Mercedes-Maybach is presenting the “Edition 100” to mark its 100th anniversary with a special edition of the current S-Class. The special edition will be available in the U.S. in the first half of 2022. “What is good must also be beautiful.” This was the credo of Wilhelm and Karl Maybach at the beginning of the 20th century. Father and son were regarded as gifted designers, trailblazers of automotive luxury and pioneers in matters of style. With a simple-sounding formula, they created highly complex things: perfection and craftsmanship paired with innovation, both technically and in terms of workmanship. This is what the name Maybach stands for to this day. The Mercedes-Maybach brand continues to develop, with more models – soon also electric. At the IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich, Mercedes-Maybach presented the “Concept EQS” and thus gave a preview of the first fully electric series model from 2023. The SUV will be based on the modular architecture for luxury – and premium-class electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz. In Europe, orders will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 and sales at the beginning of 2022. The U.S. market will only get the sedan version with sales to begin in the first half of 2022.
Wilhelm Maybach, born in 1846, was a close companion of Gottlieb Daimler and initially worked for Daimler- Motoren-Gesellschaft. Among many innovations, he developed the first Mercedes, which dominated the Nice Race Week in 1901. This success earned him the honorary name “Roi des Constructeurs” – King of the Constructors. He and his eldest son Karl combined progress with form: they wanted to create “the best of the best”. Maybach Motorenbau GmbH presented the first mass-produced car at the motor show in Berlin in September 1921. The W 3 model resembled a moving work of art: the first German production car with four-wheel brakes, epicyclic gear system and an interior with the finest materials. In the 1920s and 1930s, Maybach became an expression of character and social position, and the epitome of technical and craftsmanship refinement – in short, custom-made luxury. After the death of Karl Maybach in 1960, Daimler-Benz AG took over Maybach Motorenbau GmbH.
In 2002, MAYBACH was revived as an independent brand: until the beginning of 2013, legendary vehicles like the Maybach 57 and Maybach 62 as well as the Maybach 62 Landaulet were delivered to customers all over the world. Again, automotive excellence was the driving force for engineers, designers and customers alike. Mercedes-Maybach has been a Mercedes-Benz brand since 2014. In addition to the standard Mercedes- Maybach S-Class and GLS models, the brand is also launching the S 600 Pullman as well as limited-edition special models such as the S 650 Cabriolet or a G 650 Landaulet. The core markets are China, Russia, South Korea, the USA and Germany. Each model follows the brand’s tradition of creating the “best of the best” and is made in consultation with customers at the Center of Excellence in Sindelfingen near Stuttgart. On request, the vehicles can also be individualized by the specialists in the Mercedes-Maybach MANUFAKTUR program: craftsmanship and perfection at the highest level.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class with a V12 engine capable of producing 621 hp is the perfect luxury sedan. Equipment highlights include the noise-insulated first-class rear compartment with Burmester 4D surround sound system, heat and massage functions for the seats and high-tech screens for infotainment. Compared to the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class, the model has a 7-inch (18 cm) longer wheelbase and is equipped with all-wheel drive for the first time. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is now being celebrated in the most beautiful way in a refined “Edition 100” limited to 100 units worldwide: characteristic Maybach hallmarks such as the impressive radiator grille bear the brand emblem. The S-Class is hand-painted in two-tone Cirrus Silver/Nautical Blue and features a special design of leather interior in MANUFAKTUR Crystal White/Silver Grey Pearl. The brand logo including the inscription “Edition 100” adorns the C-pillar, various stowage compartments and the illuminated panels in the interior. The “Edition 100” lettering also adorns the hub caps. The wheels also shine in a new grey finish. A car cover with the iconic double M as well as a fine handmade case made of soft crystal white or black leather in file size – made to store keys and papers – further underline the exclusivity of the edition.
