A 6.0 Liter, V12 Bi-turbo lies under the hood of this rare, German luxury Cabriolet.
The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is the brands first-ever cabriolet. Adopting the body style from its parent company’s, Mercedes-Benz S Class Cabriolet, Maybach adds its own personal touches to the mix. One should not expect to see too many, as only 300 cabrios will be made, with 75 destined for the USA.
The most notable appointments to the Cabriolet are on the exterior and interior. Mercedes-Maybach, formerly Maybach, is known for providing their clientele with the utmost of luxury and exclusivity in their vehicles. Embracing this, the S650 Cabriolet will only be available in three configurations for the US market. One can opt for either a Zircon Red exterior with Porcelain/Black interior and soft-top; Cote d’Azur Blue exterior with Porcelain/Saddle Brown interior and beige soft-top; or, designo Diamond White exterior with Porcelain/Yacht Blue interior and dark blue soft-top. Subtle changes to the bumpers, the addition of chrome, “Maybach” badging and exclusive 20″ Maybach Forged wheels further differentiates this model from the rest.
The Maybach S650 Cabriolet comes standard with a luggage set, exclusively from Maybach, made out of the same leather as the interior and following the same colour theme as the vehicle itself. Inside, the designers aimed to create a yacht-like ambience. Seats are a combination of “flowing lines” and diamond quilting, and made of the highest quality leather. The trim is made exclusivesly for each vehicle based on the selected color and grain and crafted to give a three-dimensional look. So one doesn’t forget, Mercedes-Maybach logos are embossed throughout the cabin and on the lower part of the steering wheel.
To move this land yacht, the S650 Cabriolet is powered by a 6.0 liter, V12 bi-turbo engine with an output of 621 hp and a whopping 738lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is paired to a Mercedes-Benz 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission, and the body rides on the brands AIRMATIC suspension that features variable damping control.
The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is an expression of luxury and exclusivity.
