Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet Revealed

2017 Mercedes Maybach S650 Cabriolet2



The ultra-luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet has been revealed at the LA Motor Show!

Luxury drop-top motoring doesn’t get much better than this Mercedes-Maybach S650, which has been revealed at the LA Motor Show this week. The recently-launched Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet is certainly an impressive and expensive luxury cabriolet, but this Mercedes-Maybach S650 is set to push the opulence limits just a little bit further.

The Mercedes-Maybach S650 is based on the S65 Cabriolet but is differentiated by a number of bespoke details. You may notice that the body gains additional chrome details as well as a redesigned front bumper. Maybach emblems are found on the fenders while the S650 rides on forged 20-inch wheels. 

A Maybach logo is projected onto the floor when opening the doors and once inside, you are met with a plush cabin adorned in the finest materials. Leather dominates the cabin and the perforated leather seats feature outer diamond quilting on the side bolsters. Bespoke trim is also seen on the door panels and instrument panel while deep-pile floor mats add yet another luxurious touch. The interior design is said to create a yacht ambiance, inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Style "Arrow 460-Granturismo" yacht. Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet customers will also receive an exclusive Maybach - Icons of Luxury travel bag set made from the same leather found in the S650. 

Engine power

The S650 Cabriolet is powered by the same 6.0-litre biturbo V12 engine found in the S65 AMG with 463 kW and 1 000 Nm of torque on offer. These numbers will allow the S650 to accelerate from zero to 100 kph in 4 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 kph.  The rear wheels are driven through a 7-speed automatic transmission. 

As revealed by the interior photographs, only 300 Mercedes-Maybach S650 cabriolets will see the light of day.
