Vehicle Spotlight: Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet
A limited edition of 300.
The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 is based on the open-top S-Class and has adopted the latter’s classic aesthetic proportions, among other features, with highlights which include the dynamic silhouette with coupé-like soft top and the sidewall dropping line which slopes down towards the rear.
The high-end appointments in the interior make up part of the vehicle’s special characteristics. The drive system requirements are catered for by the 6.0-litre V12 engine with an output of 463 kW (630 PS).
Exclusive fabric cover and certificate.
The scope of delivery of each Mercedes-Maybach Cabriolet includes a car cover made of high-quality fabric in the soft top colour, with diamond quilting and embroidered Maybach emblem and lettering on the bonnet. In addition, each Mercedes-Maybach Cabriolet is delivered with a special welcome pack.
This exclusive welcome pack includes a key ring made of the same nappa leather used in the vehicle with the Maybach emblem and “1 of 300” lettering, along with a certificate signed by Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
Exclusive Mercedes-Maybach features.
Exclusive Mercedes-Maybach features include a new front bumper with upgraded lower section and also numerous chrome highlights to visibly enhance the special aspirations of luxury. The Maybach emblem is discreetly but elegantly featured on the vehicle’s wing. Other special elements on the exterior include the high-quality 20-inch Maybach forged wheels in a powerful design and a bichromatic finish. On opening the doors, the Maybach logo is projected onto the floor through entrance lighting.
Interior: Visionary ideas.
In the interior, the fully leather-trimmed Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet brings some of the visionary ideas of the Concept S-Class Coupé(IAA 2013) to series production. These include the dynamic “flowing lines” in the seats. This waterfall-like seat upholstery layout is achieved with the aid of progressive perforations.
An eye for detail is also demonstrated in the outer diamond quilting on the seat side bolsters and the Budapest piping. All of the optional extras of the S-Class Cabriolet come as standard on the Mercedes-Maybach, including AIRCAP, AIRSCARFand Swarovski headlamps.
The powertrain: A fitting biturbo V12.
The luxury cabriolet’s superior drive system relies on the 6.0-litre biturbo V12 engine with an output of 463 kW (630 PS). Power transmission to the rear axle comes courtesy of the 7G-TRONIC, while the AIRMATIC® suspension with steplessly variable damping control ensures a special driving sensation.
The first cabriolet of the Mercedes-Maybach brand celebrated its debut at the LA Auto Show and is all set to hit markets this Spring.
