Project Geländewagen – the first outcome of a collaboration that is a first of its kind between Mercedes-Benz and Chief Creative Director and Founder of Off-White and Men’s Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Virgil Abloh – was unveiled via a unique digital launch event. The conceptual design project, led by Mercedes-Benz Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener and Abloh, used the Mercedes-Benz G-Class to explore ways of disrupting future perceptions of luxury. The result is a distinctive manifestation of the G-Class as never seen before. Compelled to support the arts at a critical time, a replica of the design piece will be auctioned as part of Sotheby’s Contemporary Curated, one of the auction house’s most revered series which is defined by the unique perspective of a different influential tastemaker each year, with all proceeds going to a charity that supports international creative communities. Advanced bidding will begin on 14 September 2020.

“With Project Geländewagen we create a unique artwork that showcases future interpretations of luxury and the desire for beauty and the extraordinary. The result is something between reality and future,” says Gorden Wagener, Mercedes-Benz Chief Design Officer. “The collaboration with Virgil has seen two distinct design philosophies unite, for a one-of-a-kind re-imagination of the G that continues to celebrate the extraordinary at its core.”

uranus as a boy says:

yall stop hating its a design and a car to have in a collection not to drive around lmao, its obviously a nice & different thing in the industry. clearly an art piece

Seán says:

doesn’t look artistic to me at all, just looks like a g wagon that’s been taken to los santos customs in gta. really uninspired.

also the animation of it is terrible, surely mercedes could’ve gotten a good animator…

Harpreet Singh says:

Hint:it was not sold parties were not interested

FKP37 GAMING says:

It’s kind a plastic toy car🤣

JoneyyOG says:

The only good thing about this car is that there is just one 😂

Frederik Likesgames says:

with the XX in the front lights, the car is truly ashames of itself, "PLEEESE DONT LOOK AT ME"

Ricky says:

Why the hell are they making a street tuned g wagen ? No logic ! G wagens were meant to be driven offroad ! Why would you have astreet tuned SUV when it would not follow the characteristics there after ! Just develop a great track oriented car with a v12 ! Hell , mercedes benz is killing their v12 ! And instead making a useless stuff !

Games Lover says:

With fridge aerodynamics in package.

Morice Schneeberger says:

What did you expect? This is what abloh does and always did… he is not the head of two very important fashion houses for nothing

Nika L says:

Wtf is this shit

junaid vally says:

Virgil abloh sucks. This vehicle design sucks. Cake boss would have done a better job

Megabrain45 I says:

suede * says:

Starman says:

Nate Escalante says:

It’s sad that some old millionaire is going to win this & lock it away for the rest of its life

Makis Rouvas says:

What the fuck

rafa rodriguez says:

Worst shit ever made

Nickolas Geyfman says:

I love it but idk if choosing a g-wagon was the best sullouete

Pepe2727 says:

This is hell

nicki n6ck9 says:

This is art. The hole car industry is so boring. “If it’a good – don’t change it” BRO WTF?! Why so few people really get this beauty. Travis Scott could put this car in it’s perfect environment. It’s like clothes – I guess the majority of the people who are complaining have a whack style #nofront

Madget says:

Astounding tastelessness. One of the worst custom of G. You leave the project right now.
