If you want to make your hot wheels hotter, you need to take your ride to the gang at Vilner. Since 1996, the Bulgarian custom shop/art studio has been crafting dream machines for fastidious owners around the world.
Case in point, the company’s latest project: formally just another stock 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG.
The owner of the top shelf, $160,000-plus S-Class wanted something more than the paltry Designo interior options offered by Mercedes, so he turned to the experts at Vilner for help.
The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, received the full treatment and the car’s interior received a complete makeover. Vilner refers to him as “The King.”
It seems His Highness wanted more Maybach and less Mercedes for the look and feel of his 585-horsepower black beauty.
Now, the royal driver and his subjects are smothered in a cocoon of jet black Alcantara and quilted leather with white stitching. Vilner’s stitching weaves a fine, silky web throughout the entire cabin including the swanky S63’s floor mats and even inside the transformed trunk. The project took 25 days to complete and the cost we are told via email is confidential.
It looks so good, we’d never let anyone eat, smoke, or even wear shoes while riding in it — ever. The steering wheel, rear view mirror, and basically anything you might touch are wrapped in Alcantara. No bare plastic bits have been left behind here. Also, all the wood trim is now finished in Piano Gloss Black.
“The result is a black kingdom of luxury, in the exact state that ‘The King’ wanted to be,” Vilner informs us on its website.
It’s good to be the king.
