The exclusive Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is an uber-luxurious German yacht that is ready to set sail at your beck and call.
Do you find the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Cabriolet a bit under-priced? Well, it’s time to rejoice because the folks at Maybach are here to save the day. Introducing the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet – only 300 will be made and each would be bespoke and built to its customers taste. Now a normal person at this point would wonder why to pay the extra £100k for the Maybach Cabriolet. Let’s look at the updates for a better understanding.
The Maybach gets a new front bumper with updated chrome highlights and a larger intake area. The car is festooned with chrome, and features tits and bits across the entire silhouette. The legendary Maybach double M logo garnishes the rear deck. The “bichromatic” 20inch forged wheels are unmistakably Maybach and add a stately and sophisticated touch to the S650.
Powering this luxurious behemoth of a car is the same 6.0-Litre Bi-turbo V12 that produces 625 HP and colossal 1000 Nm of torque. This should whisk the yacht from 0-100kph in 4.1 seconds and onto a limited top whack of 250 kph. But performance isn’t really the forte of this luxurious cabriolet. Granted it’s properly quick, but most of the magic starts once you step inside.
The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is a paradise of leather and bespoke crafted parts. The interior on the show car featured a stunning beige colour trim with diamond quilted leather seats that look like opulent wing tipped sofas. The progressive perforations and the waterfall like seat upholstery are fabulous to behold. The S650 gets most of the S65 optional extras as standard.
What’s more, since this is a Maybach, each car is uniquely commissioned and designed based on the customer’s choice; basically, no two cars would be the same. The seat upholstery also gets the Maybach logo etched into the leather. Precious wood veneer garnishes the front fascia to give a stunning backdrop to the dashboard. There’s also a Maybach inlaid logo on the soft top compartment. All part of the German luxury theatrics.
The new Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is overly luxurious for the real world. It’s the sort of car you’d take to the exclusive yacht club you belong to in Monte Carlo. Is it really worth the extra over the “standard” S65 Cabriolet though? We can’t be too sure. What are your thoughts on this fabulous bar of luxury?
