For the discerning Mercedes-Benz buyer, their designo program incorporates an exclusive set of interior and exterior options that make for a bespoke automobile. Not merely a different palette to choose from, the paint and leather are of a higher quality than regular production models.
Since designo has been an unquestioned success, they are now taking it to the next level. In a press release dated December 4th, Daimler dished out the details of the new designo manufaktur program. The first vehicle to receive this treatment will be the Geländewagen (G-Class). The classic “G wagen” has been in production in Austria by Magna Steyr since 1979.
Since it has a dedicated production line, it allows for the hand-finishing of the finer details. The Manufaktur hand-finishing section will ensure that stitching, paint, and final assembly are done by skilled craftspeople, not machines.
The new interior colors offered in the program are designo leather saddle brown, deep-sea blue, silk beige and mocha brown. For the G63 and G65, buyers can also choose from a DINAMICA package that adds an AMG flat-bottom steering wheel, along with microfiber trim for the dash, seats and headliner.
Since the G-Class always seems to be last in line to get the latest options, also announced in the press release is the launch of the Night Package for the SUV range. For an imposing, Murdered Out motif, the mirrors, bumpers, and fender flares are finished in Obsidian Metallic.
Because designo models are made to order, it will take some time until we see one in our listings, but rest assured that once we do, you will see it in detail on Autofluence. Tell us how you would order yours below.
