The Mercedes Maybach luxury lineup of cars now has a new addition, the S650 convertible cabriolet priced at €300,000.
The brand confirmed that it will be available for purchase by Spring 2017.
Being an exquisite and expensive model, it will be built in limited numbers. Only 300 of these cars will be manufactured and sold to buyers. The S650 Cabriolet is priced close to its competitor the Rolls Royce Dawn. While the Dawn costs about £267,000, the Mercedes car should be close to £260,000 if we are to convert the European pricing. The car shares a lot of things and is very much a similar edition as the Mercedes AMG S65 Cabriolet.
Under the bonnet, there is a 6.0-liter twin turbo V12 engine powering the car producing up to 621 horsepower. The proportions of the car are same as the drop top version. However, in order to justify the Maybach brand, Mercedes has made a number of changes in the model. It includes large 20-inch forged chrome wheels with a brand new bumper, chrome trim on the sides and the stylish Maybach emblem. The badge shows everyone that you own an exclusive product. It is found on the wing and the puddle light projection. The powertrain is mated to a seven speed automatic gearbox and has AIRMATIC adaptive suspension technology.
According to the auto brand, the Mercedes Maybach S650 cabriolet has an interior that is crafted to perfection. The inspiration for its design is acquired from luxury yachts. It sports a waterfall like leather trim with special diamond quilting on seat bolsters. Each buyer has complete control over their car as they customize the door, instrument panel, dashboard and various other aspects of the Cabriolet to make it as personal as possible.
The 3D effect on the hand finished special veneers make them stand out combined with deep pile floor mats and chrome painted number plaques. The Maybach logo is found in the center of the steering wheel. At least nine different interior color choices are offered from which you can choose the one you like and based on what the brand says, they might even allow you to use more than one color to brighten up the inside of the car.
Swarovski crystal headlamps are used in the model which when integrated with the additional kit brings in travel luggage set and diamond quilting on the car cover. Maximum comfort is delivered by the AIRSCARF neck heating system. Almost every customization option and kit available with the S-Class can be availed for the Mercedes Maybach S650 Cabriolet.
Gullwing doors are always scintillating and the Mercedes Maybach 6 concept is going for it, as confirmed by a teaser image released by the auto brand.
The number of new cars and concept models heading to the Pebble Beach event is rising at a steady rate. Almost every manufacturer has something good to show off but the Mercedes Maybach 6 concept has some great potential to steal the show. The car comes from Mercedes, the company known for style and substances with a large audience base. Besides, the Maybach series is making a comeback after a long break and is probably one of the longest in the series.
Multiple teaser images have been released online throughout the week. The first one showcased the rear end of the model and then we got to see the front fascia. It was exceptionally sharp, sporty and pointed to justify the series the model belongs to. The new teaser shows some of the rear end of the car along with its gullwing doors.
The Mercedes Maybach 6 concept is expected to be about six meters long featuring slender tail lamps mounted on the fender and the rear bumper. The wing mirrors are exceptionally tiny but it seems to be a necessary addition to maintain a low profile. Visibility is expected to be really low as the concept car is keen on keeping you private when on the move.
Gullwing doors add that amazing edge to sports cars. Tesla was keen on using it for their Model X SUV and it led to multiple delays. The doors just didn’t work as intended on the long run. With their expertise in the industry, Mercedes might be aware of this fact and will ensure Maybach 6 gets its special doors without any compromise.
Besides, the car is still in its early stages of design and may undergo many changes before the final version. When opened, the doors provide great wingspan allowing enough space for the passengers to get in. Very little information is available with regards to the Mercedes Maybach 6 concept.
Mercedes is tight lipped about the car as they are waiting for the big reveal at the Pebble Beach event. We will have more to share as soon as the launch takes place and when it does, let’s hope the automobile brand would discuss a possible release date for the Maybach 6. Would it be next year? We hope so!
Being a tease would aptly match Mercedes Benz at the moment. The automaker just dropped an image of the Maybach coupe on Instagram and it was just a silhouette of the car.
While spy pictures are something photographers catch to create hype around the model and give people a quick glimpse of a car before it is officially announced, teaser images like these are totally difficult to decipher. Almost a huge part of the car is hidden in the shadows and all we could see is few inches of the coupe. A launch event for the Mercedes Benz Maybach coupe is set to take place at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The new Maybach is big, long and most importantly scintillating with a stylish outlook. Mercedes is associated with luxury but the company has been eyeing Porsche, Ferrari and other brands known for making great looking cars. Some of the changes that we could notice through the silhouette image are the big chrome strake, bigger fender vents, three pointed hood ornaments and flashback roof adorned with the Maybach badge.
According to Mercedes, the new Maybach is six meters of ultimate luxury. The previous Maybach S600 is 214 inches long and the next gen will probably be 232 inches based on what the company claimed in their teaser statement. The existing wheelbase measured at 132.5 inches could be modified a bit to match the car’s increased size.
On the other side, analysts believe that the teaser image could be of a production car and the not the next Mercedes Maybach as speculated. Such information cannot be confirmed at the moment until the company officially makes the announcement. The S600 is an amazing car with best luxuries incorporated into it and delivers solid performance.
The new car should be on the same lines even though all Mercedes cars are going to be on the pricier side. The existing model is powered by a 6.0-liter twin turbo V12 engine delivering up to 523 horsepower and has 612 lb feet of torque. When they say ultimate luxury, Mercedes really means it as their cars are usually equipped with a champagne chiller, recliner seats, high quality leather interiors and an immersive infotainment system.
Everything that we have to come to expect from the brand and more should be part of the new Mercedes Benz Maybach coupe. Stay tuned till the Pebble Beach event and we might have some interesting information to share by then.
The new Mercedes Maybach S600 is one of the safest cars according to the company and they have also tweaked it in a way that it is as fast as the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Considering the slim and lightweight design of the Spyder, it might sound awkward to compare its speed with the new Maybach which features a heavy build. But, a lot of tweaking and tuning has gone into the vehicle to ensure it is not only a luxury behemoth, but is also capable of offering speed on par with the top sports models available in the consumer market.
After some in-depth tuning by Brabus, the car will offer a massive 1,106 pound feet and can easily touch a speed of 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds. The German tuner who is known for this impressive work on luxury cars had invested enough time to find ways to tweak the V-12 6.0 liter engine to a 6.3 liter engine. Most car mechanics would be intimidated by the build and the engineering that goes into this vehicles. However, Brabus is not someone who easily backs off. Besides, he caters to customers who just wouldn’t settle for less.
There is no need to purchase the Mercedes Maybach S600 and bring it to him, but rather customers around the globe can buy the Brabus Rocket 900 tuning package. While it is obvious that if you live in Germany or anywhere close by his store, you could directly visit the venue to get the new upgrades attached to the vehicle. For everyone else, this is the best option to go for.
The impressive top speed is accomplished with the help of boosting the engine displacement, a traditional method that has been tried and tested by many tuners. A custom made billet crankshaft is combined with larger cylinder bore and longer strokes are used in it. It is also integrated with the precision balanced connecting rods and unique pistons that are forged to match this new setup. Apart from these, the team has also improved the vehicle with bigger turbochargers and bigger pipes that favor an easy exhaust system to balance the increased load.
A custom body kit, tires and interiors can be supplied if the customer wishes to, confirmed Brabus. Speed lovers may not go for a Mercedes Maybach S600, but for those who do; this custom kit seems to be the best option to go for.
