Thoughts of “Not another low-profile coachbuilt import with a rear island bed!” soon turned to “Well, actually…” when we saw this.

If you think Dethleffs’ Pulse T7051 DBM GT is a bit of a mouthful, I wouldn’t disagree. Rather, I’m siding with editor Sarah, who saw the Pulse line-up of four coachbuilts and six A-classes at launch, describing them as “stunning”.

This is a very extensive portfolio from the marque, but let’s cut to the quick with this model, badged GT for Gran Turismo – signifying a £3000 package of styling features, inside and out.

My viewing took place at Dethleffs’ longest-serving UK dealer, Lowdhams.
