A collaborative project "Project Gelän de wagen" by MERCEDES BENZ and designer Virgil Abloh. The G class, which has been a hot topic for a long time and has been renewed by the project, has been released.
Project Geländewagen is led by Virgil Abloh, the founder of OFF-WHITE and the men's artistic director of LOUIS VUITTON, and Gorden Wagener, the chief design officer of Mercedes-Benz. Joint project to do.
Designed by Virgil Abloh, the G-Class is reproduced as a wide-body racing car while emphasizing the iconic style. While having a high design such as a classic instrument panel and a subtracted dashboard, it also has the functionality of a racing car such as the seat and handle of the F1 model and the 5-point seat belt with a roll bar.
A replica of this work was put up for sale at SOTHEBY'S online auction. Bidding is scheduled to begin on September 14, local time, and the proceeds of this project will be donated to an organization that supports black students studying fashion.
