Mercedes-Benz has begun dropping breadcrumbs in the lead up to this week's LA Auto Show, where it will reveal its most luxurious convertible ever, the Mercedes-Maybach interpretation of the S-Class Cabriolet.
Though the standard S-Class convertible is already opulent, the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 will go even further, with a plush interior and unique Maybach styling touches including unique wheels, additional chrome trim up front, and a unique chrome-plated mesh grille.
Unlike the Mercedes-Maybach sedan range, which is available as a ‘regular’ model with an open-ended production run, the Maybach S 650 teaser video shows a “1 of 300” embossing in the car’s centre console trim, indicating that the S 650 will be offered in purely limited numbers.
The Maybach limo range also runs on a uniquely longer wheelbase compared with the maintsream Mercedes-Benz S-Class (even the long wheelbase configuration), but for the S 650 key exterior dimensions will be shared with the regular S Class convertible.
Similarly, the S 650’s V12 will be closely related to the V12 engines used in other S-Class variants, but the S 650 designation indicates that the Maybach version could run beyond the 390kW/830Nm output of the S 600 and sit closer the the Mercedes-AMG S 65’s 463kW/1000Nm outputs.
Full details of the Mercedes-Maybach S 650’s bespoke trim, audio systems, and interior fittings, as teased in the video (below) will be revealed at the LA Auto Show on November 16th.
