Norma two-seater: the origin of beauty

The basic principles of Pilato hearses rely on design at the very highest level. This is crucial if we are to offer our customers exclusive vehicles as well as work tools of refined design and strong character, while still ensuring efficiency and functionality. As a result of increasing investment in research, development and design, we have recently expanded our production area and engineering capabilities in order to introduce exciting new models to the market. And that's how the Norma was born, the original two-seater based on the Mercedes-Benz E-class, with similar features and the same length as the Orion, but created with a clearly defined goal. With the increase in the height and width of the funeral compartment, the Norma offers even more space than the traditional two-seater model. In addition to allowing the transport of coffins of any size, the Norma is also enhanced in terms of road presence. As for the interior, the different materials and finishes have been designed to make the funeral compartment a welcoming, functional space, suitable for any funeral culture and with solutions for every need.


Jaguar AWD All Wheel Drive: instinctive control

Perfect dynamics and outstanding performance… all year round. The Jaguar XF Aurora can be equipped with the innovative Jaguar AWD system.

The concept of “all-wheel” drive is too often associated with steep slopes or heavy off-road vehicles. But why renounce total reliability and amazing dynamism on a hearse and on normal roads? Jaguar has completely revolutionised the concept of all-wheel drive with its innovative All Wheel Drive system.

The Jaguar AWD system guarantees enhanced safety on any road surface and in all weather conditions because the system detects when more tractive force is needed, and transfers all the torque requested to the front wheels to improve stability. The system adjusts constantly to find the best balance between drive and performance, so that when it establishes that the additional tractive force is no longer necessary, power is returned to the rear axle.

All Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics makes the iconic Jaguar handling even more manageable and agile, thus increasing safety in all conditions.


NEW V CLASS: Beauty has never been so practical

With the Mercedes-Benz V Class, the three-pointed star adds a new class to its line-up: an MPV with expressive charisma and some of the most modern and functional features that the segment has to offer.

As everyone knows, functionality is an essential requisite for any MPV, while comfort and style are an added pleasure, and the new V Class combines all three of these qualities like no other vehicle in its segment. Available with a choice of two wheelbases, three lengths (from 4895 to 5370 mm), three engines and a host of options, the V Class is also the ideal solution for the funeral home operator, with its elegant cabin appointed with premium materials and a particularly large and versatile load bay that can be easily outfitted for funeral transport use.

The sophisticated style and emotive visual impact of the new V Class are also ideally suited to the needs of our particular sector: at the centre of the imposing front is a vertical radiator grille with the three-pointed star, flanked by headlight clusters with full LED technology – a first for this segment.

And with exclusive pioneering safety systems that you’d expect to see in a Mercedes-Benz passenger car, the V Class ushers in a whole new generation of MPV. The interior also offers a completely new interpretation of the MPV concept: the particularly attractive dash is split into two separate parts by a three-dimensional insert creating a visual impression of airiness and giving the entire cabin a touch of sophisticated elegance.

The V Class is also equipped with all the latest generation safety systems encompassed by the Mercedes-Benz “Intelligent Drive” concept, as well as innovative aids such as the optional EASY PACK tailgate, which opens and closes electrically at the simple touch of button to make loading and unloading the load bay easier.

The extremely refined and innovative new V Class is sure to be a success in the funeral sector.
