The Mercedes-Maybach S650 is based on the open-top S-Class and has adopted the latter’s classic aesthetic proportions, among other features, with highlights which include the dynamic silhouette with coupe-like soft-top and the sidewall dropping line which slopes down towards the rear.
Exclusive Mercedes-Maybach features include a new front bumper with upgraded lower section and also numerous chrome highlights to visibly enhance the overall exclusivity of this cabriolet. The Maybach emblem is elegantly featured on the vehicle’s front fenders. Other special elements on the exterior include high-quality 20-inch Maybach forged wheels in a powerful design and a bichromatic finish. Upon opening the doors, the Maybach logo is projected onto the floor by means of entrance lighting.
In the interior, the fully leather-trimmed Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet brings some of the visionary ideas of the Concept S-Class Coupe show car (IAA 2013) to series production. These include dynamic “flowing lines” found in the seats. This waterfall-like seat upholstery layout is achieved with the aid of progressive perforations. An eye for detail is also demonstrated in the outer diamond quilting on the seat side bolsters.
The unique trim elements are commissioned individually for each vehicle based on the selected colour and grain. In addition to trim on the instrument panel and door panelling, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet exclusively boasts a trim element on top of the convertible top compartment with inlaid Maybach logo.
Two of the three Maybach Cabriolet configurations feature “flowing lines” trim. In combination with the other trim elements, a unique yacht ambience is created – inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Style “Arrow 460-Granturismo” yacht.
The flowing lines are generated by a combination of precision machining and traditional craftsmanship. As part of this, a substrate beneath the fine wood veneer of the trim element is exposed in a special process using a fine milling. The individually milled lines follow the shape of the trim, thus creating a three-dimensional effect.
Mercedes-Maybach logos are located on the front side of the seats (embroidered), on the back of the head restraints (embossed) and also inlaid in the stowage cover of the center console. Other details include deep-pile floor mats, chrome-plated “1 of 300” lettering on the cupholder, and the steering wheel which features Maybach lettering on the lower bezel.
The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is equipped as standard with an exclusive travel luggage set from Maybach – Icons of Luxury. “The Affinity” set comprises two large travel bags as well as two lifestyle bags made of original vehicle leather.
In terms of form and colour, which are coordinated with the interior variant selected by the customer, the bag set is tailored to match the Cabriolet. The bags can be securely attached to each other with straps to enable optimum use of the space in the trunk. Polished and chrome-plated “1 of 300” lettering serves to highlight the level of exclusivity.
Just like the vehicles from Mercedes-Maybach, the elegant items of luggage from the license partnerMaybach – Icons of Luxury GmbH meet high standards in terms of design, materials and manufacturing.
Each Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet includes a car cover made of high-quality fabric that matches the soft-top colour, with diamond quilting and an embroidered Maybach emblem. In addition, each Mercedes-Maybach Cabriolet is delivered with a special welcome pack. This comprises a key ring made of the same Nappa leather used in the vehicle’s interior, with a Maybach emblem and “1 of 300” lettering, as well as a certificate signed by Dr Dieter Zetsche, chairman of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
The luxury cabriolet’s superior drive system relies on the 6-litre V12 biturbo engine with an output of 621bhp. Power is transferred to the rear axle courtesy of the Mercedes-developed 7G-Tronic 7-speed automatic transmission, while an Airmatic suspension with steplessly variable damping control ensures a special, comfortable driving sensation.
