PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Limo Has Superb Specs

Mercedes-Benz has a range of Maybach variants available, but they are all just slightly more luxurious versions of the S-Class on which they are based. The Maybach you want is the stretched Pullman model which is a proper limo. And the version you want is the 2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman because it’s the best. 

As if the 6.5 meter stretched body was enough to set the 2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman apart from its regular counterparts, the company has given it a number of distinguishing styling features. The new Pullman comes with a bespoke front grille modeled on a striped suit, and 20-inch wheel in 10-hole design which is the only popular part of the old Maybach surviving in the new generation. Customers also have the choice of two-tone paint finishes, and new interior colors including magma grey, mahogany brown and silk beige/deep sea blue.

2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is intended to be a chauffeur-driven limousine. So it has only two really cool chairs in the rear compartment, which is separated from the driver’s compartment an electrically operated partition. But even when the partition is closed, the rear passenger can have a view of what’s ahead thanks to a front-mounted camera. Also new for the 2019 Pullman is the “2 cabin sound” feature of the sound system which allows for personalized music for each compartment of the cabin. All the other “regular’ features of the Maybach, such as fridge, bottle cooler, champagne glass holder, reclining seats, TV screens and… are all present as well.

The amazing Pullman can be ordered from March 15 with a 630 horsepower V12 biturbo engine. The price start from around half a million euros.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Gets Cosmetic Upgrades

In an effort to keep the discerning customers of their Maybach series happy, Mercedes has come up with a number of visual upgrades for the 2018 version of the luxury saloon. In this treatment the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class gets even more exquisite interior color combos, optional two-tone paint jobs, and a new radiator grille. 

If we cut to the chase, the two-tone paint works available for the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class include armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black. There will be nine color combinations available in total, complete with double clear coat which creates a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect that gives the paint job a special depth.

These should improve the aesthetics of the Maybach, especially when teamed up with new luxury 20-inch multi-spoke wheels. on the whole three exclusive 20-inch wheels are available for the Maybach, including a 20-hole design from the Mercedes-Maybach S-Cabriolet. As for the interior, black Maybach Exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be ordered with a choice of copper-, gold- or platinum-coloured contrasting topstitching. There is also trim inserts in designo flowing lines Magnolia for those with an ultra-refined taste.

The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class featuring the new upgrades can be seen at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in S560 guise with or without all-wheel-drive. It features a 469 hp/700 Nm 4.0 liter V8 engine.

PostHeaderIcon Maybach G650 Landaulet Fetches €1.2 Million in Charity Auction

I’m sure you remember the Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet because, well, how can one forget such a thing. The G650 is a super-deluxe off-roader produced in very limited numbers. All G650 Landaulets were pre-sold by the time the car was revealed except for the last one, which has now been auctioned off for a tremendous price. 

Auctioned by Bonhams to benefit Laureus Sport for Good, a foundation of which Mercedes-Benz is one of the founders and biggest supporters, the 99th Maybach G650 Landaulet was bought by a Belgian gentleman who paid the princely sum of 1,200,000 EUR for it. That is almost twice what the other 98 Landaulets cost their lucky owners, although those cars didn’t support a good cause like this one.

Sitting 5.3 meters long and 2.2 meter tall, the Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet is one the result of one of those rare and glorious moments where the accountants and marketing experts are shut away in the closet, and engineers and designers are given free roam. The car defies almost all logic, mixing elements that wouldn’t normally pair. Powered by a 630 horsepower V12 engine, the mammoth off roader features a cabin environment that puts the most luxurious private jets to shame. We have to say though, it does have an unsightly fabric roof in the back. But that’s a small price to pay for having an open top section in the back where you can stand and shoot at your favorite game while travelling across the African Sahara.









“Today fascination with the G-Class is more prevalent than ever”, says Gunnar Güthenke, Manager of Mercedes-Benz G GmbH. “It is a sought-after vehicle as it is forever reinventing itself – and yet remains true to its origins. It was and always will be unmistakably a G-Class, while at the same time offering plenty of opportunities for individual wishes. Our exclusive Landaulet model is the best example of this.”

