In the corners you’ll find large 20-inch wheels, which, on any other car, would look enormous. However, on the Merc, the rollers looks just right.

In case you were unaware, the 2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is a true chauffeur-driven limousine model. Viewed head on, it looks like a traditional S-Class, but take one step to the side, and you’ll discover this thing is stretched out to an impressive 6.5 meters (21.3 feet) in length.

New for the 2018 model year, the Pullman gets an updated radiator grille insert with polished vertical slats. Merc says the grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit, and the aesthetic was fist previewed in the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept coupe that dropped back in 2016.

In the corners you’ll find large 20-inch wheels, which, on any other car, would look enormous. However, on the Merc, the rollers looks just right, especially with their broad 10-hole design, something that’s characteristic of the Mercedes-Maybach brand.

Outside, the paint hues can be had with the same two-tone finishes seen on the non-limo’d Maybach S-Class. Customization options are plentiful here if you wanna mix it up even further.

Step into the cabin, and you’ll find a “club lounge” layout that’s on par with the finest luxury hotels out there.

There’s also new color combinations for the interior appointment, including magma grey, mahogany brown, and a silk beige/deep sea blue.

Step into the cabin, and you’ll find a “club lounge” layout that’s on par with the finest luxury hotels out there, and as many as four passengers will find accommodations. There are several standard features that make the Pullman a beacon of comfort and opulence, including twin executive forward-facing seats. The leather upholstery gets a quilted finish, as well as massage functions, heating and ventilation, and a rising foot rest as well.

There’s also an electrically operated partition screen that separates the driver from the rear seating area. Interestingly, Mercedes added a new front-view camera that allows those in the back to watch the traffic status even when the partition is closed.

Finally, there’s a “2 cabin sound” feature for the stereo, with independent controls added for the front and rear passengers, thus allowing for a custom music selection depending on where you’re seated.

And of course we can’t forget the twin-turbo V-12 under the hood. This lump makes as much as 621 velvety-smooth horses, which is quite a lot of muscle, but considering this thing is about as heavy as a battleship, it still takes as much as 6.5 seconds for it to reach 60 mph.

Pricing for all this luxury starts at roughly half a million euros. Order books are open now.

Press release

Mercedes-Maybach stands for the ultimate in exclusivity and individuality. The absolute top-of-the range model from the luxury brand is the Pullman (fuel consumption combined: 14.6 l/100 km; combined CO2emissions: 330 g/km) with vis-à-vis seating behind the partition screen. Now the high-end luxury class from Mercedes-Benz is becoming even more exquisite. A new radiator grille and new exclusive colour combinations in the interior make for a new appearance. The longest model from the S-Class family with a length of 6.50 metres can be ordered starting on 15 March.

A reinterpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. It celebrated its world première in the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, the exclusive coupé concept car which thrilled connoisseurs and fans of the brand in 2016. The exterior appearance of the top-of-the-range model is rounded off by the 20-inch wheel in 10-hole design known from the Mercedes-Maybach. For an even more individual appearance, the range of paint finishes by customer demand now also includes the two-tone paint finishes presented with the Mercedes-Maybach S‑Class. The new exclusive colours magma grey, mahogany brown and silk beige/deep sea blue are available in the interior.

Its length of 6.50 metres alone is a sign of the special status of the Mercedes‑Maybach Pullman. It provides space for a generously sized and tastefully appointed club lounge in the rear, with a multitude of creature comforts fitted as standard, thereby ensuring the chauffeur-driven limousine lives up to today’s expectations of what constitutes maximum exclusivity and luxury. The VIP occupants sit on two standard-specification executive seats facing the direction of travel. They can enjoy the largest legroom in the segment; and can get in and out of the car with the greatest of ease and comfort. As is typical for a Pullman, the four passengers can sit facing each other in the compartment with an electrically operated partition. Also new for the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is a front view camera. Rear passengers are thus able to monitor the traffic in front of the vehicle even when the partition screen is closed.

The "2 cabin sound” feature of the sound system offers more exclusivity than ever before. Thanks to independent control for the front and rear passenger compartment, the occupants of the Pullman enjoy even more personalised music. The price of the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman starts at around half a million euro.
