Once again, the Hamptons served as the weekend playground for our Mercedes-Maybach, reaffirming its status as the preferred choice for the fortunate few who believe they possess everything. Our test model, adorned in the MANUFAKTUR Cashmere White Magno exterior color, exudes an exquisite blend of sublime beauty, refinement, and meticulously crafted sophistication. The elegant wheels further enhance this luxurious combination.
Introducing the latest iteration of the exceptionally exclusive Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4MATIC Sedan. Boasting unparalleled power and performance, this all-new model is equipped with a handcrafted 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine, establishing itself as the most potent member of the Mercedes-Maybach lineup. It generates an impressive 621 hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just over 4 seconds. Additionally, the S 680 4MATIC features a 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system for the first time, ensuring readiness for winter conditions.
As you step inside, indulge in the luxury of the interior adorned with Napa Leather finishes. From the headliner to the dashboard, instrument panel surrounds, armrests, glovebox, window frames, pillars, sun visors, backrest pockets, and door sill panel inserts—every detail exudes luxury. The rear passengers’ seats are adorned with two rest cushions featuring diamond quilting, contrast piping, and the distinguished Mercedes-Maybach emblem. The design backrest trim in wood, diamond stitching on the seats, Maybach pedal cluster, and Maybach-specific scent contribute to the lavish ambiance. Adding to the convenience, the driver can control the rear doors, effortlessly opening and closing even on gradients.
Founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and his son Karl Maybach, Mercedes-Maybach represents the manifestation of sophisticated luxury in its most advanced form and this new-generation Mercedes-Maybach S-Class sits at a level all on its own.
