The ultra luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been revealed at both Auto Guangzhou, China and at the LA Auto Show. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been dubbed the 'world's quietest production sedan car' thanks to special seals and sound deadening material, which optimise noise insulation.
Mercedes-Maybach is a sub-brand that brings exclusive appointments to Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Mercedes-Maybach vehicles are distinguished from standard production models by providing extra spaciousness and lavishly designed interiors for discerning customers.
Mercedes-Maybach S-Class ModelsModels in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class range include the range-topping S 600 which, is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine that offers 390 kW of power and 830 Nm of torque. The S 600 makes use of a 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission.
There will also be a S 500 model on offer, powered by a 4.7-litre bi-turbo V8 engine with 335 kW and 700 Nm on tap. This model is fitted with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
Exclusive FeaturesThe Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is 5 453 mm long with a wheel base of 3 365 mm, which is 20 cm longer in both dimensions compared to the standard S-Class long wheelbase version. Compared to the standard S-Class, the rear door has been shortened by 66mm and the triangular window in the door has moved to the C-pillar. Chrome surrounds the windows and the B-pillar while the Maybach Manufaktur logo can be found on both sides of the C-pillar.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class rides on exclusive 20-inch forged light-alloy wheels with large surfaces instead of spokes. Up front, three double chrome louvres differentiate the model from the standard S-Class along with vertical chrome trim. The same theme is carried over to the rear.
The luxury continues inside with a mix of wood, leather and chrome trim with the armrests featuring nappa leather with embossed Maybach crests. The dashboard features a special analogue clock with IWC design with the numbers and indicators crafted from fine metal. Hand-stitched door trim in nappa leather further adds to the car's interior appeal.
Sound in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is provided by sound specialists Burmester with two options available including the Burmester surround sound system and the high-end 3-D surround sound system connected to ten loudspeakers and Frontbass system.
