Mercedes S-Class By Hofele Is A Unique Maybach Wannabe

Hofele has unveiled a new one-off project, based on the latest Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Called the ‘Ultimate S’, the “limited edition 1 of 1”, as the Germany-based company calls it, adds a number of exclusive features that could trick someone into thinking they’re looking at a genuine Maybach.

The most striking design element is the Maybach-inspired grille. Nonetheless, this unique S-Class gets bumper revisions as well, chrome-plated elements and a very special dual tone exterior that combines Obsidian Black with Tiffany Gold. The tuner’s logo replaces the traditional three-pointed star badges and the car gracefully rides on a set of multi-spoke rims with a silver look.

The interior of the Ultimate S has been enhanced by the bi-color leather upholstery, with the Hofele logo embossed into the headrests, and different floor mats. Elsewhere, the car features the usual luxury and comfort amenities worthy of the luxo-barge model, including ambient lighting, sunroof, memory seats with massage function, a premium sound system and the gigantic dual-screen layout, to mention just a few.

Hofele’s tuned vehicles aren’t about massive levels of power, and they didn’t announce anything else about this S-Class at the time of writing. Thus, we’re inclined to say that it doesn’t have any technical revisions and, between us, no S-Class model is in dire need of a power boost, especially this latest iteration.

    Looks like a very expensive make over. Why bother? Just get a Maybach for the same money.

      True. Also this one is very poorly spec’d it doesn’t even have the rear climate control adjustment, no ventilated seats, no rear executive package, no rear entertainment and who knows how many options it doesn’t have. Actually real Maybach would be cheaper I think.

        It’s just a rolling ad for the hofele brand name.

      I sat in a used 65k dollars Maybach, and it has more cool features in the back seat than this one.

    WOW, Hofele almost succeeded in making this a good looking car!

  • This Hoff went all the way.

    If I was Middle Eastern or Chinese this would appeal to me, but I am not.
