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 coupe 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 intermediate sanding, is intricately applied by hand in the Maybach Manufaktur by specially trained varnishers.
The exterior look of the top model is rounded off by new luxury 20‑inch multi-spoke wheels. 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-coloured contrasting topstitching. Also new in the range are trim inserts in designo flowing lines Magnolia.
With a length of 5462mm and a wheelbase of 3365mm, the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz model range exceeds the long-wheelbase S‑Class saloon by 200mm 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 equally huge Mercedes-Maybach speaks volumes – since the market launch of the Maybach in February 2015, over 25,000 Mercedes-Maybach S‑Class models have been delivered to customers. In 2017, more than one in ten S‑Class models sold was a Mercedes-Maybach. The main markets are China, Russia and the USA.
