Maybach is back, and in a more attainable form than ever -- though the new S600 is still plenty exclusive.
This is it, the 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600. It's a stretched version of the existing S-Class, with some serious augmentation where it counts: the interior.
Still, the exterior looks the part, with a massive, chrome grille up front.
Behind that grille is a twin-turbo, 6.0-liter V12 putting down 523 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque.
The interior is opulent from all angles, with leather on virtually every surface and an almost complete lack of plastics.
The center console uses Mercedes' latest COMAND system.
The controller is located between the front seats, but using an app the owner of the car can control virtually the entire interior from the back seat.
And here it is, the most important seat in the car. It reclines fully, has a desk that pops out of the center console and is very, very comfortable.
From the rear, you can see the cutout window in the C-pillar, a defining visual element of this new model.
Sweeping LED taillights.
And massive chrome wheels covering similarly large, cross-drilled brakes. It's quite a package, and it's coming in the spring of 2016. No pricing has been announced, but expect it to start somewhere around $200,000 in the US.
