet on wheels is designed to cater for businessmen on the road, wealthy families on their travels or global superstars on tour. Despite living space banishing stereotypical pokey caravans, the cost per sq ft comes at a pocket-busting premium – costing double the equivalent amount of some of London’s finest homes.
