Mercedes-Maybach stands for the ultimate in exclusivity and individuality. The luxury brand combines the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach. Now the top model from Mercedes-Benz is even more refined. A new radiator grille, optional two-tone paintwork and new exclusive colour combinations in the interior ensure an even more majestic look. The world premiere is at the Geneva Motor Show (6.–18.3.2018).
A reinterpretation of the Mercedes- Maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. It celebrated its world premiere in the vision Mercedes Maybach 6, the exclusive coupé study which thrilled connoisseurs and fans of the brand in 2016.
The two-tone exterior paint finish is also a classic Mercedes-Maybach theme. In future there will be nine different colour combinations available on request. The double clear coat is available as a further new option for all dark colours. It creates a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect and a special impression of depth. The second bodywork clear coat, including inter- mediate sanding, is intricately applied by hand in the Maybach Manufactured by specially trained varnishers.
The exterior look of the top model is rounded off by a new luxury 20 inch multi-spoke wheel. There are also three exclusive 20 inch wheels to choose from for the Mercedes-Maybach, including the wheel with a 20 hole design familiar from the Mercedes-Maybach S Cabriolet. Two new exclusive colour combinations are offered in the interior: Armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black.
The black Maybach Exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be ordered with a choice of copper-, gold or platinum-colored contrasting topstitching. Also new in the range are trim inserts in design flowing lines Magnolia.
With a length of 5,462 mm and a wheelbase of 3,365 mm, the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz model range exceeds the long-wheelbase S Class Saloon by 20 cm in both dimensions. Rear passengers benefit from this increased size, as well as from standard equipment that includes Executive seats on both left and right and other exclusive details such as innovative voice amplification. The huge success of the Mercedes-Maybach speaks volumes: since the market launch of the Maybach in February 2015 over 25,000 Mercedes- Maybach S Class models have already been delivered to customers. In 2017, too, more than 1 in 10 S Class models sold was a Mercedes-Maybach.
