Word had been going around for quite some time now about the planned resurrection of the Maybach name. However, the brand will be demoted as a mere variant of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class this time. According to the people within the company, the Mercedes S-Class Maybach will have more luxurious features than the top-of-the-line S600 variant and S65 models.
Citing Gorden Wagener as a source of information, Car and Driver revealed the specifications of the upcoming Mercedes S-Class Maybach. The source claimed the length of the new car under the sub-brand will be around 5.5 meters or approximately 18 feet.
The head of Mercedes’ global design explained that plenty of developments were made in the C-pillar of the car to improve its proportions. However, he said it will still retain the significant features of the S-Class.
The report stated the Mercedes S-Class Maybach would likely have a turbocharged V12 engine under its hood. So, expect a lot of power from the car. It should be noted too that power will likely come from the rear wheels of the car.
Then, it would have a fully-reclining seat, plus Maybach badges. In addition to that, it will be equipped with the Magic Body Control suspension to ensure the highest level of comfort to its occupants.
The news source mentioned the Mercedes S-Class Maybach will likely be officially introduced next month. The official unveiling will take place at the L.A. Auto Show.
