Mercedes-Benz A-Class

On April 5, 2022, Mercedes-Maybach unveiled the final chapter of Project MAYBACH – a collaboration with the late polymath artist, Virgil Abloh. This special collaboration resulted in the creation of a limited-edition 2023 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class S 680, which will be available in the U.S. later this year with a global production run of only 150 units.

Luxury Redefined

For over a century, Mercedes-Maybach has been at the forefront of luxury experiences, and the limited-edition Maybach by Virgil Abloh continues this tradition. The vehicle’s exterior features a unique two-tone color combination, with the upper part finished in glossy Obsidian Black and the lower portion, side flanks, and special forged rims painted in a sand hue.

Inside the vehicle, the highest levels of craftsmanship are evident, with an identical two-tone color scheme. The four-seat configuration, steering wheel, doors, lower dashboard, and headliner are finished in black and sand-colored Nappa Leather, complete with sand-colored trims and strips. The window frames are painted to enhance its monolithic appearance, and a special Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh logo is inscribed on various parts of the interior.

Exquisite Details

The limited-edition Maybach S-Class features a personalized user interface, presenting the driver with an even more luxurious variation of the Maybach MBUX suite of cutting-edge technologies. Handpicked visual elements enrich the digital content, creating an even more intuitive vehicle that exudes the limited-edition’s distinctive style from exterior to interior.

Every customer will receive a special custom-made wooden box covered in sand-colored Nappa Leather, containing a 1/18 scale replica of the limited-edition car, the two car keys, and a carabiner hook. The bespoke Maybach S-Class also includes a special car cover featuring the Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh logo.

A Collaboration Beyond Cars

In addition to the limited-edition Maybach S-Class, Virgil Abloh also collaborated with Off-White™ to create a capsule collection. This collection includes sand-colored vintage washed cotton t-shirts, half-brushed cotton fleece crewnecks and hoodies, canvas baseball caps, and racing gloves crafted in canvas, neoprene, and suede.

This collaboration with Virgil Abloh is the third project with Mercedes-Benz and the second with Mercedes-Maybach. It follows the successful Project Geländewagen, which reimagined the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and Project MAYBACH: a show car that exemplified the possibilities of future electric design.