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes Let Us Down with the Maybach Vision 6 Cabriolet

Now that we’ve seen Mercedes’ “latest” concept, I have to say that I’m not impressed in the least bit. When we first saw the teaser video back at the beginning of August,(art177208) I thought for sure we would get the “big surprise” that Chief Designer Gorgon Wagener promised us. This concept was supposed to be an “icon for the brand,” but all I see is a lazy concept that was thrown together just a few weeks before it was set to debut… Did you forget there was a concept lawn at Pebble Beach, Mr. Wagener? Now I’m wondering if that teaser video from within the bowels of the Advance Design Center was actually the very first meeting to discuss the new concept.

With that said, I will say that the Vision 6 looks good as a droptop, but it definitely falls short of what was promised. In the video, it was even mentioned that the front end would be “different.” Of course, they were talking about in comparison to the Concept IAA, but still. In the end, the Vision 6 Cabriolet is every bit the Vision 6 with a standalone windshield and no roof. Of course, they did change the interior a bit to account for a slightly revised dashboard with a set of HVAC vents in the center – that’s something the coupe doesn’t have. It is also a bit less futuristic in comparison but still far on the red side of my “never-gonna-see-production” meter. The car itself is attractive, and I even love the scheme of the interior, but when I saw the similarities in Merc’s second teaser video, I should have known. But, I don’t want to be all negative, so let’s move on from this rant and talk about something good that comes from this specific concept.

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet-0

As promised by a very intriguing teaser, Daimler dropped a new version of the Maybach 6 concept at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concourse. The new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet still look like a sail boat with wheels, but it’s 110 percent hotter than its hard-roofed sibling. 

And it’s not an exact copy of the coupe with the roof photoshopped out, either. Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet comes with a number of new highlights, especially inside the cabin which is designed to offer “360° open-air luxury lounge” feeling. It features high-end materials such as  rose gold for the trims, quilted crystal white nappa leather with Mercedes star buttons, and open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminium, not to mention some nice and elaborate ambient lighting trickery.

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is so called because it measures a staggering six meters in length. True to its luxury yacht aspirations, the car carried only two passengers and features dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and chrome highlights. The 24 inch centerlock wheels is a car-like features you might appreciate. Maybach 6 Cabrio is powered by four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors for  550 kW (750 hp) of all-wheel-drive power, delivering a 0-100 km/h time of under four seconds and governed top speed of 150 km/h. The range is 500 km or 200 miles and there is a quick charging system which gives you enough juice in five minutes to cover 100 km.

Mercedes-Maybach 6 Convertible-teaser-1

A year after the debut of Mercedes-Maybach 6 at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concourse, the company is now bringing a convertible version to this year’s event. Now does this mean the next iteration will be a production model? Well, let’s just say they wouldn’t have gone to the trouble making two of these things if it were just a show car. 

While it is not hard to imagine what this Mercedes-Maybach 6 Convertible might look like, and indeed there are a whole bunch of renderings on the web to give you a speculative early look, we are still pretty excited to catch a glimpse of this super deluxe open-top cruiser with its huge bonnet, exquisite wheels, and lounge-like interior.

What we like best about this whole Mercedes-Maybach 6 project is that it tries to bring back the splendor of classic luxury saloons from the 20s and 30s but in a contemporary guise. Even if this thing remains a show car, we’d still say kudos to Mercedes-Benz for trying to liven up our lives with such a majestic creation in this age of downsizing and minimalism. And if the 6 became a limited edition production model, well, we’re going to be envious of the very few who will be able to pay the six or maybe even seven-figure sum that the car would definitely cost.

Mercedes Maybach G650 Landaulet-0

So Daimler waited for the new Mercedes?Maybach G650 Landaulet to get an unofficial reveal via a spotter video before they come out with the official details. Everbody was expecting the Maybach SUV to be based on the latest GLS, but the Germans dropped a bomb, figuratively this time, by basing the thing on the 4×4 G-Wagen.

