The legacy of path-blazing designer Virgil Abloh — who died last year — continues, with the launch of a luxury car from Mercedes-Benz.
The German car brand’s new limited-edition bespoke Maybach S-Class S680 model was designed in collaboration with the former artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton.
The three-box sedan is the work of Abloh, designed before he died in November, in partnership with Mercedes-Benz‘s chief design officer Gorden Wagener.
Alongside the sleek new vehicle, of which there are only 150 available, there’s also a collection of matching streetwear designed by the late fashion designer’s Off-White brand.
The fully equipped Mercedes-Maybach S-Class S680 sports a unique two-tone colour combination, with the upper part of the car lacquered in obsidian black, and the lower part and rims painted in a golden sand-coloured hue.
