Mercedes-Maybach hadn’t released any information yet about what it will be called but it is definitely looking gorgeous based on the picture. The new Mercedes-Maybach concept car shown above possesses a two-door coupe design. The auto certainly has traces of the Mercedes-AMG GT. However, this one appears longer and bulkier than the sports car.

What does Rolls-Royce think of the revived Maybach moniker under the Mercedes brand? Well, not much, based on an interview with an executive of the company by CarAdvice. In fact, the ultra-luxury car maker declared that Mercedes-Maybach is not even its direct competitor. Gerry Spahn, the head of communications of the company, said it is a completely different design and category compared to their lineup. Spahn proudly stated that their competition is not necessarily land vehicles. He pointed out that their rivals are airplanes, yatchs, art, and real estate. So, it is short of saying that Mercedes-Maybach is not within the level of Rolls-Royce. Not even close. With the recent… Continue Reading »

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman is set to redefine ultra-luxury experience when it comes out some time in 2015. According to a report from Bloomberg, the extra high-end features of the car will bring up its price at around $1 million.

Its body will be slightly stretched and its wheelbase will be wider to fit three rows of seats, including the driver and front passenger seat. The two rows in… Continue Reading »
Since Daimler killed its ultra-luxury brand Maybach, there’s no longer a car that could be considered more prestigious than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. That means customers who want a car more elite than the S-Class will just have to settle with other brands like BMW and Volkswagen for the Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The solution that Daimler has to cater to the upper echelon of the luxury car segment is its S-Class Maybach Edition, which has a longer wheelbase than the S-Class long wheelbase version.
