That new grille is inspired by pinstripe suits, and draws from the nose on the rather stunning Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupe concept that debuted at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in the summer of 2016.
The two-tone exterior finishes come in nine different combinations, and ushers in a new double clear coat applied by hand to make the dark colors shine even brighter. New 20-inch wheels come standard, and there are three new versions on offer as well – including the ones we first saw on the S650 Cabriolet.
Those fortunate enough to buy one will also be able to spec two new interior color combinations: armagnac brown with black, and savanna beige with black. An array of top-stitching choices are also on offer in copper, gold, and platinum tones, along with a new Designo Magnolia trim package.
Daimler reports having already delivered over 25,000 Maybach S-Class models around the world since their launch three years ago. Last year, one in every ten S-Class models was ordered in Maybach spec.
Look for the 2019 models to reach US dealers late this summer in both S560 4Matic and S650 V12 specifications. With 463 and 621 horsepower on tap, respectively, they boast 0-60 times of 4.8 and 4.6 seconds. But while customers at this level clearly expect the luxury of instant acceleration, the Maybach S-Class is clearly about more than straight-line performance.
