The television tower, Brandenburg Gate and the victory column are tourist attractions that everyone in Berlin knows. Yet Germany’s capital city also has other highlights for van fans. Historical Mercedes-Benz vans in many different model versions and colors, including a few rarities. The photographer Linnart Unger runs the “Vans of Berlin” Instagram channel and searches the city for undiscovered van icons. In cooperation with the channel, MYVAN presents the fourth part of the shared series, an image gallery featuring the Mercedes-Benz 207 D. The “Bremer Transporter” replaced its predecessor the “Harburger Transporter” in 1977. Even at first glance, it was clear that the 207 D was a new model. With its short-hood design, large windscreen and new systems for active and passive driving safety, the van set new standards. The 207 D featured the powerful four-cylinder OM 616 diesel engine.
Even today, the “Bremer Transporter” remains a legend on wheels and is used in many different areas. It is especially popular as a camper van. The Portuguese couple, Bianca and Hugo, even rent out the 207 D to enthusiastic guests as mobile accommodation.