Expanding the extensive G-Class family, the Mercedes?Maybach G650 Landaulet is now officially the ultimate version of this road-going military vehicle topping the G63 6×6 and G500 4×4 squared. The Maybach connection obviously means the vehicle has a super posh interior and an unnecessarily long list of features and equipment, but it also means the SUV packs a 630 horsepower V12 engine – probably the only V12 vehicle with portal axles and an electric soft top at the back.

The unique specs of the Mercedes?Maybach G650 Landaulet makes it something quite unique and a must-have for the millionaires who just have to have the latest ultimate in everything. Not many of them will be able to get their hands on the Landaulet though, and not just because of the price tag that will almost certainly be in the neighborhood of half a million euros. The reason the G650 will be a hard catch is because they are only making 99 units and most of them are probably already pre-sold.

While the complete details of the Landaulet G650 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show Mercedes is willing tell us at this stage that this go-anywhere luxury limo features electrically multi-adjustable individual seats that can be conveniently set to a fully reclined position and have ENERGIZING massage function wit inflatable air chambers, a large business console with thermal cup holders between the individual seats, two tablets, two glove compartments as well as grab handles, and a partition for privacy. They call this the “G cockpit”.

PostHeaderIcon If You're Not A "Top Customer" Of Mercedes, Don't Expect To Get Your Hands On The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet

The math involving the production of the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is tricky when you consider that the German automaker is only building 300 units of the luxury convertible and that of those 300 units, only 75 will go to the U.S. market. That’s not a lot of models to offer, so in lieu of making the S650 Cabriolet available to everyone, Mercedes is instead going to its VIP customers first and giving them, in the words of Mercedes-Benz USA Dietmar Exler, “the right of first refusal.”

Not that Mercedes USA is going to sweat trying to sell the 75 units of the S650 Cabriolet – the automaker has already received plenty of interest in the special edition convertible during its debut party last week. All 75 available units are expected to sell out quickly in the U.S., even if model comes with a pretty steep $320,000-plus price tag.

Given the car’s status and exclusivity, the price is where you expect it to be. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s inundated with the most luxurious of features and amenities, not to mention at 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that produces 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power to propel the luxury convertible from 0-to-60 mph in 4.0 seconds to go with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

It’s unclear how long Mercedes USA is going to take to sell out the Maybach S650 Cabriolet, but considering the demand for the car and the fact the super-luxury convertible will likely only last a model year or less, all 75 units should be scooped up faster than it takes to write all those zeros in the checkbook. Or as Exler proudly told Automotive News: “We’ll be running out. We’re pretty happy with the way it’s going.”

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6

The 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has already kicked off and numerous automakers have unveiled new products, mostly in concept form. Among them is Mercedes-Benz, which showcased a brand-new concept car wearing the “Maybach” badge. It goes by the name Vision 6 and it’s the wildest vehicle to feature the Maybach name in the modern era.

Not only spectacular on the outside, the German coupe sports the latest technology Mercedes-Benz has to brag about. It’s also pretty massive for a two-door coupe. And by “massive” we mean it’s nearly six meters (18.5 feet) long, or about as long as the extended wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. For reference, the Mercedes-Maybach S500/S600 is “only” 5.5 meters (18 feet).

In many ways, including size, the Vision 6 is a spiritual successor to the Maybach Exelero one-off that the German brand built for Fulda tires back in 2004.

As you’d expect from a Mercedes-badged concept car, the Vision 6 features a massive amount of new technology to go with the wild design, as well as a fuel-efficient drivetrain built around at least one electric motor. Don’t get your hopes up for a production version, but a two-door Maybach based on the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe isn’t out of the question.

Updated 08/22/2016: We added a series of images taken during the concept’s official debut at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Check them out in the picture gallery.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes Brings Maybach SUV Back On The Table

You know the SUV market is alive and healthy when a company that was axed just three years ago and revived last year could now get its own (luxury) family hauler. I am, of course, talking about Maybach and the possibility that Mercedes could finally green light an über luxurious SUV for its premium brand.

