Mercedes-Benz and luxury menswear brand Spencer Hart have collaborated with one another to create a special edition CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake that aims to showcase the AMG Performance Studio’s bespoke optioning program. The lux CLS63 AMG, designed by Nick Hart,, Spencer Hart’s creative director, was unveiled at the end of the Spencer Hart London Collections men show.
The Hart CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake is the first UK fashion collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and will be available to order in the near future. Pricing for the special edition “Nick Hart Midnight Blue” Benz has yet to be announced but with a base price of $95,900 for the 2013 CLS63 AMG, we recommend you start saving now. Nick Hart has also replaced the traditional Mercedes-Benz chrome accents and wheels with subtle, dark finishes that give an understated feel to the car.
On the inside, Spencer Hart drew inspiration from its flagship store in Brooke Street, particularly the walnut paneled personal shopping area, dubbed “The Vault”. The AMG Shooting Brake interior is fitted with dark Chocolate Brown Italian leather seats with contrasting Midnight Blue stitching and the Spencer Hart logo on each headrest and Nick Hart’s signature on the center console.
According to Nick Hart, “It seemed a natural fit to work on a car project with Mercedes-Benz. I have always been a fan of the brand and creating something that was uniquely Spencer Hart and ultimately cool as opposed to commercial, has resulted in something that both Spencer Hart and Mercedes-Benz are proud of”. Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO, Mercedes-Benz UK stated that “Our AMG Performance Studio can create cars as unique as their owners, which is why we decided to show what can be achieved through this collaboration with Spencer Hart”.
