Although the Maybach brand of Mercedes-Benz has been discontinued, the German manufacturer is still aiming to enter the high-end luxury vehicle market. Apparently a luxurious and high-priced “super S-Class” will be released by Mercedes-Benz that is meant to compete with the high-end sedans of Rolls-Royce and Bentley.
The “super S-Class” will be equipped with features that are necessary for it to challenge the $200,000 to $250,000 models of Rolls-Royce and Bentley. This was revealed by Dieter Zetsche, the CEO of Daimler. The executive may have alluded to the latest Bentley Flying Spur, which has a base price of $205,000, and the Rolls-Royce Ghost, which is priced at around $250,000.
The “super S-Class” will also feature a better cost basis and provide additional interior and technology features compared to the standard 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It will also provide the company a bigger share of the high-end luxury vehicle market.
Mercedes-Benz is expected to introduce the “super S-Class” by 2015.
