No, this one is not headed for India, at least for the time
being. The new Mercedes-Maybach S600 will be available from April 2015 onward
in the US for prices starting at $ 189,350 (Rs 1.17 crore approx.). This car is
longer--more than 8 inches in total length when compared to the standard
S-Class and features a suite of intelligent safety technologies and exclusive
appointments that complete the opulent package.
Please do remember that the Mercedes-Maybach is not an
equipment line. It is a sub-brand that
introduces Mercedes-Benz vehicles in an even more exclusive form. Alongside
Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach becomes the second sub-brand for Mercedes-Benz that
was created for customers who demand the absolute best. Can imagine this set of customers? They would
be definitely uber rich and extremely choosy about their products. These
vehicles are distinguished by unparalleled interior appointments and extensive
individualisation options to fulfill the requirements of even the most
discerning customers worldwide.
The car is fitted with a powerful V12 bi-turbo engine that has
an output of 523 hp. With a displacement of 5980 cc, the maximum torque of around
830 Nm is available from 1900 rpm. Inside the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the
level of wind noise is extraordinarily low and even surpasses levels found in
the quietest car in the world – the S-Class Coupe. In fact, for rear seat
passengers, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is the world's quietest production
sedan. So whether you talk to your mistress, your wife or your girlfriend, you
can be assured of absolute silence within the car and you can hear her lovely
voice crispy clear!
Standard equipment includes a Driver Assistance Package
(Intelligent Drive), Magic Body Control, Night View Assist Plus, a Warmth and
Comfort Package with a heated windshield, Head-Up Display, LED Intelligent
Lighting System, Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound System, Executive Rear
Seat Package, Rear Seat Entertainment System and the Air Balance Package.
This will find its way into India at some stage and with the
kind of wealthy Indians mushrooming like flowers in a valley, it’s bound to get
its share of buyers here too.
