In early November, Mercedes Benz has dusted off and revamped the Maybach s600 via the LA Auto show after it was originally discontinued in 2013 when talks with Aston Martin over pricing fell through. But, we should have known better then think that Mercedes Benz would let one their ultra luxury lines become a thing of the past.
This ultra lavish stretched S-class has a v12, 6.0- liter twin turbo engine, with a generous 612lb ft. of torque. The 523 horsepower Maybach Limo goes from 0 to 62mph in just five seconds flat and hits top speeds of 150 mph. The MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension with ROAD SURFACE SCAN makes for the smoothest ride on the most uneven roads, according to Mercedes.
We noticed the most noticeable change was the extra interior space thanks to the increase in wheelbase by 7.9 inches, giving even more legroom and headroom. All good news for the rear passengers. These extra inches add that extra legroom you need to sit back and get a massage.
While cruising around town, the cabin provides all the sumptuous comforts you’ve come to expect from Mercedes, including self-massaging, electronically adjustable Nappa leather seats with powered calf supports, foot rests, wraparound wood trim, a full panoramic sunroof including privacy shades for the rear window and tables that unfold from the rear center console.
Claiming to be the worlds quietest back-seat experience and thanks to the 3-D sound system provided by Burmester this is a rolling mastering studio. As far as keeping the new car smell, no worries, Maybach’s air-filtration system provides the cabin with the it’s own custom fragrance.
Editor’s Update: The all new Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 starts at $189,350.
