If the price of the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class for the Philippines shocked you, we can only imagine what you'd feel about the new limited edition Maybach S-Class.
This is the new Maybach S-Class Edition 100, and it's the most opulent variant of the luxury sedan yet. The limited-run S-Class Edition 100 is based on the range-topping V12 model with 612 horsepower under the hood and all-wheel drive. The sedan is also hand-painted in a beautiful two-tone shade of Cirrus Silver / Nautical Blue. To truly set it apart from the “standard” model, the automaker fit bespoke wheels with a gray finish. There are also Edtion 100 badges that adorn the C-pillar and hub caps. Customers who order a unit even get an exclusive car cover.
Inside, it's very much what you'd expect from a Maybach S-Class. But in the Edition 100, the cabin comes with leather upholstery in Crystal White with Silver Gray Pearl. There are also more “Edition 100” inscriptions on various stowage compartments and illuminated panels. Other features include a “noise-insulated first-class rear compartment”, a Burmester 4D surround sound system, and even seats with heating and massage functions.
What makes the Maybach Maybach S-Class Edition 100 special is that it celebrates the Maybach brand's 100th anniversary since its first production vehicle debuted in September 1921. As its name implies, only 100 units will be made globally.
Mercedes-Benz didn't reveal how much the limited-run luxury sedan will cost. But considering the price of the standard S-Class and even the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models, it'll be anything but affordable. Heck, it might even make the PHP 17 million S-Class AMG Line look like a bargain.
