Mercedes Benz Maybach S500 4.5L Twin Turbo (2017)

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach is the ultimate of the ultimate, and it is the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class. Rich leather upholstery, replete with beautiful decorative perforations and stitching, resides everywhere the hand falls and seemingly stretches from floor to ceiling. The steering is fairly light, and with lane keeping assist and/or Distronic Plus (Advanced radar sensors vigilantly scanning traffic ahead) cruise control activated, it could even subtly steer the car for you. This quite obviously isn't a sporty car, but it can be surprisong at how adeptly this very large sedan can hunker down and go around a corner.

The standard equipment list includes a chrome twin exhaust system, LED headlights, a sliding panoramic sunroof, key-less entry and go, run-flat tyres, tinted rear windows and a 360-degree camera system on the outside. A pair of massive, 12.3-inch widescreen displays appear to float in their mounts, with one acting as a gauge cluster and the other keeping tabs on infotainment functions and advanced vehicle settings. At night, driver-adjustable multi-color lighting bathes the cabin in a soothing glow.

The rear seats are the place to be, with pampering accommodations that wouldn't be out of place in a custom-outfitted Gulfstream. There's abundant room to stretch out, and with the rear center console, it's easy for a pair of occupants to get work done on the optional foldout tray tables or watch a movie using the twin rear screens. With the seats' power recline function and pop-out calf support and footrest, it's also possible to catch a few Z's or indulge in a quick "hot stone" massage en route to your next appointment.

At the front, all of the Maybach's many vehicle functions are controlled by the latest iteration of the Mercedes COMAND system. It is quite easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things to control on the car. As a result, it takes a long time to familiarize yourself with everything even on a drive including the redundant control setup of a traditional knob controller and a more modern capacitive touch-pad. You can essentially use whichever you prefer.

Besides the typical airbags and traction aids, Mercedes-Benz Maybach comes with a driver knee airbag, front side pelvic airbags, rear side airbags, rear cushion airbags that prevent submarining under your seat belt, rear-seat belt airbags, a forward collision warning and automatic braking system (detects cars and pedestrians), a rear collision detection and mitigation system, a drowsy driver warning system, active lane-keeping and blind-spot assistance, front and rear cross-traffic alert. Also included is free trial of Mbrace Secure emergency services, which includes automatic collision and alarm notification, stolen vehicle locator and an emergency call button.

The car also comes standard with ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and can modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. Anti-whiplash head restraints actively react to rear collision forces and craddle the occupants head in an effort to reduce the likelihood of a whiplash injury. The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that will prevent the engine from starting if the correct original manufacturer key is not used.

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach S500 is a classy looking sedan boasts of world class interior furnishings made out of quality leather cover for the seats, wood paneling for the dashboard and chrome inserts in the instrument panel. The interior of this car is furnished with Napa upholstery to give it an elegant look. The seats are electrically controlled and come with Lumbar support. Additionally, it has an automatic climate control system, inside rear view mirror with anti dazzle function, floor mats, bottle and cup holders.

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach S500 sedan is equipped with a powerful 4.5 liters V type TwinPower Turbo 8 cylinders with 32 valves gasoline engine that can provide a massive power of 455 hp. This powerful gasoline engine is mated to a 9 speed automatic gearbox.
