This week saw the grand unveil of the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet, a week ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles motor show. Like most of the top-end cars, this one too comes in a limited edition of 300 units and is expected to set auto- enthusiasts back by a whopping $427,451.
Advertised as “the ultimate in open-air exclusivity”, the Maybach S650 features high-end exterior and interior appointments along with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine under the bonnet, much like the AMG S65. Further, it produces an enormous 463kW of power and 1000Nm of torque. Speaking of aesthetics, the luxury car incorporates a new front bumper, Maybach badging, 20-inch Maybach forged alloy wheels in ‘bi-chromatic’ finish along with puddle lamps and the flashing Maybach logo that comes to life as soon as you open the doors.
Additionally, the interiors boast of a full-leather trimmed look with diamond quilting in the seat side bolsters. However, only three color options will be available in the U.S namely – the Zircon Red with porcelain and black interior and a black top, Cote d’Azur Blue with a porcelain and saddle interior and a beige top, and Designo Diamond White with a porcelain and Yacht Blue interior with a dark blue top. Unsurprisingly, the Maybach logo also adorns the front side of the seats, the back of the head restraints while also finding its way in the cover of the center console. Other features include the Aircap wind deflector, Airscarf neck-level heaters, and Swarovski crystal headlights.
Those who manage to gather enough stash to eventually buy the Maybach S650 will also receive an exclusive Maybach luggage set, diamond-quilted fabric car covers with an embroidered Maybach logo, along with a Nappa leather keyring that matches the vehicle’s interior color. Interested folks should queue up at the nearest dealers soon enough. After all, 300 units of this beauty will only last a short span!
