Mercedes-Maybach unveils limited-edition S-Class by fashion designer Virgil Abloh

The limited-edition Maybach S-Class was designed in collaboration with the late legendary fashion designer and is limited to just 150 units.

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its latest car in collaboration with legendary fashion designer, the late Virgil Abloh – a limited-edition Maybach S-class. Limited to just 150 units, the Maybach Limited Edition is based on the fully-equipped S 680 and features an exterior paint finish last seen on the Concept of the Maybach project from the end of last year. The cabin also receives trim and accents consistent with the exterior color scheme as well as unique graphics for the MBUX system. The limited edition Maybach was signed by the fashion designer in 2021 before his untimely demise.

Speaking about the project, Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, said: “I am incredibly proud of the work we have created together with Virgil. From the Geländewagen project, which set the benchmark for fashion/automotive collaborations with our iconic G-Class, to the MAYBACH project which propelled Mercedes-Maybach’s distinguished heritage into the future, with Virgil, we have truly innovated. Virgil Abloh’s limited edition Maybach exemplifies the symbiosis between innovative design and ultimate craftsmanship now available on the road.

Inside, the cabin also continues the black and sand color scheme with heavy use of Napa leather on the dash, steering, doors and seats.
