Abflug’s premium brand, the “GALLANT ABFLUG”, selected Mercedes-Benz as their primary OEM brand to tune in 2013. The Mercedes SL-Class is the first model of the “Platinum Series” developed as the flagship of the GALLANT ABFLUG line.

Abflug specializes in unique and original designs that are not beholden to the lineage of Mercedes. There was no preconceived notion of using Mercedes design themes as the base. The result is a completely unique look.

The concept was based purely on the unique sensitivity to form that says “There should be a car like this.”

This is meant as an extreme car. The concept is “ALL or NOTHING.”

Insisting on the thought that “It’s meaningless to go half way” Abflug resolves to build “the car that makes your heart race, simply by existing.”
