Proyecto MAYBACH con Virgil Abloh: una instalación en homenaje a un socio y colaborador visionario y de confianza.

Proyecto MAYBACH con Virgil Abloh: una instalación en homenaje a un socio y colaborador visionario y de confianza.

Siguiendo los deseos de la familia de Virgil, Mercedes-Benz tiene el honor de presentar el Proyecto MAYBACH: un automóvil de exhibición eléctrico colaborativo diseñado para inspirar a la próxima generación y cuestionar para siempre el status quo.

Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach und Virgl Abloh 2021 // Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh, 2021

Miami / Stuttgart. El 1 de diciembre de 2021, en lugar de un evento de prensa íntimo, Mercedes-Benz rinde homenaje a Virgil Abloh abriendo las puertas del Museo Rubell para exhibir el Proyecto MAYBACH al público entre el 1 de diciembre y el 2 de diciembre, con acceso ofrecido exclusivamente a estudiantes de escuelas de diseño locales de 11:30 a. m. a 12:30 p. m. el 1 de diciembre. Una humilde contribución al vasto legado de Virgil, el auto de exhibición Mercedes-Maybach ejemplifica las posibilidades del diseño futuro y es el resultado de una cooperación continua con el artista erudito, arquitecto, director creativo, diseñador de moda y filántropo; impulsado por una pasión compartida para enriquecer la conversación sobre el diseño de lujo.

“Mercedes-Benz está devastada al enterarse del fallecimiento de Virgil Abloh. Nuestros más sinceros pensamientos están con la familia y los equipos de Virgil. Ahora, abriendo el mundo de nuestra colaboración y la visión única de Virgil al público, queremos celebrar con respeto el trabajo de un talento de diseño verdaderamente único, que creó infinitas posibilidades de colaboración a través de su imaginación desenfrenada e inspiró a todos los que conocieron su trabajo “. Mercedes-Benz AG.

Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach und Virgl Abloh 2021 // Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh, 2021

Presentamos el Proyecto MAYBACH

Un diseño diferente a todo lo que ha sido desarrollado por Mercedes-Benz, cada elemento del Proyecto MAYBACH se ha construido desde cero. Abloh, en colaboración con Gorden Wagener, ha interpretado la identidad de lujo de Mercedes-Maybach con un nuevo lenguaje de diseño y ha superado los límites de la función, el estilo y la creatividad colaborativa. Inspirado en el aire libre y recontextualizando una marca tradicionalmente urbana dentro de un entorno claramente todoterreno, el coupé todoterreno eléctrico de batería de 2 plazas combina enormes proporciones de Gran Turismo, grandes ruedas todoterreno y accesorios distintivos.

Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach und Virgl Abloh 2021 // Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh, 2021

La clave tanto para Abloh como para Wagener fue una visión responsable del diseño futuro. La total libertad creativa, libre de los requisitos de producción, permitió a los equipos de diseño conceptualizar cómo podría ser el futuro de los viajes eléctricos. Bajo la superficie transparente del capó delantero de los autos de exhibición, por ejemplo, hay células solares que aumentan el alcance imaginado del Proyecto MAYBACH.

Sin miedo a provocar una conversación a través de un diseño provocativo, Project MAYBACH canaliza la pasión de Abloh para desafiar el status quo y reescribir el libro de reglas del diseño aspiracional. La naturaleza de X-Factor del Proyecto MAYBACH resulta no solo de su impresionante tamaño – casi seis metros de largo – y características, sino sobre todo de sus singulares contrastes; más notablemente a través de cómo los elementos de diseño Mercedes-Maybach naturalmente auténticos se combinan armoniosamente con un nuevo motivo de diseño Outdoor Adventure.

Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach und Virgl Abloh 2021 // Project MAYBACH, Mercedes-Maybach and Virgil Abloh, 2021

El poder del trabajo de Abloh no proviene solo del diseño del producto, sino también de las conversaciones exploratorias que su trabajo encendió. Si bien el automóvil de exhibición del Proyecto MAYBACH se inspiró en cómo se podía explorar la naturaleza en un contexto de lujo único con Maybach, los equipos de Mercedes-Benz agradecen a Virgil Abloh la inspiración para explorar todos los días el poder del diálogo entre industrias para imaginar un mejor, más futuro inclusivo.

