Popular comedian and radio presenter Jalang’o has acquired a brand new ride. The comedian, who is one of the highest paid acts in Kenya, has bought a new Mercedes V Class family van.
Jalang’o announced his new purchase on Instagram. “Guys i ordered this monster last month @carportalkenya Iam told its here….cant wait to share with you the images! This is Mercedes V Class for the Family and all those road trips…@carportalkenya just called me that my V is here!! 28 days straight!!!” he said.
This latest acquisition adds to a collection of other high end vehicles the presenter owns. His vehicle collection includes a LandRover Discovery and Mercedes convertible.
The V–Class is actually pretty good in this department thanks to a brisk 0-62mph sprint time of just 9.1 seconds and 480Nm of torque available for overtaking. There are two different body styles: a long wheelbase and an extra-long wheelbase. The former is available with seven seats only, while the latter is upgradable to eight seats if you need even more room for passengers. On top of that there are two trim levels – SE and Sport – and two engines to choose from, including the 220 Bluetec and 250 Bluetec turbodiesels.
