Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Teased As The Ultimate Luxury Sedan

Teaser / Comments

But will it have a V12 under the hood?

Revealed just two months ago, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is among the most luxurious and technologically advanced vehicles on the market. The standard S-Class uses either a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 429 horsepower or a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 496 hp and there is also a hybrid version producing a combined 510 hp. As we well expected though, the hybrid won't remain the most powerful S-Class for long, as the company just teased a new Maybach variant.

The digital premiere of the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class takes place on November 19, 2020, just a few days from now. In anticipation of the reveal, Mercedes released a single teaser image of the new car along with the timing of the event.

The teaser doesn't give much away, but it shows that the Maybach S-Class will be available with a two-tone paint scheme, like most Maybach-branded products. It will also wear a Maybach emblem on the C-pillar, another signature Maybach trait. Aside from the image, Mercedes only provide a few small tidbits of information about the car.

The Maybach variant will be eight centimeters (3.15 inches) longer than the standard S-Class, most of which will benefit rear-seat passengers. Maybach will include standard executive seats and a chauffeur package, turning the rear area into a comfortable workplace or a calming retreat. The rear seats even come with new luxury features, such as a massage function in the calf rests and heating for the neck and shoulders. Customers can also expect plenty of wood materials and nicer leather than the standard S-Class.

As for what will sit under the hood, the previous Maybach S-Class used a 6.0-liter V12 generating 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes seemingly moved away from V12 engines when it announced the V8-powered GLS Maybach, but the company still hasn't ruled it out for the S-Class. If this car doesn't receive a V12, we'd expect to see a tuned version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, producing at least 600 hp.
