Lewis Hamilton is selling his Mercedes-Maybach S600

Today, we know that celebrity-owned cars aren’t really the most affordable second hand models we could get. But at the same, there are a lot of fans out there who are willing to do anything to get up close with their idols, and for some of them, that means spending more. Wouldn’t you want to buy a car once raced or driven by Michael Fassbender? Well, if you could afford it, why not?

In fact, many celebrity-owned cars have been put up for sale before, including Daniel Craig’s one-off Aston Martin Vanquish. There’s also Elvis Presley’s 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SEL. That’s not all. Even Russia’s leader Putin’s 1995 Mercedes Benz S Class S600 Pullman Guard was once up for sale with a $1,351,740 price tag. We assume this had been purchased already since the ad for it is gone.

But at the time of this writing, there is one high-profile car that really caught our attention. This car had been owned by reigning Formula 1 champion, Lewis Hamilton. It is a 2015 Mercedes-Maybach S600 luxury sedan and its ad is currently up on British used cars listings site, autotrader.co.uk.

Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is opulence visualized in a crossover

The Maybach sub-brand has already come to characterize utmost exclusivity among luxury vehicles. Thus, if Maybach unveils an all-new concept with “ultimate luxury” as part of its moniker, it would only be dutiful to take a peek at this new study. As not to disappoint, a new concept vehicle dubbed as “Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury” has just been unveiled by the sub-brand at the Auto China 2018 in Beijing.

As its name indicates, the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury represents how the sub-brand views the future of ultimate luxury, as packed in a shape of a premium crossover. Measuring 5,260 mm in length, 2,110 mm in width and 1,764 mm in height, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is practically a luxurious electric car powered by four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors for a fully variable all-wheel drive configuration.

Total output is pegged at 750 hp (550 kW), with energy derived from a flat underfloor battery with a capacity of around 80 kWh. This battery allows the concept to travel more than 500 km as per NEDC, or over 200 miles as per EPA. The study has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Leaked Images: Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury electric SUV concept

As we all know, the newest Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury will be officially revealed on April 25. However, even before its actual premiere, images of the said model had already been leaked on the internet. As you can see here, the same images were posted on CarNewsChina. Take note that these are actually the official shots of the new Vision Mercedes Maybach Ultimate Luxury. Some describe this SUV as a sedan with a tall roof and a lot of ground clearance provided by the jacked up suspension.

In fact, Mercedes refers to this as an SUV saloon that will meet the requirements of affluent Chinese buyers who are vital in the success of super luxury car sales worldwide. It obviously has similarities to rival models like the Bentley Bentayga and the upcoming Rolls Royce Cullinan.

As expected, it still gets the aforementioned “bold new grille”, which doesn’t differ from the vertical slats of the facelifted Mercedes Maybach S Class and the much longer Pullman version. In the back is a retro-like split window layout. Nevertheless, we still think that the design on the previous Vision concept looks better. We’re referring to the Vision Mercedes Maybach 6 from two years ago.

Geneva 2018: Mercedes-Maybach S-Class owners can get luggage and accessories to match their cars

Opulence has been the name of the game for the Mercedes-Maybach brand. This is especially true when it comes with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, which was recently updated to offer more luxury. Now, wealthy clients of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class could now avail of an exclusive collection of color-coordinated luggage items and fine accessories to suit their lavish on-the-road lifestyle.

These new luggage items and fine accessories are part of the Maybach – Icons of Luxury exclusive collection. The collection includes “The Jaunt I” travel bag, “The Streamlined I” garment carrier, “The Hideaway I” two-tone leather shoe bag, “The Cocoon I” key wallet, and “The Key Moment I” key ring.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been known to be more than just luxurious as it is also prestigious and exclusive. Now, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been updated to feature a distinct and revolutionary lighting technology, as unveiled to the global public at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Image projection is not a new concept in cars. So-called heads up display (HUD) uses light to project images onto the windshield just in front of the driver. The projected image by the HUD system features various information considered as relevant to the functions of the vehicle. This lighting concept is taken into another level by the groundbreaking revolutionary headlamp technology Digital Light. While other headlamps just illuminate the road ahead, Digital Light also projects certain symbols – in HD quality -- directly in the field of vision, serving as a visual aid to the driver of a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Likewise, the projected symbols serve as communication with the surroundings.

This marks the first time that Digital Light is employed in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Digital Light will be soon entering small series production in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, with only a select few of its fleet customers taking delivery of the symbol-project luxurious flagship in the first half of 2018.

