mercedes-maybach's S-class further refines the german-automaker's top model

mercedes-maybach combines the perfection of the mercedes-benz ‘S-class’ with the exclusivity of maybach. the top automobile model from mercedes-benz is now even more refined. a new radiator grille, optional two-tone paintwork and exclusive colour combinations in the interior ensure an even more majestic look. the world premiere of the luxury car is at this year’s geneva motor show.

a reinterpretation of the mercedes-maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuating the front end, the ‘S-class’s’ grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. it celebrated its world premiere in the ‘vision mercedes-maybach 6’, the exclusive coupé concept which thrilled fans of the brand in 2016. the exterior look of the top model is rounded off by a luxury 20-inch multi-spoke wheel, with three exclusive 20-inch wheel designs to choose from, including the wheel with a 20-hole design familiar from the mercedes-maybach ‘S-cabriolet’.



the two-tone exterior paint finish is also a classic mercedes-maybach theme. the double clear coat is available as an option for all dark colours, and creates a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect and a special impression of depth. the second bodywork clear coat, including intermediate sanding, is intricately applied by hand in the maybach manufaktur by specially trained varnishers.



two exclusive color combinations are offered in the interior: ‘armagnac’ brown / black and ‘savanna’ beige / black. the black maybach exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be ordered with a choice of copper, gold or platinum-colored contrasting topstitching.