Mercedes board member Ola Källenius let the cat out of the bag in a conversation with Top Gear, although he did throw out the nugget of information with a couple of caveats. First, it’s still not an absolute certainty. Second, if Mercedes does give the thumbs up, it’s not going to arrive anytime soon. As it is, Källenius explained, a Maybach SUV isn’t likely to happen if Mercedes tapped into its current platform. It wouldn’t make sense using that because a Maybach SUV would need to be carefully planned if it hopes to make a dent in a market that’s currently populated by the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and Maserati Levante.

The safer bet would be to develop the next-generation platform with the model in mind, something that the German automaker is unlikely to rush just so it can accommodate the model. While that’s a little disappointing, those who have been eagerly waiting for a Maybach SUV aren’t going to sweat the specifics if it means that there’s renewed consideration for the model.

The good news is that it’s back on the table and that the growing clout of the premium SUV market means that Mercedes won’t be too quick to dismiss the model the way it did in the past. So cross your fingers that the decision-makers over at Stuttgart will consider the benefits of having a Maybach SUV on the market. At the very least, having that model means that Mercedes will have a presence in what is fast becoming one of the most competitive segments in the business.

Brabus Maybach Rocket 900-0

At the 2016 Geneva Motor Show the Bottrop-based tuner Brabus unveiled a new version of their heavily tricked-out Mercedes-Maybach featuring the Rocket 900 and iBusiness packages. Pitched as the ultimate super sport, super luxury saloon car, the Brabus Maybach Rocket 900 costs about half a million dollars.

The heart of the Brabus Maybach Rocket 900 is an increased-displacement 6.3 V12 twin-turbo which develops 900 HP (887 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft). The engine kit includes modifications such as billet crankshaft with longer stroke, larger cylinder bore, special exhaust manifolds, 80mm downpipes, free-flow metal catalysts and a stainless-steel BRABUS high-performance exhaust system, intake module and special air filter box with larger cross-section and special filters as well as “Gold Heat Reflection” sheathing for lowering the temperature.

The powertrain gives this road going private jet a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) while 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is dealt with in just 3.7 seconds.

With the kind of performance Brabus Maybach Rocket 900 delivers, major structural upgrades were in order. Brabus has knocked it out of the park with through the use of 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock VI evo, Monoblock F and Monoblock R “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels, revised MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension with 25mm lower ride height, uprated brakes, and a new aero kit consisting of revised front bumper with large air intakes and a spoiler lip, new rear bumper with diffuser insert, and aero side skirts.

Then there is the interior treatment which is without a question the ultimate in luxury, exclusivity and connectivity. Brabus Maybach comes with a limitless variety of types of leather and Alcantara in any desired color, and a range of wood or carbon inlays, also available in any color you desire. Some of the highlights include 400-km/h speedometer, high-gloss piano lacquer trim, two power-retractable tables, two Microsoft Surface computers, Internet via a 4G high-speed router, and …

Maybach S600 Guard-0

If you are an important person, or just feel like you’re important enough to need a bulletproof car, Mercedes-Benz has just announced a new version of the Maybach with VR10 protection level which might interest you. The new Mercedes Maybach S600 Guard is the ideal vehicle if you are planning a vacation in Syria this spring.

Thanks to its VR10 grade, Mercedes Maybach S600 Guard can withstand pretty much any weapon a run of the mill terrorist can get his stinking hands on, up to and including assault rifles with steel core bullets and hand grenades. So unless they fire at you with something like a .50 Cal machine gun or a Barrett, you’re going to be fine. After all, it’s not like the adversary is going to miss you, what with the Maybach being 20 cm larger in both dimensions than the S-Class Saloon.

How they have managed to build this level of protection into the Maybach S600 Guard is a secret, but Mercedes can reveal that protective components of special steel are integrated into the cavities between the body structure and the outer skin, and that the windows  are coated with polycarbonate on the inside for splinter protection, and have outstanding visual characteristics, despite their laminated structure.

