Mercedes-Maybach S Class Unveiled at LA Auto Show

Posted by: Shelton Kwan onNovember 19th, 2014


Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG, and now, Mercedes-Maybach. Mercedes discontinued the Maybach name in 2012, but have decided to resurrect the brand to fight the likes of Bentley and Rolls Royce. Compared with the standard S class, if you can even call the S standard, the Mercedes-Maybach versions will feature even higher quality of materials, finer details, and a cockpit that’s more first class than business class. Even the seat belt buckles glow.

2 models are being introduced in this brand resurrection, starting with the S500 with a 455hp 4.7L biturbo V8. Topping the range is the S600 with the almighty 6.0L biturbo V12 producing a monstrous 530hp. Later in 2015, in June to be exact, the S500 4Matic version arrives, which is a welcome sight for the Canadian market. At press time there is no mention of an AMG version, but don’t be surprised if one makes its way to the showroom if the Mercedes-Maybach brand does well.

How will the new Mercedes-Maybach brand do? Let’s hope better than the last time they resurrected the famed name. Expect to see the new Mercedes-Maybachs February of 2015, while pricing will be announced a couple of months earlier in December. Chauffeur not included.
