I further indicated that space-age eleMMent Palazzo had gone on sale in Dubai for a cool £2 million, the equivalent of $3.1 million U.S. dollars.
Nowadays, you can’t help but pay a lot for a feature-laden motorhome. However, the expensive madness goes over the top with this opulent slightly bizarre luxury RV selling for a staggering $3 million in sunny Dubai.
The eleMMent Palazzo is made by an Austrian company called Marchi Mobile. Responding to the reception by American car enthusiasts of its remarkable vehicles and recognizing the importance of the US for its growth plans, the group opened a wholly-owned subsidiary in Aiken, South Carolina on January 27, 2014.
The Palazzo features two floors of entertainment and extravagance, with a giant master suite, multiple bars, and a liftable “flybridge” lounge up top.
It also features a pop-up cocktail lounge, a living room complete with a fireplace and a ginormous 40-inch TV set, and a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
The party piece of the eleMMent Palazzo is the Sky Lounge, a rooftop terrace that can be deployed or retracted at the simple press of a button. As if that wasn’t enough lavishness, then what about underfloor heating everywhere and ambient marble lighting?
If the weather isn’t conducive to rooftop cocktails, you can extend the driver’s side slide-out, increasing interior space by 80 percent. Marchi’s failure to incorporate a helipad is, to say the very least, rather disappointing.
From the conference/dining table to the entire lounge, you have the option of spreading the chassis out to suit your needs and retract when not needed. The tables and extra furniture are perfectly retractable to create the ambience you desire for special events, a small conference, or family reunion.
The 510 horsepower eleMMent coaches come configured with everything from mobile internet, a working fireplace recommended for use only when parked, streaming video surveillance, fog machine, and customized paint job that glows in the dark.
The eleMMent Palazzo combines the feel of a luxury home with a dual-sport exhaust system with carbon diffuser, 28-inch alloy wheels, single arm windscreen wiper, and aerodynamic design, all of which are responsible for the supreme riding experience.
According to Marchi Mobile, the strange-looking design—described by some as ugly—is aerodynamic enough to give a fuel efficiency boost of about 20 percent along with what I would assume is a fairly tremendous view of the road. When compared to a similarly sized monstrosity, I imagine.
Another appealing feature is it can even clean itself after a dusty day of motoring through the desert.
The ultra-luxury RV can reach 93 mph despite its 44,000-pound (22-ton) weight.
A remote monitoring system lets you keep an eye on your rig while you’re out overindulging in some Monte Carlo cafe, and allows you to set the interior lighting to your liking well ahead of your return. Which raises the question, if you have a $3 million RV, why would you ever leave it in the first place?
A step up from the Palazzo is the eleMMent Viva–V.I.P. shuttle.
The Viva starts where the Palazzo leaves off but features a chauffeur booth and six high-end lounge and massage chairs that recline for sleeping.
