This year, 46-year-old race car driver Hélio Castroneves is on a mission to do something no other driver has ever done before—win his fifth Indy 500.
When he’s not training or traveling at 200-plus miles per hour around the track, Castroneves can be found relaxing and preparing for race day in his top-of-the-line, 45-foot American Coach luxury motorhome. The American Coach brand is part of REV Recreation Group, Inc., a manufacturer of Class A motorhomes, and a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc.
Castroneves worked closely with the American Coach team to fully customize the RV to meet his specific needs.
On the exterior, Castroneves’ motorhome boasts a customized finish of glossy black with bold red accents.
On the interior, he moved the location of the kitchen and specified white cabinetry for a fresh, contemporary look. The rest of the coach features modern, teak-style cabinetry. For his daughter and her friends, Castroneves wanted ultra-comfortable custom bunk beds so each bunk has its own TV and an electric shade that can be lowered for privacy.
Other luxury amenities include: massaging captain’s chairs in the cab; heated tile flooring throughout; a full-size, residential stainless-steel refrigerator and special-order quartz countertops in the kitchen; 1½ baths; and a master suite with a king-sized bed, full bath with his-and-her vanities, walk-in waterfall shower, wardrobe storage, and a stacked washer and dryer conveniently concealed in a closet.
“At the track, my American Coach is my home,” says Castroneves. “It’s where I relax before races and where my family makes their home base when they come to the track. My American Eagle is designed just the way I like it and has everything I need to prepare for race day.”

New American Eagle® Floorplan Debuts
Earlier this year, American Coach unveiled its new 45E floorplan for the American Eagle. The 45E, with a starting MSRP of $940,000, is a Class A Diesel ultra-luxury motor coach, featuring an innovative kitchen design with a center island, and an abundance of exquisite amenities for discerning travelers. The 45E was specifically designed to deliver the most home-like entertaining experience in the industry.
The stand-out attraction of the American Eagle 45E is its reconfigured kitchen. Like a residential layout, the galley features a center island that houses an induction cooktop and wine chiller, making it the perfect spot for cocktails and appetizers. Across from the gorgeous Cambria quartz-topped island is a convenient bar-style dinette. Above the dinette is a picture window that delivers natural light and an expansive view of the outdoors. The opposite side of the spacious room has a high-end sink, dishwasher that comes standard, and full-sized French-door stainless steel refrigerator.
