The absolute flagship of the S-Class range, the Pullman limousine, will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, according to a report from Reuters. The six-seater stretch limo will sit above the recently-unveiled Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, as it will be the longest model available based on the brand’s luxury platform.
It will be around 6.4 meters (21 feet) long, or about 200mm (7.8in) longer than the longest Maybach, the 62. This means the Pullman’s wheelbase will be a full meter longer than the standard version to accommodate an extra row of seats.
The new Mercedes-Benz Pullman’s second row of seats will be facing rearward, allowing passengers to have face-to-face conversations. No official details were offered, but in April last year a report said the armored version of the limousine could cost up to $1 million.
The Pullman may be built to customer specification by Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus and will most likely feature the V12 engine from the S 600. However, it’s not sure whether the Pullman will get an uprated version of the regular S 600’s 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12 engine or will adopt the standard version producing 523hp (530PS) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft) of torque.
As for the design, the S-Class Pullman will most likely look identical to the official trademark photos that surfaced on the web last year.
