The Mercedes-Benz S600 Maybach Gets Simultaneous World Premieres

In our earlier report about the Mercedes-Benz S600 Maybach, we mentioned that it would have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. However, based on a new information, the upcoming variant would have two world premieres on the opposite sides of the globe. The new S-Class version resurrecting the Maybach namesake will also have its official unveiling happening in an Auto Fair held in Guangzhou, China next month—almost at the same time with the LA event.

The Mercedes-Benz S600 Maybach sits above the standard S-Class. It embodies more luxurious features than the S-Class models we have now.

The S600 has a strong resemblance to its sedan predecessor. However, the length of the car has been stretched out.  It could be noticed that a lot of improvements were made in the C-pillar of the car to enhance its proportions while making its body longer.

The extra length provides its rear passengers more leg room. In addition, longer frame of its body also allows at least one of its seats to be fully-reclined.

Given the heavier weight of the Mercedes-Benz S600 Maybach compared to its contemporaries under the S-Class range, it would likely possess a V12 engine. Several sources claim that the power would come from its rear wheels.

Following the Mercedes S600 Maybach will be an even longer model—the S600 Pullman. According to the patent filed by Mercedes-Benz with the European Patent Office (EPO), the limousine would have more seating capacity. Three rows of seats will be lining up the cabin of the car to accommodate extra passengers.
