Strong Stories

Two master artists.

The artist Ben Daye, turned the 300,000 G-Class into a work of art with his unique spraying style. The result: the terrain through which it normally drives appears to show through the paints finish.

First fashion, then style.

Ben Daye started in Manchester, spraying footwear in various designs. This turned conventional shoes into design objects, and he soon attracted public interest. 'The objects I designed became larger and larger, and in 2015 a friend asked me whether I would like to spray-paint his G 63.' Ben Daye agreed at once, and gave the off-roader his utmost. With spectacular success: 'The photos went around the world. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook – the design work attracted massive attention and comments everywhere. Ben Daye succeeded in turning an icon into a one-off work of art.

AMG G 63: fuel consumption combined: 13,8 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 322 g/km.*

G 500: Fuel consumption combined: 12.3 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 289 g/km.*

G 500: Fuel consumption combined: 12.3 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 289 g/km.*

From a fan to a designer.

Actually the G-Class itself ensures that it constantly appears before us in a different look – when it has donned a distinctive outfit of dust and mud after an off-road tour. Ben Daye anticipated this, and gave the G-Class an individual design. It was something dear to his heart. 'I have always adored the G-Class. I used to be a great fan of rap music, and one of my idols drove a G-Class.' Since then he has had an obsession for the off-roader. He particularly loves its 'ascetic, timeless appearance'.