The virtual Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is the star of the new Forza Horizon 5 video game

The virtual Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is the star of the new Forza Horizon 5 video game

Close cooperation between Mercedes-AMG and Microsoft for a hyper-realistic driving experience with the hypercar in the highly anticipated, open-world driving game Forza Horizon 5.

At the all-digital gamescom 2021 (August 25th until 27th), Microsoft’s Xbox Game Studios showcased all-new Forza Horizon 5 gameplay with the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE “Forza Horizon Edition” as the star. My friend, an expert on make money online games, said that the virtual counterpart of the hypercar with Formula 1 drive technology delights with a level of detail and the currently highest fidelity in the digital world. Players are immersed in a hyper-real open world in which the landscape of Mexico is recreated. The special experience of driving the ultimate top model from Affalterbach is also amazingly realistic. Virtual acceleration, braking, steering and agility as well as active aerodynamics correspond to the features of the future road model. And that’s not the end of the gaming fun: further top-class performance vehicles from Mercedes-AMG are ready for almost unlimited adventures in Forza Horizon 5.

Close cooperation between Mercedes-AMG and Microsoft’s Forza team makes the hyper-realistic representation of the unique Mercedes-AMG Project ONE “Forza Horizon Edition” possible. This game version was given an exclusive body livery that emphasises its unique character and makes it clear that this car will not be available for purchase in the real world. In addition to the “Forza Horizon Edition,” the AMG hypercar can, of course, also be configured in other equipment and colours.

The special features of the unique two-door car are also depicted very realistically in the game. With the different “Track” and “Road” driving programmes, dusty tracks in Mexico can be mastered just as dynamically as asphalt tracks. The active aerodynamics of the hypercar are also meticulously recreated. The gaming community can look forward to breath-taking driving performance, more than 1,000 hp of power and a digital top speed of over 350 km/h.

“The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is strictly limited to 275 units in the real world. We’re delighted that there’s now a perfect digital variant exclusively in Forza Horizon 5. Thanks to our close cooperation with Microsoft, we can now virtually offer the unique driving experience of our hypercar to a large group of enthusiasts in the best and most impressive way currently available on the gaming scene,” said Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

“We are honoured to continue our long-term relationship with Mercedes-AMG to feature the highly sought-after Mercedes-AMG Project ONE in Forza Horizon 5,” said Alan Hartman, VP of Forza Racing Franchise, Xbox Game Studios. “We have featured Mercedes-AMG vehicles in every Forza game, however, this is the first time we’ve partnered to feature a Mercedes-AMG vehicle on the cover of a Forza game. I cannot imagine a more exciting car to start with than the amazing Mercedes-AMG Project ONE.”

Forza Horizon 5, the follow-up to 2018’s breakout hit, the open-world Forza Horizon 4 driving, takes the Horizon Festival to the very realistic and vibrant presented Mexico. Featuring the largest, most diverse open world ever in a Forza Horizon game, Forza Horizon 5 is set against a vibrant, ever-evolving landscape with nearly limitless driving action across living deserts, lush jungles, historic cities, hidden ruins, pristine beaches, vast canyons and a towering snow-capped volcano – the highest point ever in a Horizon game. The game will be available globally on November 9 for the current consoles of the Xbox family including Windows PC.

The close ties between Mercedes-AMG and Microsoft’s Forza team will result in further activities in the upcoming weeks and months until game release, with the next appearance scheduled for the IAA MOBILITY this September in Munich, Germany.

Rafael De Cárdenas recreated several different rooms, each one with its own classic touch. One of the three contemporary dining rooms has a special Portuguese reference completing the whole ambiance with the perfect piece of art, D. Manuel I Cabinet from Boca do Lobo’s Limited-Edition Collection.

