Eight games into his NHL career, Evgeny Kuznetsov is settling in. And by “settling in,” I mean living a life of luxury none of us will ever attain. First he got himself an apartment. Now he’s got himself a brand new car. The ride: a customized 2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG, with a base price of $140,000. It’s got 577 horsepower. That’s a lot.

Kuzya will probably spend most of his time sitting still on 66, but if you’re going to buy a mobile lounge, the new S-Class is pure and total luxury.

Kuznetsov had the car modified by Designo Motoring, the folks behind Ovi’s matte blue Benz. This is the same car Ovi and Kuz used for the weirdly inverted sing-off video that Ovechkin posed on Instagram.

The new S-Class came out just a few months ago. Kuzya bought the top-of-line version, with a massive hand-built V8 engine. If speed isn’t your thing, you can spec one with night vision — like, actual night vision. Full reclining “hot stone massage” seats are also available as well as WiFi, long-range radar, and a “fragrance atomizer,” whatever that is.

I’d say it’s not a bad time to be Evgeny.

    Can he even drive in Washington with a Russian drivers license? If not, where are the pics of him at the DMV waiting 3 hours in line to book his test???

  • Evgeni James Goldlust

    Is this where RMNB readers start to come up with suggestions for vanity plates? Kuzya92, BestCap, Savi0r, NyetCup, Wait4Me

  • OlietheGoalie

    Ok, who is driving the Jetta?

  • H70

    I’m guessing he doesn’t use a flip phone.

  • H70

    And the Escape…? An all team comparison would be fun.

  • donatelife

    you have a grace period to use your international license…..the po-po only care about insurance.

    I used to work for Hershey on these things.

  • Good taste, minus all the “enhancements”.

  • Kyle Pollock

    It’s not a private parking lot guys… anyone can park there.

  • BusterChris

    I think the escape is big John’s and the “fragrance atomizer” Is fancy for fart masker

  • Rasha

    i’m guessing he is not going to put plates on the front…

  • Diller M

    the fragrence atomizer makes your car smell nice. Like “downtown” “sport” “unshorn scrotum” and such http://autos.jdpower.com/content/new-car-preview/LcSRbp3/2014-mercedes-benz-s-class-preview.htm

    To be fair, this was bought with that KHL $$$.

    Otherwise, I am pretty sure most rookies on ELCs aren’t splurging on such cars. Obviously they’re not driving Civics (while some are), but probably a nice BMW 5 series or something else in that $50-60k range.

  • Brackaphobia

    Kuzya *would* drive a car that looks like a Storm Trooper.

  • yv

    And who is Kuyza?!

  • Joe

    I wonder if he will do a quarter mile with Bryce Harper’s Benz…

  • Myan

    Do you mean to tell me it can keep your car smelling like “new car smell” forever?! :O

  • factoryofsadness

    meh. With that kind of money, gimme an Alfa Romeo.

  • FLAMES007

    They should of kept the radar glossy black instead of painting it matte black, I get why on paper it sounds like a good idea, but in practice it looks stupid.

  • Smiley456

    But…on the video isn’t Kuzya driving and the steering wheel on the right hand side? Confused…..

  • Cops don’t give a crap about that law anyway.

  • It’s kinda sorta ruined.

  • The video is reversed.

  • Miata.

  • It’s glossy. Hard to tell from the photos. The radar pucks look kind of weird on the S-Classes.

  • Harjot Singh

    He is following in Ovis footsteps with the Merc! tbh Kuzya seemed like a range rover type of guy. I think Carly drives a Rover.

  • Harjot Singh

    Virginia, D.C, and Maryland require front plates.

  • Owen Johnson

    I’m not even a car guy. I’m jealous.

  • Could be worse. At least it’s not too terribly hideous, surely you wouldn’t find anything that clean sitting in the players lots at NFL stadia around the country.

  • sheena dunn

    Probably still has 30 tags. I did last time I saw it

  • Freedoooom

    The radar is on the center of the grille. Its normally matte black.

    What you are thinking of is the ultrasonic sensors, which for some reason people like to confuse with radar.

  • Haven’t had front plates on my cars since I moved here 14 years ago.

    No problems yet.

  • factoryofsadness

    the new alfa spider coming out – best of both worlds!

  • Jonah

    he needs it to put on the face of someone doing “late night filings”
