In the most ‘infantile’ stroke of behavior we’ve seen yet from Mercedes, the carmaker drops an AMG-branded stroller that focuses on boutique materials and, more importantly, exclusivity.
If your child is 15-17 years too young to drive but plenty old enough for you to preen into a high-society lifestyle, Mercedes has the ideal gear for you.
Mercedes brought the AMG Pushchair GT Limited Edition into the world in late May, with help from German “kinderwagenwerk” boutique Hartan.
The stroller’s look revolves around a red-and-black AMG patterned hood. For comfort, it gets the same Dinamica (“ecological suede“) seat inlay as the rest of the AMG lineup. And it rolls on genuine AMG spokes.
To reiterate: Yes, this is a stroller.
The brands say the design’s “central element” is the jacquard sun canopy, with a pattern it calls “diamond.” Cock your head as if tipping your hat to a dilettante upon the Grande Jatte, and the red pips do take on a diamond shape.
To satisfy the owner’s preclusion that very few equals on the Earth’s surface rival them, Mercedes plans to make precisely 299 strollers. And it will add AMG badging on the push handle to guarantee exclusivity: “so-and-so of 299.”
Function-wise, Hartan adds lockable swivel wheels, a handbrake, and a magnetic five-point harness for your precious cargo. Parents can also swivel the seat.
An attachable utility bag gives parents storage options for their key fobs, phones, various baby accouterment, and whatever else the outing may demand.
The fit and finish involve a “black leather look” on the handle and, of course, a Mercedes logo in the center of the off-black spokes.
The Mercedes-AMG x Hartan AMG GT Limited Edition Pushchair folds down to a 27 x 23 x 12-inch rectangle for easy storage in the boot of your matching Mercedes AMG.
Sadly, Mercedes informed us this hot, limited item will not be available in the United States.
