So after somewhat disappointing their fans with the new Maybach S600, which is no different from a top of the line S-Class, Mercedes-Benz now redeems itself by revealing the Mercedes Maybach Pullman. This one’s also too S-Class-like, but at least it’s a full-on limo.
Set for debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the new Mercedes Maybach Pullman is 6.5 liter long – 1053 mm longer than the S600 – and boasts, unsurprisingly, the greatest legroom in the segment. There are two executive class seats with the usual array of features like reclining and massage and what not, plus two other arranged vis-à-vis facing the VIP seats. A window partition divides the passenger compartment from that of the driver.
Talking about the luxuriousness of the Pullman is rather pointless. I mean, it’s a high-end version of the S-Class, itself at the very highest end of the luxury saloons. But it is probably worth mentioning the Pullman comes with the finest leather upholstery known to man, lavish trim pieces, curtains for the rear windows, and a Burmester high-end 3D surround sound system.
Just like the S600, Mercedes Maybach Pullman comes in its range-topping version with a V12 engine developing 530 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque. Prices for unarmoured models start from around half a million Euros; we say around because each car will be subject to endless customization by the owner. Deliveries will begin in early 2016.
