In 2015, Mercedes brought back the Maybach name as a sub-brand of the Mercedes lineup, representing advanced luxury. The first model produced was the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The Mercedes-Maybach is available as S 500 and S 600 models. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 is also available in a Pullman version, a chauffeur-driven sedan which includes a partition-separated ultra-luxurious rear passenger compartment with two sets of paired facing seats. This version is equipped with the V12 dual-turbocharger gasoline engine, the seven-speed automatic transmission, and rear-wheel drive. The same vehicle is additionally available as an armored version, known as the Pullman Guard.
Measuring over 21 feet from nose to tail, the Pullman limousine is more than 41 inches longer than an already lengthy Mercedes-Maybach sedan. It is even 20-plus inches longer than the longest Rolls-Royce. Visually, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Pullman features a redesigned grille with slim, vertical bars said to be inspired by the pinstripes of a fine Savile Row suit. Inside the newest Pullman, the so-called vis-à-vis seating arrangement continues, with two forward-facing, business-jet-style reclining seats and two rear-facing jump seats. the S650 Pullman is loaded to its raised roof with equipment. One new feature of the model is a front-mounted camera that, when the partition is up, displays the road ahead to the passengers via the monitor. Mercedes-Maybach Pullman comes with the latest hand-built Mercedes-Benz 6-liter, twin-turbocharged V-12. With 621 hp and an impressive 738 ft-lbs. of torque on tap, it launches the leviathan from standstill to 62 mph in just 6.5 seconds. According to Mercedes, pricing for the new S650 Pullman "starts at around half a million euro", that would be about $615,000, it will actually be much higher once buyers finish adding options and any custom requests to their orders.
