Mercedes-Maybach S600 - pricing, specification and pictures
Mercedes has brought back the Maybach name, and it is now available with prices starting at £165,700...
The Mercedes-Maybach S600 has gone on sale with prices starting at £165,700. First UK deliveries of the super-luxury model are planned for June.
What is it?
The S600 marks the return of the Maybach name two years after it was pulled by Mercedes-Benz because of faltering sales. It returns on this V12-powered, extra-long-wheelbase S-Class model.
The luxurious saloon was revealed to the public at the LA motor show last November. The car is planned to compete in a segment of the market occupied by the Bentley Flying Spur and Rolls-Royce Ghost.
It is differentiated from other S-class models by a series of subtle exterior styling details, including a more stately style of grille and lengthened rear doors.
How much does it cost?
Pricing starts at £165,700, but this asking price comes with a choice of various finishes. The only upgrades are more opulent paint finishes, and a First Class Cabin.
How much equipment does it come with?
Customers get a choice of leather, wood and stitching options as standard, and a whole host of luxuries. These include air-conditioning, heated and massaging seats, armrests that can be warmed, a system to pump scented, ionised air around the cabin, a 1540 watt Burmester 3D surround sound system with 24 speakers.
The First Class Cabin swaps the three-seat bench for two individual seats, which can recline to 43.5 degrees.
What engine does it come with?
Power for the Mercedes-Maybach S600 comes from a revised version of the company’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12, produced at AMG.
