After a bit of the standard anticipation and teasing, the lavish Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 has rolled out. The company chose the well-attended Los Angeles Auto Show to unveil the comeback model, with much to admire and many questions in its wake. Will the symbol of the perfect luxury car survive another round on the market? It is just two years after the funeral, after all! The Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 is an exquisite example of what a true luxury automobile should be. But can she survive in this rather complicated market?
The Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 at a glance:
- Power is derived via a thirsty new 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine. The engine was produced meticulously at the AMG division, so you know it is outstanding and aggressive.
- Extended wheelbase. Yes, this version of the lux limousine is even more dramatically drawn out, perfect for chauffeuring and laden with amenities.
- Like the Maybach 57 predecessor, the interior seats are all electronically adjustable. That means everyone will be comfortable, not just a driver and front passenger.
- Detailed Napa leather lines the entire cabin, as one would expect from a front-running model.
It was just two years ago that the upscale Maybach brand was buried by the brand because she was not exactly carrying her weight. It seems that this time the two have a new arrangement, wherein the Maybach brand will exist much like the Mercedes-Benz AMG performance division. To put that into perspective, the AMG division is a bit of a producer, attracting and unloading a variety of high-performance offerings. The Maybach badge could self-sustain in the area of exclusivity, arguably.
Will the Mercedes-Benz Maybach and perhaps even a Pullman rise from the ashes and once again grace our roadways? Stay tuned!
