Well aged
Vilner Mercedes-Benz GL


As we mellow into our older years we find ourselves becoming a lit tle more choosy.

In our youth we have previously sampled cheap and set tled for less more than one should. So in maturity we demand things to be finer.

Our choice in automobiles is no dif ferent. While the exterior of a car is beautiful it is the interior we spend all of our time. Why then do we set tle for factory interiors when, with a lit tle guidance, the finest materials could make our drive much more pleasant.

The next challenge for the Vilner-Your Style Inside team appeared with an owner of a Mercedes GL. It is not for nothing that in the new version of GL, the Mercedes engineering team relied on a higher sound and vibro-isolated interior, as well as on slightly increasing the size of this luxurious SUV. But even af ter these changes, the new GL remained a 7-seater…

The customer was looking for an individual engagement in his Mercedes, for luxurious recreation according to his wishes and visions. His wish was a 4-seater oasis, where one doesn’t feel the road, immersed in a world filled with high-quality music, relaxing and not feeling the space ... Of course the iPad should not be missing. Where one can carry the entire luggage needed to get to the moon and back.

Vilner worked up the bot tom of the chassis, exchanging the rear two seats with two front GL thrones, which still fulfill all functions of the front seats.

Luxury must grow, and not decrease! An additional center console was installed - an extension of the front console. On that console an aluminum pillar was integrated, designed for the iPad, which can rotate in all directions.

The headliner was made of light-brown Alcantara, the plastic parts were painted white and now these come together with the headliner. The emphasis shif ted to the relief color pat tern, borrowed from the interior of Bugat ti Veyron.

This color pat tern can be seen on the car door inner sides, and in addition to the esthetic function it is also soundproofed. The whole cab was covered with soundproof material from Ground Zero.

For a bet ter comfort of the occupants, Vilner sof tened additionally the rear part of the front seats. An ambient lighting was installed.

All that remains is to enjoy the sound of silence … or the sound of the powerful new audio system. It was installed in the trunk and precisely adjusted for the rear two occupants. They will feel the whole power of the 4-volume audio system, two subwoofers, three amplifiers, (two 4-channel and 1 mono-block), audio processor Audison, 31-band equalizer TSP. All controlled by the iPad.

And do not forget: the seats for the 5-star GL are only four - or one in most cases!

There are many advertisers in Auto Trader who can help turn your interior into a work of art.
