Mercedes-Benz has pulled the covers back to reveal its top-shelf Mercedes-Maybach S 600 at the 2015 Motorclassica event in Melbourne, the Australian debut for the uber-luxury sedan.

Announced in May, the Maybach model will sit at the top of Mercedes’ flagship S-Class range in Australia. Designed to take on the likes of Rolls-Royce and Bentley, it comes with the 'full house' of luxury appointments.

As such, the German carmaker certainly isn’t giving its prized model away; prices start at $448,610 plus on-road costs.

The new Maybach however is a relative bargain compared to the $900,000 price of the previous model wearing the same name some years back.

Mercedes says the Maybach “makes automotive luxury come alive by perfecting design and technology down to the last detail”.

There’s no three-cylinder diesel under the bonnet of this elongated sedan, which instead draws its power from a 6.0 litre bi-turbo V12 petrol engine producing 390kW and 830Nm - the latter available from 1900 RPM.

The already-roomy S-Class is stretched by 20cm in both overall length and the wheelbase, ensuring maximum space for the driver and three passengers.

And despite a twelve-cylinder engine under the bonnet, Mercedes says the back seat of the Maybach is the quietest of any production sedan in the world.

Features in the rear include a foot rest for each rear passenger and built-in massagers, along with zoned climate control, fold-out tables, airbags in the seatbelt and seat cushion, leather-lined ceiling and a voice amplification system that allows the rear passenger to be heard in the front row without raising their voice.

Of course, there’s also a Maybach-branded perfume and handcrafted silver-plated champagne flutes.

“Alongside Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach is the second sub-brand in the Mercedes-Benz brand world. Providing both prestige and exclusivity, it is aimed at customers for whom status is important,” Mercedes said.

Mercedes has made something of a tradition out of presenting luxury cars at Motorclassica, with the S-Class Saloon unveiled in 2013 and the S-Class Coupe last year.

The timing of this year’s Maybach S 600 unveiling coincides with the first customer deliveries in Australia.
