It only takes one quick glance to realise that this is no ordinary motorhome, but there's much more to this dramatic creation that just its startling looks.

Named the Elemment Palazzo, this motormansion is made by Austrian company Marchi Mobile and boasts the kind of figures that dwarf even the most luxurious of caravans.

The lavish interior measures 215 sq ft, but a slide-out section doubles this to 430 sq ft, and the internal headroom of 8'2" is more enough to satisfy even the tallest of guests.

Luxury features on-board include a working fireplace, under-floor heating, a 40-inch satellite TV, and an en-suite bathroom for the (admittedly garish) master bedroom.

There is also a separate bar area and a pop-up roof terrace for enjoying the sunshine, but all this luxury doesn't come cheap.

King of the road

Weighing in at a hefty 20-tonnes, it takes a 510bhp engine (not to mention an HGV license) to drag this juggernaut up to its top-speed of 93mph and, somewhat predictably, fuel consumption is very low at an eye-watering 13 mpg.

Fortunately Marchi Mobile has gone for a sculpted 'biomorphic' front-end, which makes this playboy's toy around 20 per cent more aerodynamic.

Practicality has been kept in mind, as the Elemment Palazzo features glow-in-the-dark paint so that visibility at night is never an issue.

Prices start at a cool £1.9m, but the optional extras are theoretically endless, with the company even offering to cover the whole thing in diamonds - if that's your kind of thing.

Protecting such an enormous investment is clearly a highly priority, so it comes fitted with CCTV for added peace of mind.

However, if you're budget doesn't quite stretch that far then you might be better off buying a house in the exclusive London neighbourhood of Hampstead. The Daily Mail points out that this would be much cheaper per square foot.