Boasting the same power and luxury features as the standard Maybach, the S600 Guard is understandably more expensive at 470,000 Euros.

Maybach S600 Pullman

If you were disappointed by the new Mercedes-Maybach because it was just an S-Class with more leather inside, here’s something substantially different to cheer you up. This is the upcoming Maybach S600 Pullman, a proper limousine built in partnership with Brabus, boasting a length of 6.5 meters.

This Maybach S600 Pullman is a test car, as it says on the back, so the finished product might still look a bit different from what you see here. But front and rear-end designs remain, crucially, S-Class. We do however dig the weird tint on the side windows which appear to be featuring the same sort of technology Mercedes uses in their Magic Sky Control roofs.

As the name suggests, Maybach S600 Pullman will have the 600 engine which is a V12 bi-turbo unit capable of developing 530 horsepower. That said, this thing is a Brabus production, and those guys cannot see an engine and not tune it. So we are looking forward to see what they have in store for the luxury limo.

hamilton-maybach

We are having a hard time understanding the new hair color Lewis Hamilton is sporting these days. But you have to give it to him, he’s made Formula 1 cool again. And it s a new kind of cool, a more hip kind rather than the old F1 glamour which, in all honesty, was a bit pretentious.

Lewis hangs out with the Hollywood A-listers and has many friends in the music business. He dates pop stars, and he has so many tattoos, doctors get dizzy when they have to give him a physical. Where does Lewis find time between all this to win so many races, we have no idea.

But we like the man and we’re happy that he’s got yet another cool “whip” in form of a white Mercedes Maybach S600. Whether he’s bought this bad boy or it’s a gift from Mercedes F1 is not clear. But either way, the car is a nice complement, and a different addition, to Lewis Hamilton’s exquisite collection which also includes a blue McLaren P1 and a purple Pagani Zonda.

Mercedes Maybach S600 is powered by a 530 horsepower V12 engine. But one would imagine Lewis will not be driving this car himself, but ride in the back, thinking about the next pop singer he wants to date.

The 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 is already one of the most powerful, luxurious and exclusive production sedans on the planet, so what is a customer to do if he wants even more power, luxury and exclusivity? Send it to Brabus. Introduced earlier this year, the Brabus 900 shows the tuning potential of Mercedes’ flagship luxury sedan, and the world got its first live look at the high-powered Maybach limousine at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

From the engine to the highly detailed interior, the German tuner house has put its touches on every aspect of the latest Maybach, creating what is essentially a four-wheeled alternative to a private luxury jet. Now this isn’t the first time Brabus has gone to work on a Maybach sedan, but this new Brabus 900 far surpasses its predecessor in every regard, including making that car’s output of 749 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque seem downright feeble.

brabus-maybach-900-tour

One of the stars of this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), at least among the tuner cars, was Brabus Maybach 900. Though it looks like a normal S-Class on the surface, whichever way you cut this car it is the ultimate luxury saloon, quite possibly ever.

Brabus Maybach 900 Rocket is powered by the firm’s 900 horsepower V12 engine and it has all the luxury and comfort of a Maybach. That is quite a recipe. But to truly understand what this beast is all about, you need to get up close and personal with it, something you can now manage thanks to Shmee150 and his in-depth look at the car:

So to quickly recap, Brabus Maybach 900 packs 900 horsepower and 1,500 Nm of torque; it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.7 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 350 km/h; it features 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock VI evo and Monoblock R “PLATINUM EDITION wheels; MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension with 25mm lowering; a subtle aero kit; and BRABUS “iBusiness” system with every connectivity and entertainment feature you can imagine. And the cost of all this goodness? Just over half a million Euros!

Brabus Mercedes-Maybach-0

Brabus has released details and pictures of their first upgrade program for the new Mercedes-Maybach. 900 horsepower, 1,500 Nm of torque, a top speed of 350 km/h plus, and an even more luxurious interior are some of the highlights of the extraordinary Brabus Mercedes-Maybach.

