Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman limousine has been revealed ahead of its planned Geneva motor show debut. The fifth member of the continuously expanding S-Class family pays homage to its illustrious forebear, the original 1965 Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman.
Billed as the indirect successor to the now defunct Maybach 62, the new S-Class Pullman sits atop the entire Mercedes-Benz passenger cars line-up. The German brand’s new flag-ship is also the second model in Mercedes’ recently launched Maybach sub-brand.
Based on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the new Pullman stretch-limo is 6.499 mm long, measuring a full meter more than its platform donor. The wheelbase has also grown by a staggering 1.053 mm, to 4.418 mm, for paragon rear-seat accommodation.
Customers can choose a four seat face-to-face arrangement behind an electrically operated partition window featuring an 18.5-inch monitor or a classic lounge-like two-seat layout with armchairs that can recline individually up to 43.5 degrees. The entire interior is upholstered in leather, from the seats and the doors to the roof liner, the door-frames and the seat consoles. Three analogue instruments concealed in the roof liner are keeping the passengers up to date with speed, time or the outside temperature.
At launch, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman will be available in S600-guise only. The twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 inherited from its shorter Mercedes-Maybach cousin delivers 530 PS (523 bhp) and a stout 830 Nm (613 lb-ft).
First deliveries of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman are planned for early 2016. Official pricing has yet to be disclosed, but Mercedes-Benz suggests a starting retail cost of approximately 500.000 euros for the base model and close to a million for its armored counterpart.
