Limited edition Maybach-AMG creation is numbered to just 300 models

When Mercedes officially revived the Maybach brand in 2015, it had a clear idea of what it wanted the brand to project. Sure, it was already associated with the top-quality luxury, but Mercedes also wanted to blend all that opulence with the kind of power and performance that’s more linked to its AMG division. All of that brings us to this high-rolling cabriolet that’s part Maybach, part AMG. It’s called the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet, and it’s a legitimate boss on four wheels.

It’s a different use of the word “hybrid” but Mercedes was able to accomplish this marriage by using a soft-top Mercedes-AMG S 65 and then bombarding its cabin with the finest materials and special finishes it has to offer. The result is a car that showcases the luxury refinement of Maybach with the performance credentials of AMG.

It’s worth noting too that Mercedes didn’t even have to extend the base AMG S 65 past its usual length to accommodate the extended nature of its Maybach models. The Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet retains the same wheelbase as the model with it’s based on, not to mention having that other important element of the AMG S 65: the 6.0-liter bi-turbo V-12 engine that produces 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to power to help the cabriolet sprint from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds to go with an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.

At the very least, those numbers help complement the litany of luxury upgrades given to the car’s interior. Without jumping to the specifics, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet comes with a leather-covered cabin with outer diamond quitting on the seat side bolsters. There’s also element of bespoke trim scattered throughout the cabin, most notably on the door panels and instrument panel. And, let’s not forget the color-coordinated luggage set. Nothing spells out exclusivity more than having extra luggages to go with the actual car.

All of this adds up to one of the most exclusive models Mercedes will be offering under the reintroduced Maybach line. Only 300 units will be made available with each model being given a specific number among the 300 models. High-rollers, anyone?

I’m not even going to pretend that I have a chance of owning any one of the 300 Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolets that Mercedes is going to sell to the public. That’s not happening, not in this lifetime, the next, or any of the other succeeding ones.

But, for those who have the wealth to get them - hey there, Floyd Mayweather Jr.! - I can’t imagine the kind of conversations they’ll be having with their Mercedes-Maybach dealers about the cars. Too much leather, perhaps? Not enough crystal glasses? Those are conversations for the rich and famous and they’re likely to come up when in the presence of a car like this.

It is important to highlight that of the 300 units that Mercedes will be building, only 75 will come to the US and each of the 75 will be available with a choice of three liveries: Zircon Red paint with Porcelain / Black interior, Cote d’Azur Blue paint with Porcelain / Saddle Brown interior, and Designo Diamond White paint with Porcelain / Yacht Blue Interior. Fancy colors for a fancy car.

So if anybody out there is interested in the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet, here’s a piece of advice for you: prepare to pay a premium for them because each model commands a price tag of $247,900.
