2012 Maybach 57S Edition 125: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 16, 2011

Maybach has taken the wraps off its new Edition 125! one-off anniversary car at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany. Like its name clearly indicates, this Maybach special vehicle celebrates the luxury carmaker’s 125th anniversary and in honor of automotive designer Wilhelm Maybach.

This new Edition 125! explores individualization options for the brand’s high-end saloons. It boasts of contour lighting as well as a laser-engraved light motif, with the double-M in the front armrest, which represents the double-M in a curved triangle as illuminated from inside.

The Maybach Edition 125! Is an example of how the brand has been expanding its portfolio of high-quality optional equipment and appointments. For instance, the anniversary car is finished in Maybach’s newly created special colors Tahiti Black/ Patagonia Silver. It is also specified with a glove compartment lid embroidered with the signature of Wilhelm Maybach, trim in silver carbon fibre/black piano lacquer as well as silver-colored topstitching.

The one-off car also features a newly styled radiator grille as well as matt black 20-inch wheels with high-sheen spokes. Maybach’s new aggressive chrome radiator grille should further boost the superb and radiant appearance of the brand’s current high-end saloons. This arrow-shaped radiator grille is available in two variants: the first version features 20 longitudinal bars as seen in the Maybach 57 and 62 models; while the second version has 12 solid double louvres and a “shadow strut,” as seen in the Maybach 57 S and 62 S. Likewise, both versions of the grille have greater dimensions and are placed higher, with a more upright position.

Its modified bonnet – now with sharply defined contours – has been elevated. Featuring a contoured edge, the bonnet now looks more arrow-shaped. Maybach’s high-end saloons are now provided with restyled, horizontally structured bumper trim that makes them look wider, as well as LED daytime driving lights bordered with a chrome insert integrated into the outer air intakes. The front end of the Edition 125! is complemented by exterior mirrors with larger surfaces and optimized aerodynamics for less driving noise.

The rear end, meanwhile, features dark red tail lights and a booth handle with chrome trim. Maybach 57 and 62 models are specified with high-sheen 21-spoke 19-inch wheels in titanium silver while Maybach 57 S and 62 S models are riding 12-spoke 20-inch wheels in noble sterling silver.

All of Maybach’s high-end saloons could be finished in the new Bahamas Blue paint. Before, only Maybach saloons with a long wheelbase could be fitted with the rear reclining seat. However, this feature is now available to be installed in the Maybach 57 and 57 S models, specifically on the front-passenger side in the rear of the Maybach 57 and 57 S models. Moreover, clients could expect a more refined seat upholstery layout as well as additional piping. In addition, the piping could be hand-braided or decorated with Swarovski Elements.

Maybach is constantly expanding its portfolio of high-quality equipment and appointments options. In the 125th anniversary year of the automobile the luxury brand is exhibiting a special one-off model, the Edition 125! at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in honour of the ingenious designer Wilhelm Maybach. This high-end luxury saloon displays many familiar and new individualisation options which only Maybach customers can select. Highlights of the saloon painted in the newly created special colours Tahiti Black/ Patagonia Silver are lavish contour lighting and the laser-engraved light motif in the front armrest, which represents the alluring double-M in a curved triangle illuminated from inside. The other new features include a glove compartment lid embroidered with the signature of Wilhelm Maybach, silver-coloured topstitching, trim in silver carbon fibre/black piano lacquer, matt black 20-inch wheels with high-sheen spokes plus a newly styled radiator grille.

All the current Maybach saloons have a confident, superior appearance and are strikingly radiant. The exceptional status enjoyed by the high-end luxury saloons finds its main emphasis in the new dominant chrome radiator grille, which is meticulously produced in two different variants. In the Maybach 57 and 62 models it has 20 fine longitudinal bars, and in the Maybach 57 S and 62 S twelve solid double louvres and a “shadow strut” flag up the vehicle’s tremendous power. Both arrow-shaped radiator grilles are also higher and boast significantly greater dimensions than before, and they have been assigned a more upright position.

