Stylish, effortless superiority combined with trend-setting exclusivity The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class melds the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach, from impressive spaciousness and elegant design to premium craftsmanship and extrovert luxury. At 5453 mm long and with a wheelbase of 3365 mm, the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz model range is 20 cm larger in both dimensions than the S-Class Saloon with long wheelbase. Rear passengers benefit from this increased size as well as from standard equipment that includes executive seats on both left and right, innovative voice amplification and the extended rear trim elements with ambient lighting. In the rear, the Mercedes Maybach S-Class is also the world's quietest production saloon vehicle.

Mercedes-Maybach: a new sub-brand offering peerless exclusivity

Mercedes-Maybach vehicles epitomise peerless exclusivity. Some of the features that distinguish these vehicles from production models include extra spaciousness with lavishly designed, prestigious interiors offering extensive scope for individualisation. As a result, the vehicles fulfil the requirements of even the most discerning customers worldwide.

Mercedes-Maybach is not an equipment line – it is a sub-brand that in future will provide Mercedes-Benz vehicles in an even more exclusive form. Alongside Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach is thus the second sub-brand in the Mercedes-Benz brand world. Providing both prestige and exclusivity, it is aimed at customers for whom status is important.

To enhance the exclusivity, All Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vehicles will be S 600 fitted with its top of the range V12 biturbo engine and output of 390kW (530 hp). It completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds. With a displacement of 5980 cc, the maximum torque of 830 Nm is available from 1900 rpm. As standard, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is fitted with a panoramic sliding sunroof. This roof system and its large glass areas make an especially bright and friendly ambience in the interior. For the first time, the sliding sunroof is available with optional MAGIC SKY CONTROL technology from Mercedes-Benz: the glass can be switched to light or dark at the touch of a button.

“The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is a vehicle that creates its own niche in the luxury segment, outside the existing market divisions, raising the benchmark to an entirely new level. This is also a car that delivers in equal measure the comfort of being chauffer driven or driven by our customers themselves. Strictly speaking, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has no direct competitors because it is positioned in a class of its own. We are confident this vehicle will have immediate appeal for our Middle East markets customers, offering all the technologies and features that our customers are used to from the new S-Class, plus significantly extra on luxury, exclusivity and space,” said Dirk Fetzer, Director of Sales & Marketing at Daimler Middle East & Levant.

A sense of spaciousness: setting new benchmarks for sleeping and resting comfort in the rear

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is not necessarily to be chauffeur-driven. Owners can also enjoy the comfortable driving of this special vehicle. On the other hand, the benefits of extending the wheelbase by 200 mm are felt entirely in the back of the vehicle where the specification has been refined even more. Due to the roofline, it was also possible to further raise the head clearance.

A recommendation that the owner of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will typically be found in the second row are the standard-fit executive seats on the left and right. These rear seats offer a unique level of comfort thanks to a special adjustment kinematics system. In contrast to the norm, the backrest is adjusted separately while the footwell and seat reference point remain unchanged.

The First-Class rear suite (centre console in the rear) (Optional) is a visual continuation of the front console on the centre tunnel. It is equipped with innovative thermo cup holders, which use Peltier technology to cool or warm drinks over a longer period of time.

Like an aircraft seat, the centre console is available with two adjustable tables which can be easily folded in or out using one hand. The table surfaces have leather inserts to provide a comfortable writing surface. As exclusive equipment to the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, passengers can enjoy a drive in style with the two high-quality, silver-plated glasses.

Interior design: the essence of modern luxury

In the interior of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, passengers are enveloped in lounge-style, modern luxury. With its clear architecture, refined materials and stylish controls, the vehicle embodies a sensuous elegance.

For an exclusive look, the front centre armrests with nappa leather or exclusive nappa leather upholstery feature embossed Maybach crests (and also the armrests in the rear in conjunction with the First-Class rear suite). Another special feature in the dashboard is the analogue clock with an IWC design.

The high quality standards of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class are evident from the doors, which even have hand-stitched door trim as part of the standard equipment.

As part of its exclusive interior touches, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class comes with the bespoke Maybach perfume AGARWOOD as part of the AIR-BALANCE package. It also has Voice amplification which makes it much easier for occupants in the front to communicate with the rear passengers as well as HD Voice for telephone calls which provides better, more natural voice quality. Exterior design: elegant and exclusive

In its exterior design, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class combines stylish, effortless superiority with trend-setting exclusivity. The vehicle makes modern luxury come alive in an exceptional way. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is 207 mm longer than the S-Class with long wheelbase. All this additional space is used to boost comfort for rear passengers.

Subtle yet noticeable changes in both the front and rear area differentiate the longest S-Class from its smaller siblings. Three double louvres in chrome within the radiator trim have a formative influence on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class's elegant look. Additional vertical chrome trim discreetly but deeply underlines the special appeal of this extraordinary vehicle. This theme is taken up once again in the design at the tail end.

Safety: intelligent assistance systems and innovations for the rear

Like the S-Class, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is available with numerous new assistance systems that make driving even more comfortable and safer.

In the seat belt buckle extender, an electric motor automatically raises and lowers the buckle. This makes for easier seat belt attachment and reduces any belt slack in the area of the pelvis and chest. In addition to this, the beltbag is an inflatable seat-belt strap that reduces the load on the ribcage in a front impact and is thus able to reduce the risk of injury to passengers in the rear.

The starting price of Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will be US$ 214,200.