Designed by Rafael De Cárdenas, the modern dining room is filled with luxury furniture pieces: a gigantic cream marble contemporary dining table and large upholstery modern chairs which gives the possibility to the room, to be more than a dining space. It can perfectly be a place to have an informal meeting with the closest professionals or business partners.

Right beside the entrance door, D. Manuel Cabinet was chosen strategically by Rafael De Cárdenas to expand the space and cut the contemporary design of the rest of the pieces. The cabinet surface has a copper leaf finish, with a sophisticated black lacquer gradient applied on the outside. Its legs are made from solid mahogany and are crafted to a traditional and handmade form, finished in high gloss black lacquer.

Manueline Style was an inspiration for Rafael De Cárdenas due to the sumptuous and composite Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation, incorporating maritime elements and representations of the discoveries brought from the voyages of Vasco da Gama and Pedro Álvares Cabral, two of the most renamed discoverers in Portugal history.

The two different concepts of the VAIARO project with the names “Floating Platform” and “Passage”

The two different concepts of the VAIARO project with the names “Floating Platform” and “Passage”

VAIARO

The two different concepts of the VAIARO project with the names “Floating Platform” and “Passage”

In 2019, Master´s students of industrial design at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design (Simeon Ortmüller, Tobias Gehrke, Vincent Steinhart-Besser, Yigang Shen and Jingyue Chen) developed design concepts for a new form of mobility on water and gave the CAPTN project its first visible identity.

The students have dealt with the question: What is the future of public transport on the Kiel Fjord? Kiel grows and urban mobility needs attractive offers to make it easier to avoid the car and to achieve ambitious climate targets.

The fact that ferry traffic in this context connects the west and east bank over a longer period of time during the day and at a tighter frequency and that the connections to bus traffic play a central role is obvious.

The two different concepts of the VAIARO project with the names “Floating Platform” and “Passage” are characterized by pragmatism and radicalism in equal measure. For this purpose, leitmotifs for intelligent mobility and a new landmark in Kiel were developed. The project was designed as a cooperation from the beginning: Partners from Kiel University and from the University of Applied Sciences are working in their respective fields on the realization of an autonomous ferry.

The parties involved were thus present at regular intervals for presentations, in the course of which the drafts and their own position were repeatedly reviewed and adjusted. In this way, indications of the desired qualities could be obtained. What is meant to be in the drafts is basically quite simple to grasp: When I come to Kiel, I absolutely have to take the new ferry!

MARC PHILIPP GEMBALLA – Project Sandbox Coupe

MARC PHILIPP GEMBALLA – Project Sandbox Coupe

A NEW ERA BEGINS.

Marc Philipp Gemballa GmbH

BORN AND RAISED IN A 911

With the new founded company MARC PHILIPP GEMBALLA GmbH (MPG), the 26-year-old son of world-famous Porsche specialist Uwe Gemballa is launching his very first own project in 2020, starting a new era exactly ten years after his father’s passing. Born and raised in a sports car-enthusiastic family always being part of by his father’s doings, Marc has studied management at Germany’s oldest business school EBS University near Frankfurt am Main and has gained automotive expertise working for various sports car manufacturers including Aston Martin, Mercedes, and Porsche.

TIME FOR A CHANGE

Growing up in an environment where building the fastest and most powerful production car on the planet and setting the next world record on the Nürburgring was key, now ten years down the road, the market has changed. The horsepower game is over, tuning is done by the OEMS themselves and there is a glut of new upcoming supercars with hyped-up horsepower figures that are being thrown onto the market. Marc realized when aiming to build a successful company for the next decades and not just creating a next ‘me too’ product for the market, it really comes down to offer something special to the client.

THE VISION

MPG sees a new market opportunity arising in creating special products in the high luxury segment, inspired by the core of his father’s success in creating holistic masterpieces, combined with a new fresh design and technology focused approach, leaving the era of tuning behind, and ultimately achieving a USP position in the market.

More than two years of preparation and development have resulted in the idea of equipping unique people for their adventure, no matter where in the world, no matter what the terrain, no matter what the climate or road conditions. MPG is taking the extreme from on-road to off-road, building his very first super car combined with off-road capabilities in a limited small series run.

