Mercedes-AMG is once again teaming up with Palace, a British skateboard and streetwear brand, for the creation of no less than 4 presentation cars. Together, the brands will also launch a clothing line which will be on sale at the brand’s four flagship stores in London, Los Angeles, New York and Tokyo.
The four art cars are based on the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S, GT 63 4MATIC+, SL 63 4MATIC+ and G 63. All feature unique paint schemes designed by Palace’s Lev Tanju and his team and pay homage to the four metropolises. where the brand’s flagship stores are located.
AMG’s art cars feature a seven-layer faded paint finish that gives the vehicles a color-shifting effect and all are covered in AMG and Palace logos. The interiors were also changed with special seat upholstery colors to make them more in line with the aesthetics of the exteriors. All models were painted and customized at the AMG Performance studio in Affalterbach.

The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S Palace Edition/”Tiger London” features bold multi-colour paintwork and a large white tiger head painted on the bonnet. The sides, meanwhile, feature large AMG badging and pay homage to the vibrant and diverse UK custom car scene of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
The SL 63 4MATIC+ PALACE Edition/”Sunset LA” has a paintwork that shimmers between bright yellow and deep red. The 2+2 roadster is designed to represent the eternal Californian summer.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ Palace Edition/”Neon Fade New York” also has a shimmering paint scheme that transitions from black to what Mercedes calls neon yellow but looks like green to me. Either way, the painting depicts both sides of the city that never sleeps by contrasting the rough sidewalks in some areas and the bright lights in others.
Finally, the G 63 Palace Edition/”Space Horse Tokyo” features a galloping horse in space on the side and pays homage to popular fantasy culture in Japan.
