Mercedes-Maybach S560 and S650 launched at the 2018 Auto Expo, prices start from Rs. 1.94 crores.
Mercedes-Maybach has launched the S560 and S650 saloon at the ongoing 2018 Auto Expo at Rs. 1.94 crores and Rs. 2.73 crores respectively, both prices (ex-showroom). The limousines will sit at the top of the German carmaker’s portfolio alongside the S-Class AMG offerings and aim at being an even better ‘Best Car In The World’. Based on the facelifted S-Class, the S560 and S650 get tweaks to the front fascia in the form of a revised grille, bumper and the new tri-split LED headlights. The LED tail-lights and bumper also get minor tweaks while the double M badges are found on the car, as usual.
Since both the cars will be primarily chauffeur-driven, they get a long wheelbase, handcrafted cabin and a host of other exclusive features. Some of them worth mentioning are ‘Magic Roof’ with embedded lights that mimic a night sky (as seen in some Rolls Royce cars), executive rear seats with multiple adjustments for the backrest, height and the seat angle. They are ventilated and also get massage function.
The S560 draws power from a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged, V8 petrol engine producing 469 PS of power and 700 Nm of torque while the costlier S650 comes powered by a mammoth 6.0-litre, V12, bi-turbo petrol motor that is hand-built. The powertrain produces 630 PS of power and 1000 Nm of torque!
