More about the car

Abloh designed the car in partnership with Mercedes-Benz chief design officer Gorden Wagener. The car was first revealed at an event in December 2022.

“Since Project Maybach was a show car, we had complete creative freedom, allowing us to collaboratively conceptualize what the future of electric travel could be,” Wagener told Dezeen in April 2022.

“Due to production requirements, we had to take a different approach to the design of the Mercedes-Maybach limited edition S-Class,” he said.
