Mercedes Maybach S-Class Marks The Return Of The Maybach Name
|   Monday, December 01, 2014
After two years since its axing, Maybach returns on the market with a powerfull debut conducted simultaneously at two auto shows: Guanghzhou and Los Angeles. The model is now called Mercedes Maybach S-Class and is the flagship of the Stuttgart manufacturer.

The model that has a length of 5453 millimeters marks the return of the Maybach name on the market, and is the flagship Mercedes. It is 20 cm longer, compared to the increased wheelbase version of the S-Class.
The German manufacturer's representatives say that Mercedes Maybach S-Class is the quietest model in world production, at the perceived sound level for rear passengers.

Daimler has stated since the launch of the new Mercedes Maybach S-Class that the new model is not simply a version of their top flagship, but that the name Maybach is a separate division dedicated to luxury. A similar status received the AMG models launched by this division in 2014, being named Mercedes-AMG, not Mercedes-Benz AMG, something that will happen with every Maybach appearance in the near future.

The Mercedes Maybach S-Class range is offered only in the company of two engines, known as the S500 and S600. In the first case, we have a V8 engine which delivers 455 hp between 5,250 rpm and 5,500 rpm. The S500's maximum torque is 700 Nm, and is provided between 1,800 rpm and 3,500 rpm. This model has a combined fuel consumption of 8.9 liters per 100 km, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is achieved in 5.0 seconds.

The top version is the S600, equipped with a V12 engine which provides 530 hp between 4,900 rpm and 5,300 rpm. The maximum torque of this engine is 830 Nm, provided between 1,900 rpm and 4,000 rpm. Mixed consumption is 11.7 liters per 100 km, and the time taken from 0 to 100 km / h is also 5.0 seconds. Regardless of the chosen engine version, top speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h.

In terms of design, the car presents some changes to the front grille compared to the S-Class. Thus, it has the name Maybach located in more places, and is equipped with shorter doors. The major differences between an S-Class L, and an S-Class Maybach is the feel inside, with rear seat passengers being pampered with various gadgets, in addition to extra space and the special seats provided. The German manufacturer offers special glasses of champagne, handmade, for rear seat occupants.

Daimler stopped Maybach limousines production in 2012 after efforts to market cars based on a unique design and a price of 380,000 dollars were not successful among customers. Only 200 Maybach cars were sold in 2011.

Mercedes-Benz is also expected to offer an armored version of the Mercedes Maybach, but like the standard sedan and Pullman variants, it will not be available in the U.S. The armored version is expected to offer VR9-level ballistic protection, as in the S600 Guard.
The Mercedes Maybach S600 and S65 are expected to be available for orders from the spring of 2015.