The more hard-core petrolhead among you have already noticed, reading the figures above, that Brabus Mercedes-Maybach is powered by the same engine the German tuner puts in their Rocket 900 S-Class. It’s a 6.3 liter V12 twin-turbo unit tuned to the max by Brabus to deliver 900 hp/1,500 Nm, corresponding to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

But a Maybach is first and foremost a luxury limo. You may not notice how luxurious this car really is looking at on the outside, even with Brabus’ subtle body kit and Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” 21-inch forged wheels. But step inside and you are greeted by the finest leather, Alcantara, precious wood and carbon fibers and you can have them in any desired color.

What really sets the Brabus Mercedes-Maybach aside from the standard Maybach, though, is the “iBusiness” high-tech multimedia system featuring Apple components that turn the rear passenger component into an office, a luxury lounge, or a mobile movie theater.

Maybach 62 S Office-K-0

Even though there is an all-new Mercedes Maybach available for you to buy today, the original, which was actually a financial disaster for the company, still looks more impressive, sort of more authoritative. The ultimate version of this generation of the luxury limo is the Maybach 62 S and it has been the subject of  an upgrade program by Japanese tuner Office-K.

In many ways the Maybach 62 S is the perfect car for OFK to work on. Just like the tuner, the car has some eccentricities that some people find cool and interesting while others shun as vulgar and revolting. Just look at the wheels they have put on this Maybach. Not even Flavor Flav would approve of them for this car.

Speaking of the wheels, they are Forgiato NIDDO-M 22-inch rims with a special finish that complements the pearl white paint job the Maybach has been treat to. The car needed a respray because of the custom body kit Office-K has installed on it – a body kit that, again, is not really suitable for the character of the car.

Other highlights of Office-K Maybach 62 S include updated 2010 model door mirrors, lowered suspension (although why would you want to lower a car designed to deliver a plush and comfortable ride is beyond us), and custom headlights.

PostHeaderIcon Bentley Mulsanne Speed Vs. Mercedes Maybach: Video

Have you ever had a difficult time deciding whether to buy a Bentley Mulsanne or a Mercedes-Benz S-Class? Of course you have, it’s something we all struggle with almost daily. Motor Trend did a video comparison of the Mulsanne and the S65 AMG a while back, but now there is an S600 Maybach and a Mulsanne Speed, making the previous video worthless as a means of easing our anxiety over the decision of which car to buy. But just in time to keep us from spiraling into a serious depression over it, Motor Trend has released a new video.

Since this is a comparison of two limousines, the reviewer only gives a brief impression of what the cars are like from behind the wheel, and the majority of the review takes place from the back seat. The level of comfort, quality of the materials and ease of access to champaign are all factored into this review, but it obviously mostly boils down to a matter of taste, as both are pretty exceptional vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon Clash of the Luxury Titans: Maybach vs Mulsanne Speed

Maybach Mulsanne Speed

On this episode of Motor Trend’s Head to Head we join a heavily bearded Jonny Lieberman as he sets out to choose the best super deluxe saloon car money can buy today. The contenders include the new Mercedes Maybach and the high-performance Bentley Mulsanne Speed.

So which one of these fine machines you think will serve you better as a personal road yacht? Is it the impeccable but somewhat dull Mercedes-Maybach, or the fairly eccentric but characterful Bentley?

As Jonny clearly showed, with cars like these the tester has to spend a lot of time in the back seat figuring out which one is more comfortable and generally feels better. When you buy a Maybach or a Mulsanne chances are you are going to get a chauffeur as well because you can’t be bothered with the mind0numbing job of driving, especially as you can get some work done when riding in the back. And while that’s OK with the Maybach, as it’s just an S-Class to drive, the Mulsanne Speed has some driver’s car genes in its blood which are frankly wasted because of its intended role. Bentley may have got their priorities mixed with this car.