For those of you who have extremely high standards, the Mercedes-Benz S Class may not be opulent enough for you. And this is the reason why the automaker decided to make the high class sedan a notch more luxurious with its Maybach variant. This model will make an appearance at next month’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show, before it goes on sale in the United States in the late summer of 2018.

What makes this variant stand out from its siblings would be the new grille that uses vertical slats, instead of the regular horizontal ones. On the lower fascia, you will find a metallic trim that gives the vehicle a flashier look.

The most prominent change here, however, would be the car’s profile. The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class now measures 215 inches (5,461 millimeters) long, while riding on a 132.5 inch (3,365.5 mm) wheelbase. This is a whopping 10 inches (254mm) increase than even the long-wheelbase S-Class Sedan. Having said that, passengers should have a lot more leg room in the cabin.

Recently, Mercedes-Benz announced that their new compact family will have at least 8 members. That’s a lot to swallow but we never really considered the A-Class would be associated with the Maybach sub brand.

But apparently, its inclusion makes sense to one artist, and that is Aksyonov Nikita. He rendered something that he calls the Mercedes Maybach A-Class. Of course, he took inspiration from no other than other Maybachs in Mercedes’ range - and by looking at his creation, all we can say is that it looks interesting.

The most obvious element in this rendering is the paint. We think that Nikita got this shade of blue from the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet Concept, except that it has a matte finish instead. Moreover, its front grille as well as the eye catching multi-spoke rims seem to also come from the same model.

A few months ago, Mercedes-Benz promised that they will be treating everyone to a “big surprise” during the Monterey Car Week. And true enough, many of us were stunned as they unveiled the all electric Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet convertible version of the hardtop model that made its debut at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last year.

Just like an art piece, this model is no doubt a head turner just like its predecessor. The Vision 6 Cabriolet stretches out to nineteen feet in length, and it sits on 24-inch wheels. Its hood appears extra long, while the tail tapers uniquely to a certain point. The front fascia gets a huge grille finished in chrome, which contrasts with the slim headlights. Mercedes actually refers to the rear end as a “boat tail”, complementing the Nautical Blue Metallic name for the exterior finish.

The Vision 6 Cabriolet’s interior completely stands out from the exterior. The two-seater cabin is finished in a clean white interior with silver accents - from the seats, the dashboard, to the steering wheel. The center console gets a wing-like “flowing” design that is given an ambient blue lighting around the elements, as well as the door panels. The illuminated dots around the seats all have tiny backlit Mercedes logos.

Have you seen anything like this yet? Or the better question would be, do you want to see something like this made? With this rendering, a Behance designer amps up the ante of the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class following a Maybach digital transformation. Russian digital artist Nikita Akysonov equipped Mercedes Benz’s pickup truck with massive air intakes, a new bumper plus a new grille with horizontal chrome design and flashy new LED headlights. At the back end of the pickup, a handful of new equipment certainly won’t go unnoticed too such as the new bumper, new tailgate and redesigned taillights in LED.

As standard, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class has been built as a tough performance pickup truck characterized by efficient handling and drivability These are achieved using Mercedes’ comfort suspension with coil springs on both axles, front independent wheel suspension, a multi link suspension at the rear and a ladder type frame. With its advanced design, the new pickup attains both being rugged and stylish.

The thing is, Daimler considers the X-Class to be the first pickup that provides superb performance both on road and off-road. In fact, Mercedes-Benz already has extensive knowledge in developing some of the toughest off-roaders and commercial vehicles like the G-Class and Unimog. Taking this into account, we can consider the new Volkswagen Amarok with V6 TDI engine to be its closest market rival. This is true at least for medium sized pickups with extreme off-road capabilities.

Sometime last year at the Chateau de Chantilly located 50 km northeast of Paris, rare automobiles from different parts of the world gathered to flaunt their premium looks. The longest coupe in the world, the Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 caught the eyes of many present at the Concours d'Elegance. It was a sight to behold. The exquisite coupe was presented for us to see into the future of luxury cars. The brand certainly outdid itself as it created a truly breathtaking study – the Mercedes-Maybach ECHO concept, a supercar that can take on the road as early as the year 2030.

Since the aforementioned Vision 6 Luxury Coupe design concept was made to showcase the future of premium hypercars, then a self-driving Maybach concept is just as timely as the coupe. The concept drawing came from the creative hands of design expert Hawan Park, who managed to create a car that features both futuristic as well as class, while also deducing how the visionary vehicle's wooden structure aids to disperse sound. Wood is the top material of choice for the interior akin to concert halls that possess unique mechanical and acoustic features.

