Celebrating its centenary, Maybach continues its journey to maximum individuality and releases S-Class and GLS models specifically dedicated to this anniversary - in just 100 copies each. The Edition 100 will be available for booking from the last quarter of this year, but delivery will begin in early 2022.
Maybach presented itself as the luxury equivalent in 1921 at the IAA, Berlin Motor Show. And since then it has not left its place on the pedestal for a moment. On the contrary, with each new model, it constantly renews the understanding of the possibilities offered by comfort, design and technology. And experts appreciate it.
The top-class GLS SUV with a V8 engine and 557 hpcombines a sporty appearance with the luxury of a saloon: it is 33 centimetres higher than the classic saloon, offers a uniquely generous interior with 1.10 metres of legroom and air suspension. The interior is soundproofed and adorned with the finest leather. Electrically extendable running boards ensure maximum comfort when getting in and out.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class luxury saloon with a V12 engine and 612 hp is the perfect chauffeur-driven saloon. Equipment highlights include the noise-insulated first-class rear compartment with Burmester 4D surround sound system, heat and massage functions for the seats and high-tech screens for infotainment. Compared to the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class, the model has an 18 centimetre longer wheelbase and is equipped with all-wheel drive for the first time.
Both models are now being celebrated in the most beautiful way in a refined "Edition 100" limited to 100 units each: characteristic Maybach hallmarks such as the impressive radiator grille bear the brand emblem. The S-Class and GLS are hand-painted in the same two tones – high-tech silver/nautical blue - and feature a special design of leather interior in designo crystal white/silver grey pearl.
The brand logo including the inscription "Edition 100" adorns the C-pillar (S-Class) or D-pillar (GLS), various stowage compartments and the illuminated panels in the interior. The "Edition 100" lettering also adorns the hub caps. The forged wheels of the GLS and the wheels of the S-Class also shine in a new grey finish.
A car cover with the iconic double M as well as a fine handmade case made of soft crystal white or black leather in file size - made to store keys and papers - further underline the exclusivity of the edition. In keeping with the anniversary edition, Mercedes-Maybach's long-standing partners are also designing strictly limited special series: Licensing partner Maybach Icons of Luxury, for example, offers a diamond-studded fountain pen from the Maybach the Peak collection; the silver and yacht manufacturer Robbe & Berking offers a champagne flute with a specially created engraving.
The anniversary year will also see the premiere of a special series of a champagne flute from the silver manufacturer Robbe & Berking. It features the raised Maybach logo on the base and the fine engraving of the Maybach "100 Years" logo. With great care, the Flensburgers also create matching water or long drink tumblers for connoisseurs and lovers of classics. Not only for Mercedes-Maybach owners.
