Daimler had raised the prestige brand Maybach in 2002, before burying it again in 2013. However, it is still a kind of renaissance that we are witnessing. Indeed Mercedes presents this year in Los Angeles a S600 Version "Maybach" of its sedan lux.
But it's not the brand that is reborn only the name. Must be considered in reality this new name as a new "finish" great luxury applied to the S-Class
Mercedes already explained to us the release of its latest S they wanted to compete with Rolls-Royce, and therefore, she went on a little concept of Maybach.
This is even more the case with this "super S-Class." Twenty centimeters longer than the longest S-Class, so it rises to 5.44 m! Enough to take his ease at the back, where we discover two seats "Executive" that can lie completely or almost in the manner of classes case by plane. There also also screens and tablets, heating function, massage, fridge, brief, total.
The level of overall finish is still a notch above the "normal" S-Class, which had already set the bar very high. Stitched leather, crafted almost wholes where hands may arise keys aluminum and wood. We are not yet at Rolls, but Mercedes is still strong admittedly.
The equipment is bloated, basically everything that is optional on the S becomes standard here: connectivity, automation, Magic Body Control suspension, hi-fi system Burmeister, etc.
To move the ship, you are entitled to 6.0 V12 biturbo 530 hp and 830 Nm of torque. And it is even rumored that the S Maybach will be powered by the V12 version AMG (AMG 65) 630 hp, allowing it to swallow the 0 to 100 in 4.3 s ...
These are primarily the Chinese customers who have the honor of this version (it is also at this very moment presented at the show in Guangzhou China also) in February 2015, before Europe is served a little more later. The price was not disclosed, but know that the "normal" S-Class rises to € 185,000, it will be ... much more!
