Mercedes-Benz has introduced the newest and fastest E-Class ever, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Sedan, featured in their latest commercial, “Off the Line”.
Action Vehicle Engineering was pleased to search and source all of these fast rides! From vehicle wrapping, to transportation and on set prep, the crew at AVE can bring it all together.
This thrilling 603-horsepower V8 biturbo engine and 627 pound-feet of torque can go from 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds. Coming in Fall 2017.
This was a sweet little project to be a part of. The team at Action Vehicle Engineering was tasked with a stellar mission, creating a moon buggy.
For an upcoming commercial, the team had a short time to fabricate this vehicle to life. Although we highly doubt it will work on the moon, it does come with its own satellite, video camera and tires made for the terrain.
A new addition of restaurants have been added to the JFK International Airport food court, and Action Vehicle Engineering was glad to be a part of it.
This set of restaurants entail a more “on the go” friendly snacking for a busy airport with a few vehicles incorporated into the overall design. Similar to street or food trucks that one can find throughout the busy streets of New York, many travelers have a variety of food to choose from, depending which “truck” or section they go to.
The crew at Action Vehicle Engineering fabricated both the blue “Global Food” 1950’s Metro Van and the classic VW Bus as envisioned in the finalized concept design and planning stages of the project. All this was ensured to meet all the standard requirements for food, safety, paint, plumbing, electrical and airport regulations, as well as functionality in terms of a working food truck or restaurant.
We would like to congratulate Eddie Braun, a 54-year old stunt man with a dream, on his much anticipated success jumping over Snake River Canyon! Billy Hammon and his crew at Action Vehicle Engineering were so pleased to have been a part of this special project.
This feat was originally attempted over 40 years ago by the iconic daredevil Evel Knievel. However, the famous jump was not successful. In an effort to prove that the Knievel would have completed the jump if his parachute did not go off early, Eddie Braun began his mission.
On September 16, 2016 Eddie soared through the sky at 400 mph over the canyon in a high-powered rocket named “Evel Spirit”.
Here’s the official statement from Eddie’s public relations office:
Today, our client legendary stuntman Eddie Braun successfully executed the one stunt his childhood idol Evel Kneivel never accomplished – the famous rocket flight across Snake River Canyon.
During Evel’s original 1974 attempt, his parachute activated too early causing Evel to crash on live television. The event was the second most watched broadcast that year and brought in more ratings than the Super Bowl. Evel never performed after that. It ended his career.
Eddie joined forces with Kelly Kneivel, Evel’s son, and Scott Traux, son of Bob Truax, the original rocket design engineer to see history righted for their fathers and to fulfill a lifelong dream of Eddie’s. Bob worked on the original space shuttle and was one of NASA’s first engineers. However, despite a decorated career, he came to be widely known for the failure of Evel’s rocket.
In an effort to prove that Evel would have made it but for the parachute going off early, Eddie’s rocket, dubbed The Evel Spirit, was designed using Bob Truax’s original plans, with a few modifications for the parachute.
Today, Eddie literally soared through the sky at over 400MPH powered by steam, water and 1970’s technology which included an oxygen tank from a B50 bomber, dog food can lids, and a fuel tank from a Grumman Albatross.
“I feel like the no name third string quarterback of a junior varsity team that just won the Super Bowl,” says Braun. “My team got me there. I ran it into the end zone. We scored and won.”
San Manuel’s Indian Bingo and Casino has become “All Thrill” this season. The crew at Action Vehicle Engineering created a thrilling ride to match.
This sweet ride is packed with 5 high definition 1080p flat screen TVs and retractable speakers. But to showcase the custom San Manuel motorcycle, the team fabricated and installed a custom thick plexi-glass viewing windows, lined with color changing LED lights to enhance the effect.
The project wouldn’t seem complete without its’ full custom wrap and a nice set of custom wheels. Be sure to look out for this promotional vehicle at any San Manuel (@sanmanuelcasino) event this season.
The crew at Action Vehicle Engineering was excited to be a part of Nike’s Speed Drops Project. They brought speed to the streets of San Francisco to celebrate their Nime+ members. Select members received exclusive product delivered by NFL athletes, including All-Pros Todd Gurley, Chris Ivory, and Latavius Murray.
For the fastest speed drop, Nike thought three Lamborghinis would do the trick. All were trim wrapped in gold to match the exclusive products for three lucky Nike+ members. Please enjoy the video of the project below.
Action Vehicle Engineering was pleased to work together with Eric and TSN Advertising on this wonderful project. The AVE crew helped set up six trucks total in this Coors Light truck advertising campaign.
Three of the trucks were situated with the picturesque Rocky Mountains all across the top. The other three were fabricated to look like the actual frosty Coors Light aluminum can. Both custom jobs compliment the wraps provided by TSN Advertising.
