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.