Marc Philipp Gemballa GmbH is not associated in any form with Gemballa GmbH, and any of its subsidiaries, and/or its trademarks.

SUPPORTED BY PARTNERS

 

REVIVING A LEGENDARY PARTNERSHIP

Marc Philipp Gemballa announces engine collaboration with Porsche specialist RUF Automobile for his new project

  • Engine development of the new Porsche 959-inspired supercar by Marc Philipp Gemballa will be carried out by Porsche engine specialist and vehicle manufacturer RUF Automobile GmbH
  • Going back to their roots, Uwe Gemballa and Alois Ruf worked successfully together in the 1980s in producing the powertrains
  • The RUF engine upgrade – today just as back then under the name ‘Powered by RUF’, enables the six-cylinder boxer engine (based on the 992 Turbo S series) to delivering over 750 hp and 930 Nm of torque
  • The limited launch edition series of the first ten vehicles of the offroad capable supercar (based on the all-new 992 Turbo S) have already been sold before the offcial market launch in Spring 2021

Two iconic families from the exclusive Porsche scene are teaming up for another collaboration. Just as Uwe Gemballa successfully partnered with Porsche specialist Alois Ruf for the engine development of his exclusive vehicles back in the 1980s, the two families return to make history together again.

This story is now being revived by Uwe’s son, Marc Philipp Gemballa. The engine development of the o”-road capable sportscar designed by MARC PHILIPP GEMBALLA GmbH (not associated in any form with Gemballa GmbH) is being carried out by the since 1981 registered vehicle manufacturer RUF Automobile GmbH – now, just as back then, under the name ‘Powered by RUF’.

“We enjoy working with my father’s trusted business partners. Many of them rank among today’s leading suppliers in the automotive industry, and in addition to their decades of experience, they know the standards we strive for and perfectly understand what matters. My father trusted the technical expertise as well as the highquality standards and the well-proven working methods of Alois Ruf. Consequently, the choice to partner with RUF Automobile for the engine development was a natural decision for us. I am pleased that we can continue this very special friendship and partnership”.

Just as RUF had developed the powertrains of several legendary models from Uwe Gemballa in the 1980s, the Pfaffenhausen-based manufacturer is now also taking over the engine development of Marc Philipp’s new model. Alois Ruf, Managing Director of RUF Automobile GmbH, is pleased that this success story is being revived with the project by Marc Philipp Gemballa, and remembers:

“With the vehicles of Uwe Gemballa, I associate the courageous, radical, and uncompromising expression of driving pleasure. I look forward to working with his son Marc Philipp”.

The collaboration kicks off with the young entrepreneur’s first project – an off-road supercar inspired by the legendary Porsche 959 ‘Paris-Dakar’ – currently still camouflaged under the name ‘Project Sandbox’ – which is based on the all-new Porsche 911 Turbo S from the 992 series. The engine upgrade under the name ‘Powered by RUF’ enables the six-cylinder boxer engine to deliver over 750 hp and 930 Nm of torque. “Despite the enormous power reserves, the engine complies with the latest EURO 6 emissions regulations and has been subject to the strictest WLTP and RDE tests,” explains Moritz Renner, technical director of MARC PHILIPP GEMBALLA GmbH (MPG). The world premiere of the project is scheduled for Spring 2021, and the demand is already very high.

The exclusive launch edition, limited to only ten units, has sold out even before the official launch, leaving only 30 out of the original 40 units available while the company is preparing for the start of serial production later this year.

Besides being offered in ‘Project Sandbox’, the power upgrade to over 750 hp, developed by RUF, can also be offered for every conventional Porsche 992 Turbo (or Turbo S).

 

Technical Specifications

Base vehicle: Porsche 911 Turbo S (992 series)
Engine: 6-cylinder twin-turbocharged flat-six
Power (kW): 552 kW (Series: 478 kW)
Power (hp): 750+ hp (Series: 650 hp)
Max. torque: 930 Nm torque (Series: 800 Nm torque)

Further information and more technical details about the vehicle will be released in the upcoming weeks leading up to the project‘s o•cial market launch.
