Eurocopter EC145 by Mercedes-Benz Style - Click above for high-res image gallery

To many people around the world, Mercedes-Benz and its silver star of glory represents the epitome of luxury and style. Want to be chauffeured around in a limousine? An S-Class or a Maybach is what the doctor ordered. Need a bit more space? A luxed-out Sprinter van is at your service. But if you're looking to soar above the skyline and take that Benz luxury with you, the German automaker's design studio has partnered with Eurocopter for this unique whirly-bird.

Unveiled at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibit in Geneva, this EC145 - a favorite for luxury travel as it is for medevac teams and a myriad other applications - has had its cabin outfitted by the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio on Italy's Lake Como. There, design chief Gorden Wagener oversaw the fitment of the chopper's cabin with all the usual Benz touches, from ambient lighting to wood trim. The cabin has also been arranged in a flexible layout, with seats that can be moved around on rails to seat up to eight passengers or removed to offer extra space for the privileged few.

The project is the first initiative of Mercedes-Benz Style, the automaker's new product-design division, who we expect will be rolling out a number of licensed designs over the course of the coming years. Follow the jump for the full press release, and check out the high-resolution images in our gallery.Continue reading Mercedes-Benz outfits a luxury Eurocopter