This characteristic is the reason why wood is frequently utilized to build musical instruments. The 1.38meter-high car is shown with an interior covered in fine wood and other high-end materials. Furthermore, the ECHO concept will also flaunt a lot of novelties that include an awesome hologram projector that is located in the front of the cockpit, the gull-wing doors, and a flexible seat suspension. Aesthetically, the hypercar can certainly fit in a sci-fi movie with its elongated hood and millimetre clearance from the ground, and the fact that one is sitting so far away from the front adds a bad-ass touch.

For those wondering what having a luxury lifestyle entails, it is about revealing extravagance at every chance. No wonder many car enthusiasts are intrigued with the idea of a Smart Fortwo being reimagined as a Maybach.

Done by Peisert Design, one interesting change is that the front fascia has become flashy. Another thing that perks up the interest of many fans is how the design manages to effortlessly blend the large wheels to the micro car shape of the Smart. For those who want specifics, these are the 22-inch wheels inspired by the Maybach S650. Meanwhile, the front lights and the front grille are based mainly from the Maybach 6 Concept.

Interior-wise Peisert Design used some of the features from the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. An excellent example is the full-length glass infotainment system/instrument cluster. Further, fitted to it are two electric motors which drive each wheel. Finally, since it comes from a tradition of luxury, both the sides and the roof utilize carbon fiber panels.

Remember the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet that made its debut back in November 2016 at Los Angeles Auto Show? Yup, that’s the upscale version of the already luxurious S65. A few years ago, Daimler revived the Maybach nameplate to do a collaboration with Mercedes’ S-Class Sedan. The result was an extra-long super high-end sedan, looking all muscular, but at the same time, sensual.

Ever since then, Mercedes and Maybach have launched a couple of special edition vehicles, including the limited edition G650 Landaulet, where only 99 units were built. Alongside that was the S650 Cabriolet that is limited to 300 units.

It seems like the 300 units they were planning to build have already been built. Images online show dozens of the Mercedes Maybach S650 Cabriolet parked outside the Brabus headquarters in Bottrop. These images were posted on a German website Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog. And sources say that these beauties, painted in ivory, were made by the three-pointed star logo, and the 621 horsepower cabriolets are being upgraded by Brabus to their necessary specifications.

While the release of the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet signaled the end of the G-Wagen, the good news is that this also marks the beginning of a new range. For the next model to come out of this range, Peisert Design is offering a glimpse into this lavish and long sedan.

Conceived by none other than Jan Peisert, he dubs this as the Mercedes-Maybach 850 Landaulet. Using the Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan as a basis, he adds in the exceptional cues of the Maybach 6 concept, the same car presented in April 2016. This combination results in a concept that has long overhangs in the front and the rear section while having an elegant form worthy of the Maybach name.

Looking at the front, the grille comes with a style that brings to mind the Maybach 6 Concept. There are vertical chrome inserts which are highlighted with the illuminated Maybach logo and which show if the car is in normal driving mode or under the "Chauffeur" mode. Instead of using mirrors, there are now rear view cameras resulting in the aerodynamics being improved. The addition of the shiny LED headlights gives it that added aggressive appearance.

Certainly, it’s going to be a groundbreaking event. Mercedes gears up for the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show next month with its first ever Maybach-treated open top off-roader. Expect the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet to arrive at Geneva in style amidst its off-the-beaten track performance characteristics. Why? Because the G650 Landaulet is a combination of extreme off-road capability and luxury under one roof.

The G-Class has been equipped with new portal axles and an electronically controlled fabric top, making it an exceptional masterpiece in automotive and engineering. The high riding portal axles provides as much as 18 inches of ground clearance while the twin-turbocharged 463kW 6.0 liter V12 engine delivers up to 621hp and 738 lb-ft of powerful torque.

Since the open-top SUV is inspired by the first G-Wagen that came out in 1979, Classic car collectors will find it hard to pass up on the chance of having the new, one-of-a-kind Maybach. To make it more exclusive, Mercedes will be making just a total of 99 examples of the most expensive G-Class so far.

Since most of the exciting road trips happen off the beaten track, Mercedes-Benz came out with off-road vehicles like the G500 4x4² and the AMG G63 6x6. And now, after thirty-eight years, the German marque finally gave the old G-Class a more serious update. The new G65 AMG 4x4² convertible is set for its official debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show. Also known as the Mercedes-Maybach Landaulet, the off-road convertible is expected to come with a 621bhp 6.0-liter, V12 petrol twin turbo engine.

