The two-seater coupe reflects Abloh craftsmanship with its contrast lines and big proportions. It rides on big off-roading tires and has underbody paneling to handle any terrain. You will also find a large roof rack and high beam lights that make off-roading an exciting adventure.
Mercedes-Benz granted Wagener and Abloh complete freedom with the 20-foot-long Project Maybach. The result is a long-hooded electric car with circular headlights and chrome vertical trim pieces underneath the spanning lamp bar.
