Luxury motorhome manufacturer, Concorde, reveals new Liners
German luxury motorhome manufacturer, Concorde, has launched a series of new models in its Liner range for 2021, including the Liner 990 GI, 996 MI and 1090 GI Special Diamond Series Liner, as well as Red Edition Credo models.
Concorde typically focuses on one particular range for each model year – and the Liner is that range for 2021.
The three new models feature layouts from Concorde’s former Liner Plus models.
They are all based on the Mercedes-Benz Atego chassis. Each of the models, which have a maximum gross weight of just under 12 tonnes to up to 15 tonnes, is powered by a 7.7-litre, 6-cylinder engine with 299bhp powering the rear wheels.
The outward appearance of the new Liner generation is characterised by a large coach-style windscreen, which features a PVB film between the inner and outer glass panel to repel UV radiation and heat. The exteriors also feature newly designed rear lights and rear spoiler.
All are around 10 metres long and almost 2.5 metres wide and all can carry a Smart car in their garage (Liner 990 GI) or a Fiat 500/Abarth 500 or Mini Cooper in the Liner 1090 GI.
Space is not really an issue when it comes to the new models. The wardrobes and overhead storage lockers are generously dimensioned. A free-standing queen-sized bed is a feature in all models. This is adjacent to the spacious 'marble panel' washroom with its exclusive (optional) rainforest shower.
The kitchen has a gas cooker and optional induction hob, two stainless-steel sinks and a professional tap. It also includes an optional 177-litre compressor refrigerator (with a door that opens on either side), a 20-litre freezing compartment, a coffee maker with electric lowering facility and a microwave oven and dishwasher, which are available as options.
The living area features an L-shaped seating group and a longitudinal vis-à-vis sofa.
At the front, the cab (with drop-down bed as an option), is equipped with all the toys to make driving easy and safe. Air suspension on both axles is fitted as standard and there’s also an (optional) bird’s-eye view camera system, which offers a panoramic view and invaluable assistance when manoeuvring such a large vehicle, parking or even turning (blind spots).
The prices of the new Liner models start at around £323,000, depending on the euro/sterling exchange rate.
In addition to the new Liners, a number of new ‘Diamond Series’ special edition models have also been launched, which can be easily recognised by the conspicuous long-distance headlamps as additional body features.
The Diamond Series models get distinctive decals, frameless cab side windows and intricately crafted (leather) upholstery with an exclusive quilted pattern.
Finally, a special Red Edition series of the Credo is being launched, which feature distinctive red exterior rear view mirrors, an appropriately colourful exterior design and black privacy glazing for the habitation windows.
