In what was probably the most confusing move ever, Mercedes Benz decided to merge two of their brand names, with one of their body style classifications, to name one new car. Yeah…that was confusing enough to explain. This year , the “S-Class” and “Maybach” will merge to become the new Mercedes-Maybach S600.
Priced from USD $189,350, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class seamlessly melds the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the incredible heritage and prestige of the Maybach nameplate. Mercedes-Maybach is not an equipment line. So here’s how they explain it, they’re saying that 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. These vehicles are distinguished by unparalleled interior appointments and extensive individualization options to fulfill the requirements of even the most discerning customers worldwide.
OK…enough of that nonsense. The bottom line, it’s a hell of a car with great design.
