Luxury on a grand scale
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-072-CCF-D.jpg

Elegance, advanced into a new era.

A Mercedes-Maybach uniquely enriches the experience of travel by automobile. Eight additional inches of wheelbase heighten comfort and lengthen legroom. Its proportions are at once majestic and modern. Its elegantly sculpted lines are set off by 19-inch or 20-inch wheels. Brilliant chrome adds radiance to its grille and side windows.

A handcrafted haven

Craftsmanship, raised to a higher order.

The spacious cabin is resplendent in its display of handcraftsmanship. Extraordinarily supple Exclusive Nappa leather is hand-stitched throughout the cabin, not only on the seats but also the dashboard, ceiling and pillars. A pair of matching diamond-stitched leather throw pillows show that no detail has been overlooked.

The finest in every detail

Refinement, with every choice a top choice.

Beyond its extensive fittings of Exclusive leather, the Mercedes-Maybach S600 cabin exudes quality other automobiles have long forgotten. Satin aluminum controls and impossibly precise topstitching are among the sensory rewards. Six choices in hand-finished wood include exotic Metallized Ash and Black Piano Lacquer in a "Flowing Lines" motif.

Something for every sense

Unparalleled, for the ultimate in traveling comfort.

Unsurpassed luxury comes from a spacious rear cabin that's thoughtful in every detail. The ionized cabin air can be infused with aromatherapy. The armrests are heated. The power rear seats can offer a "hot stone" massage, folding tables, and power calf rests. You can even sip chilled champagne from a pair of bespoke silver flutes.


Technology

Digital tech, a human touch
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-080-CCF-D.jpg

Responds to your touch, without lifting a finger.

Dual 12.3-inch high-resolution screens combine the clarity of analog instruments with lifelike animated displays of driving systems, settings, entertainment and navigation. An intuitive touchpad makes the advanced COMAND® system feel quickly like second nature. And with Mercedes-Benz mbrace®, the Internet and WiFi are integrated with the car.

First-class entertainment

Front-row seats, even in the rear cabin.

Burmester®, Germany's revered handcrafter of high-end home audio, has created a High-End 3D Surround Sound System that sets an industry standard in automotive audio. The rear-cabin entertainment systems include individual high-resolution screens, high-quality headsets, and wireless remotes that also control a variety of comfort features.

From panoramas to privacy
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-082-CCF-D.jpg

The sun and the stars, or shade and seclusion.

The standard Panorama roof lets every passenger travel under a blanket of stars or bask in the sunshine. Or you can keep the outside world out, with a variety of power-operated shades for the heat-rejecting glass roof and all of the rear windows. The exclusive option of MAGIC SKY CONTROL® even lets you darken the glass roof electrically.

100% LED lighting
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-081-CCF-D.jpg

Enlightened, without a single lightbulb.

More than 500 advanced LEDs provide every exterior and interior lighting function. Active full-LED headlamps instantly adapt to darkness, curving roadways and oncoming nighttime traffic. In the cabin, a vast network of LEDs and fiber-optics provides both illumination and inspiration, with seven selectable colors and multiple adjustable zones.


Performance

Biturbo engines

Instant response, seamless refinement.

Two biturbo engines, a 449-hp V8 or a 523-hp V12, unleash a torrent of torque. Paired with a 7-speed automatic in the V12 S600 or a new 9-speed in the V8 S550, acceleration is seamless. Whether merging into traffic or passing on a highway, response is immediate. An with ECO Start/Stop and other advances, their performance is also efficient.

A new age of driving comfort
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-079-CCF-D.jpg

Reads the road, bypasses the bumps.

No matter which Mercedes-Maybach you choose, its suspension offers a choice of modes, adaptive damping and automatic leveling. The S550 4MATIC tames the road with lightweight, quick-thinking AIRMATIC®. On the S600, camera-assisted MAGIC BODY CONTROL® is an industry first. It can actually see bumps ahead, and act to quell them in real time.

The confidence of 4MATIC
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-085-CCF-D.jpg

Elegance in every move, and every season.

The new Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC features advanced all-wheel drive that continually sends the V8's ample torque to the wheels that can best turn it into traction. Lightweight, nimble and efficient, 4MATIC® enhances handling and performance in any season, enhancing agility in dry corners and imparting a quiet confidence on slippery roads.

No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.

Visionary driving convenience
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-077-CCF-D.jpg

Eyes on the road, and a hand with the driving.

The visionary innovations of Intelligent Drive help to smooth every move. DISTRONIC PLUS® pairs adaptive cruise control with a steering assist feature that watches the lane markings. The Surround View System offers a 360-degree birdseye view around your car. A Mercedes-Maybach can even park itself, almost like having an onboard valet.

DISTRONIC adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system's alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Operator's Manual for system's operating speeds and additional information and warnings..

The safety of Intelligent Drive
2016-S-CLASS-MAYBACH-078-CCF-D.jpg

Responds to danger, before you're in it.

Advanced radar- and camera-based technologies enhance safety and reduce driving stress. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can brake to avoid a collision autonomously. PRE-SAFE® PLUS helps prepare you for front, rear and rollover accidents. Its Intelligent Drive systems even watch out for pedestrians and cross-traffic in your path.

COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system's alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
