Good news for Alabama fans: For the low, low price of $200,000, you can tailgate Crimson Tide games in a Mercedes van with your coach’s autograph embroidered on the seats. 

Nick Saban is the co-owner of a Mercedes dealership in Alabama, which has designed and produced a nine-seat luxury van with three televisions, a cooler, hardwood floors and massage chairs, because the only thing as American as college football is luxurious excess. 

AL.com was there when Saban helped unveil the beast at an event on Wednesday night. The dealership also released a very melodramatic video that will make you overdose on buzzwords. 

If you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to act fast. Only 15 are being produced this year.
