Mercedes Maybach S-Class Price and Specs – Maybach as a brand is dead, but Mercedes-Benz has resurrected the badge as an über luxury nameplate for its extra-long S-Class that will be revealed almost simultaneously at the Los Angeles and Guangzhou auto shows.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class comes equipped with a voice amplification system, which makes it easier to communicate with the rear passengers from the front. The two microphones in the interior mirror are also used to pick up speech for the hands-free telephone system. These signals are then amplified depending on the amount of driving noise and continuously adjusted for the speaker’s volume and the ambient noise level.
Mercedes Maybach S-Class Price
As expected, owning a Maybach-badged Mercedes-Benz does not come cheap, with a €134,053.50 entry ticket in Germany for the S 500. Scheduled to arrive in European markets from February 2015, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models are available to order as of now.
Mercedes Maybach S-Class Specs
At 5,453 mm (214.7 in) long and with a wheelbase of 3,365 mm (132.5 in), Mercedes-Benz’ new flagship sedan is a big car – 200mm (7.9 in) larger in both dimensions than the existing long wheelbase S-Class.
As you’d expect from a car bearing the Maybach nameplate, all that extra length benefits the rear passengers who also get unique individual seats and other exclusive details ranging from the Maybach-branded perfume AGARWOOD to silver-plated, handcrafted champagne flutes and a voice amplification function that “much easier for occupants in the front to communicate with the rear passengers”. Not that you really need the last function as Mercedes says the Maybach S-Class is the world’s quietest production saloon.
Mercedes will launch the flagship limo in February 2015 in two models, the S500 powered by a 449hp(445PS) and 700Nm 4.7-liter bi-turbo V8 that returns a respectable 8.9 lt/100 km (26.4mpg US), and the range-topping S600 with a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 523hp (530PS) and 830Nm. Both models are RWD, but in July of the same year, the S500 will get an all-wheel drive 4MATIC edition.
Ola Källenius, member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars responsible for sales commented: “As an addition to the portfolio of S-Class saloons, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class sets new standards in the luxury segment. The vehicle satisfies the very highest requirements in terms of exclusivity appointments and comfort.
