Mercedes-Benz has expanded its Designo Manufaktur program to give customers more customization options when they design their ideal Mercedes.
As part of the expanded program, customers can spec out their vehicles in any color from the Mercedes-Benz history books, regardless of whether that color was recently retired or if it was used on classic models from the 1950s or 1960s.
The Mercedes-AMG S 63 Cabriolet and E 63 S Wagon you see here are finished in Designo Manufaktur Deep Green and Design Manufaktur Steel Blue respectively. This shade of green comes from the company’s heritage portfolio, while the blue was once reserved for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter but actually suits the E 63 to a tee.
Just in case customers can’t find their perfect color from the Mercedes-Benz palette, they can also request to have a paint color used by another car manufacturer.
The German automaker has also expanded the program into the cabins of its vehicles. For example, customers can option retired Mercedes-Benz Designo leather colors, headliners, and contrast stitching. This S 63 Cabriolet is bathed in lovely Light Brown Exclusive Nappa leather and Maybach models can have virtually every interior surface finished in leather. Meanwhile, the E 63 S Wagon featured has AMG Black Exclusive Nappa leather with white contrast stitching to suit its understated exterior looks.
Mercedes-Benz has also expanded the portfolio of customization options for the G-Class through the Designo G Manufaktur program, with the SUV now available with 34 exterior colors and 54 interior upholsteries.