As seen on its official Facebook page, the new 4X4² Mercedes-AMG is like the Mercedes G-Wagen without the roof on it. Perhaps we can safely assume that it has the combination of G500 and G63 6x6 DNA. But aside from these, there are no further details except for the very revealing central brake lights on top of the spare tire and the wheel arches in carbon fiber finish.

Unlike the standard 4X4² with only 416hp, the AMG modified G65 4X4² boasts up to 621hp. This will make it the toughest and most absurdly potent off-road vehicle to ever come out of Mercedes to date. The folding fabric rooftop is electronically operated, similar to what the Maybach 62 Landaulet sedan had been using since 2007.

Daimler Group CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche somehow confirmed that there will be a new SUV in their lineup. This announcement came from the CEO himself while on a press meeting at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Unfortunately, he didn’t go over the details. According to Zetsche, “I’d like to say you will be seeing it, but I’ll leave it at that.”

According to rumors, the luxury SUV will be wearing a Maybach badge. If that’s the case, the SUV will be among Mercedes’ Maybach division which also includes the limited edition S650 Cabriolet. For sure, not everyone would be pleased with the idea but some people would also want an SUV with all the luxurious appointments. Even if it gets delayed for a few more years, we think a Mercedes-Maybach SUV would be more than amazing.

Besides, don’t you think it’s about time that Mercedes-Benz comes up with an ultra-posh SUV? In any case, the German brand’s luxury sport utility vehicle will be pitted against Lamborghini’s Urus, Rolls Royce’s Cullinan and of course, Bentley’s Bentayga model.

It’s not everyday that we hear stories about horrible car accidents but it seems this year has brought us a lot of bad news. What’s tragic is that the cars involved are not just average cars. Among the unfortunate incidents are those that destroyed a black Maybach 62S and the Pagani Zonda ZoZo that collided in Tokyo, Japan. Read on.

Based on the photos that surfaced after the accident, the Maybach was behind the one-off Pagani Zonda. Judging from this angle, the luxury sedan isn’t badly hurt. But still, we feel bad for the owner of the Pagani. The special Zonda was made to order by Zozotown founder Yusaku Maezawa. He had it equipped with a powerful 750 hp 7.3 litre V12 AMG engine apart from the specially designed carbon fibre exterior.

Just a few weeks ago, the 41-year old Maezawa posted a video on Instagram showing his beloved Zonda ZoZo alongside an Aston Martin One-77.The online shopping magnate only had his ZoZo in shorter than a year and so it doesn’t feel right to see it go just like that.

How do you solve the problem of having too much demand yet having too little supply? Typically, this problem is solved by increasing production of the product that is high demand. Automakers have been tackling this problem by increasing the capacities of their plants or having a contract manufacturer take care of a small chunk of the planned production.

However, if the product is something that is very exclusive, increasing production might not be the best option to take. After all, doing so might dent its exclusivity, and its tag price. That would be the very case of the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet.

As we can see, Mercedes is only producing 300 examples of the ultra-luxurious Maybach S650 Cabriolet – which should be fine considering that each example is given the utmost attention and craftsmanship when being built. Of these 300 examples, around a fourth -- or 75 examples – is earmarked for the United States, where its price soars to more than $300,000. That is not a problem, at the least.

It was around two years ago when Mercedes-Benz put forth the notion of releasing a Maybach SUV. Since then, rumors have been circulating about this possibility but top level management remains unsure on how to proceed. The latest speculation going around is that once the brand releases the production version of its EQ electric crossover, it may undergo the Maybach experience.

Regarding the first rumor, none other than the brand’s Chief of Global Sales Matthias Luhrs revealed to Top Gear that the brand is still closely studying all the possible options and indeed, having a Maybach SUV is one such choice. In relation to the second, the company continues to study the EQ Mercedes and should the brand proceed with a Maybach version, it remains to be too early to say, he added.

Based on various sources, the brand is putting off creating a Maybach SUV only after it has released the next generation of its products. There is the possibility for instance that rather than the EQ, the company may opt to begin with a future version of the GLS-Class. Should this happen, it is expected that the price can be in the six-figure range. Still, many enthusiasts are waiting for this as this Mercedes-Benz model could challenge not only the Rolls-Royce Cullinan but even the Bentley Bentayga.

For many car enthusiasts, nothing is more exciting than an ultra-luxurious and super-exclusive convertible. Well, you could take a closer inspection of one -- if you visit the upcoming 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

We are talking about the Mercedes-Maybach ultra-luxurious brand and its latest offering – the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet.

Yes, the Mercedes-Maybach brand will be unveiling its first cabriolet at the Los Angeles Auto Show, with an aim to deliver “the ultimate in open-air exclusivity.”
