In terms of luxury and exclusivity, there will be nothing above the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman in the German automaker’s lineup.
The 6.5-meter (21.3-ft) long limousine had its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show as the second model from newly-established Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand. Described by Mercedes-Benz as a state limousine with a classic face-to-face seat configuration in the rear, the S 600 Pullman is the brand’s superlative in terms of luxury.
In the words of Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales, “the length of 6.50 meters and the wheelbase of 4.42 meters deliver an incredibly spacious interior and first-class comfort. It goes without saying that the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman also embodies the very best in exclusivity.”
The limousine’s rear compartment can accommodate four passengers who can sit facing each other. The compartment is separated by the driver’s cabin by an electrically-operated partition window featuring an 18.5-inch (47 cm) monitor located in front that can also be extended electrically.
Obviously, we don’t have enough space here to describe the Pullman’s features, so we’ll only say that it features an interior completely lined with leather and an exclusive Burmester High-End 3D Surround-Sound system, which is the most expensive surround-sound system found in an automobile.
Power for the Pullman is provided by the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 with 530PS (523hp) and 830Nm (612 lb-ft) of peak torque available at 1,900 rpm. The new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman goes on sale at the beginning of 2016 with prices for un-armored models starting from around €500,000 or about $570,000.
