Mike Shinoda, the co-lead vocalist of the multi-platinum winning rock band Linkin Park just concluded his solo tour called the Mike Shinoda Post Traumatic Tour in China, presenting his personal songs from the upcoming Post Traumatic album as well as hits from previous albums.
Since Mercedes-Benz was the title sponsor for the tour, the brand gave the singer, who is well known for his artistic talents, an opportunity to design a G-Class for the show.
As expected, Mike seized the opportunity and came up with a cool matte grey vector art concept, which Mercedes-Benz wrapped around a silver G-Class.
Although the artwork is barely noticeable from a distance, close up photos which were shared by Mike Shinoda on his official Facebook fan page show how detailed and unique the custom wrap is.
“Mercedes Benz China asked me if I wanted to design a G Class for the show, and I couldn’t say no. I did this custom wrap in ink on paper, created the vector art myself, and their team implemented it - Matte grey on a silver G-Wagon,” said Mike Shinoda in his Facebook post.
This is not the first time Mike and Mercedes-Benz are partnering as Linkin Park has been working together with Mercedes-AMG since 2014.
The band, which will be developing engine sounds for future Mercedes-Benz electric vehicles, performed at a concert last year at the Mercedes-Benz arena in Berlin to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary, designed a one-off Mercedes-AMG GT3 for the 2016 Spa 24 Hours race, and also provided their song ‘Papercut’ for the global debut of AMG’s GT R at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
