There can be a great deal of power in something as simple as a name. Individually, the names Mercedes-Benz and Maybach evoke feelings of prestige, exclusivity and power, which is only amplified when both meet. The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class takes that force a step further by infusing the reputation of the Maybach name into the most prestigious of all Mercedes vehicles.
The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is engineered for the individual who doesn’t simply want to stand apart. It’s a vehicle for creating wide berths, existing in a class all its own and expertly fusing classic luxury with a modernized approach. The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is notable for its extended silhouette, exclusive grille and presiding Mercedes star hood ornament, all-LED exterior lighting and classic-looking 19- and 20-inch multi-spoke wheels. Nothing else on the road today looks quite like the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class — if you drive one, you’re instantly recognizable even among luxury sedan peers.
The functioning idea at work inside the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is creating a first-class-quality home away from home. This is evident in every detail great and small, from the supple diamond-quilted and button-tufted Nappa leather upholstery that runs from the seats to the ceiling to available Black Poplar and Light Burl Walnut wood trims that infuse the interior with an elevated sense of richness. Perhaps the most impressive expression of this idea is industry-first Energizing Comfort Control, which can alter every aspect of your ride from the ambient lighting to the fragrance of the cabin.
Athletic performance is every bit as key to the ethos of Mercedes-Benz and Maybach as unsurpassed luxury and style. This understanding leads to two exceptional engine offerings for the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class — the 4.0-liter biturbo V8 offered with the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S 560 4MATIC Sedan and a handcrafted 6.0-liter AMG® biturbo V12 offered with the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Sedan. Both options are exceedingly impressive on the road and even on the track: The 4.0-liter biturbo V8 delivers 463 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and enables a 0-60 mph spring of 4.8 seconds, while the 6.0-liter AMG® biturbo V12 puts out 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque for a 4.6-second 0-60 mph time.*
The power of the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class far exceeds even that of its combined heritages. With remarkable curb appeal, interior refinement and performance prowess, its presence is palpable and its preeminence over other luxury sedans is profound.