The designers have elevated the modified bonnet and given it sharply defined contours. It has a contoured edge and appears distinctly arrow-shaped. A restyled, horizontally structured bumper trim gives the Maybach saloons an even broader look. Daytime driving lights featuring LED technology and bordered with a chrome insert have been integrated into the outer air intakes.

The new exterior mirrors with optimised aerodynamics for less driving noise harmonise with the striking front, whilst their large surface means improved vision. Dark red tail lights and chrome trim used on the handle in the boot lid lend the end section a powerful, distinguished look. This in turn is underlined by new high-sheen 21-spoke 19-inch wheels in titanium silver for the Maybach 57 and 62 models. The Maybach 57 S and 62 S models will in future be shod as standard with new 12-spoke 20-inch wheels in noble sterling silver. All models are available in the new Bahamas Blue paint.

Interior – superb craftsmanship

The rear reclining seat which has only been available in the Maybach saloons with a long wheelbase up until now can, with immediate effect, also be installed on the front-passenger side in the rear of the Maybach 57 and 57 S models. At the same time Maybach has enhanced the craftsmanship of the seats for all models. The look of the seat upholstery layout has been refined and given additional piping. On request the piping can also be hand-braided or adorned with valuable SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS.

In the upper part of the seat backrest a redesigned badge in 925 sterling silver with “MAYBACH MANUFAKTUR” lettering is an impressive indication of the great love of detail and serves as a reminder of the prestigious environment in which one is travelling.

Maybach cuts an equally fine figure when it comes to the range of individualisation options available for the luxury saloons, which has been significantly extended. For the very first time there is an extremely high-quality flacon perfume atomiser available on request, having been developed exclusively by Maybach. Up until now it was reserved only for the special Maybach Zeppelin model, limited to just 100 units.

As an option a large, high-resolution cinema screen with a 19-inch diagonal can now be fitted to the centre of the partition in the Maybach 62 models, as an alternative to the 9.5‑inch monitors in the rear available until now. If required Maybach will also fit the vehicles which have a partition – which, incidentally, can now also be personalised with motifs of the customer’s choosing – with an overview camera, via which the rear passengers are able to keep an eye on the traffic in front of them without being seen themselves – even with an opaque partition window.

Thanks to an innovative WLAN router it is even possible to enjoy wireless internet access during the journey. This state-of-the-art connection uses the fast transmission standards HSDPA, UMTS and GSM/EDGE. A new mobile phone hands-free system with Bluetooth functionality is also available in the rear. And a newly developed DVD player in the rear now also reads extended DVD formats.

As one would expect, the Maybach Manufaktur showcases masterly handcraftsmanship with no compromises in the interior, where materials of the highest quality abound. There are three new interior appointments with different leather, carpet and headlining colours. New trim in selected dark brown bird’s-eye maple, which can be combined with brilliant porcelain piano lacquer in the Maybach 57 S and 62 S, underline the regal ambience. As an alternative, customers can now choose from carbon-fibre trim elements with a sporty touch in various different colours, such as silver and red.

More powerful yet fewer emissions

Even though the Maybach developers have increased the output of the Maybach 57 S and 62 S by 13 kW (18 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp), they were able to reduce the consumption figures (from 16.4 to 15.8 l/100 km) and the CO2 output (from 390 to 368 g/km CO2). The output of the 57 and 62 models remained unchanged, whilst consumption (15.0 as opposed to 15.9 l/100 km) and CO2 output (350 as opposed to 383 g/km) was also cut here. All the Maybach twelve-cylinder engines meet the EU5 standard/LEV2.l one-off piece presents exquisite new possibilities for individually styling the high-end saloons. The highlights include contour lighting and the laser-engraved light motif featuring the double-M in a curved triangle in the front armrest.

The wide-ranging new individualisation options perfectly complement the confident air of the legendary Maybach saloons.
