Although it axed the Maybach luxury brand, Mercedes-Benz didn’t abandon the idea of a rival for brands such as Rolls-Royce. As a result, the German manufacturer will roll-out the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman that will carry a price tag of $1 million (733,000 euros) for the version carrying armor plating and three rows of seats.
This means that the new S-Class Pullman will be more expensive than the long wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. According to Bloomberg, the upcoming S-Class Pullman will have a length of 6400 mm, which is about 406 mm more than the long wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Inside sources said that the S-Class Pullman will offer four rear seats that will face each other and will be separated from the chauffeur compartment by a window.
Still, this is not the only vehicle coming from Mercedes-Benz as the carmaker also plans to unveil an extra-long Maybach Edition of the current S-Class in November, at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
