Mercedes-Maybach’s second model will assume the top-of-the-range position, with vis-à-vis seating in the passenger compartment and high-end automotive luxury that is traditionally associated with Maybach.
Its length of 6.5 metres alone is a sign of the special status of the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman as it provides space for a generously-sized and tastefully-appointed club lounge in the rear, which has a multitude of creature comforts fitted as standard.
This chauffeur-driven limousine is more than equal to today’s demands for the ultimate in exclusivity and luxury. The VIP occupants sit on two standard-specification executive seats facing the direction of travel. They can enjoy the greatest legroom in the segment; and can get into and out of the car with the greatest of ease and comfort. As is typical for a Pullman, the four passengers can sit facing each other in the compartment with an electrically-operated partition window.
The prices for unarmoured models start at around half a million euros… wait what? Unarmoured? Who is this limo being aimed at exactly? Dictators? Oligarchs?
“Quite apart from providing stately and stylish seating for high-ranking passengers in the comfort and spaciousness for which it is famed, the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is of course the embodiment of exclusivity at its highest level,” commented Ola Källenius, Member of the Daimler AG Management Board responsible for sales and marketing of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “One can sense the significance and greatness of it in every detail.”
So its got that going for it at least.Manufacturer Profile Latest Car News
