Mercedes-Maybach used to be the flagship model of the Mercedes-Benz product range and commanded a very high respect, before it was taken off the shelves. But, Mercedes decided to revive the brand with Maybach S500 and S600 and it was showcased recently at the LA Motor Show. Mercedes now has revealed the price of the uber-luxurious sedan, which will be priced at $167,412 for the starting S500 in the global markets.
Mercedes-Maybach has always been a chauffeur-driven car, and hence, the new S600 comes with more than generous space in the rear. The sedan is touted as the quietest sedan in the world and the wheelbase is extended by 200 mm than the S-Class. Mercedes says that the car will set the new standards of comfort in the industry.
Under the hood, the top of the range S 600 will be powered by a V12 biturbo engine, that has an output of 530 hp and maximum torque of 830 Nm from 1900 rpm. The V8 biturbo engine in the S 500 will produce 455 hp and 700 Nm at 1800 rpm.
The market launch of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is scheduled for February 2015 while the Mercedes has already started taking orders for the new car.
