Bound for a full debut at the coming Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Maybach is showing off a few tricks of its latest and greatest luxury limousine with a few specifications about it.
First of all, this behemoth of a limousine stretches 1,053mm longer the new Maybach S-Class (6,499mm) and has a wheelbase that’s as long as your average C-segment sedan (4,418mm). To give you an idea of how much room is in there, Daimler tells us that the limo is also 100mm taller than your ordinary, not-so-ordinary, S-Class.
Two executive lounge-like seats are available for what we imagine might be the most demanding VVIPs, while two more passengers, presumably bodyguards, may occupy the pull-down seats opposing their high-value personnel. Of course, if the VVVVVVIPs don’t want the company and favour the space, Maybach will do you a limo with just the two seats.
Everything is of course largely electrically-operated, including the cabin partition and the 18-5-inch monitor that’s located in front of the partition, while a choice of two Burmeister sound systems are available, the richer of which being the Burmeister High-End 3D Surround Sound System.
Last, and certainly least in this arrangement, the driver, will have a 6.0-litre V12 biturbo Mercedes engine at his disposal, offering a generous 530hp and 830Nm of torque from 1,900rpm.
2016 is when the first customers are expected to take deliveries of their vehicles, which will have a priced that starts from around 500,000 euros (RM2.05mil when directly converted, if you’re wondering), and an abundance of individualisation options available, including an armoured variant.
