Designed in partnership with Mercedes‑Benz Group AG Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener in 2021, the vehicle was finalised before Abloh’s untimely passing in November 2021 and is available in a limited run of 150 units.

The fully-equipped Mercedes‑Maybach S‑Class S680 features an exterior with a unique two-tone colour combination; while the upper part of the vehicle is lacquered in a glossy obsidian black, the lower part, side flanks and special forged rims are painted in a sand hue.

The two-tone colour scheme continues in the interior, where the four-seat configuration, steering wheel, doors, lower dashboard and ceiling are lined in black and sand-coloured nappa leather, complete with sand coloured décor trims and strips.

All of the customers of this strictly limited run will receive a custom-made wooden box covered in sand-coloured nappa leather emblazoned with the Mercedes‑Maybach and Virgil Abloh logo, which includes a 1/18 scale replica of the limited-edition car, two car keys and a carabiner hook.

Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer at Mercedes-Benz Group, said: “I’m incredibly proud of the work we have created in collaboration with Virgil. From Project Geländewagen, which set the benchmark for fashion/automotive collaborations with our iconic G‑Class, to Project Maybach which brought the distinguished Mercedes‑Maybach heritage into the future, together with Virgil we truly broke new ground. The limited-edition Maybach by Virgil Abloh exemplifies the symbiosis between innovative design and ultimate craftsmanship now available on the road.”
