Maybach releases yet another variant of their larger-than-life sedan. We;ask why.
For its fourth year back in the existence, Maybach has released its fourth variant-the 62 S. This second S model (“S” is for “special,” not “sport”) is the best of both sides of the Maybach world, boasting both the most space and the most power. That means passengers can recline in the rear seats while being propelled to 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds, thanks to a 612 hp, twin-turbo V-12 built by Mercedes’ AMG division.
Piano lacquer and carbon fiber interior bits surround acres of sumptuous leather upholstery, and as with other models, there’s a beautiful glass roof and optional wireless internet-everything a successful businessman needs on the road. The problem? The new Mercedes-Benz S-class-notably in S63 AMG form-is ninety percent the car that this 62 S is, and costs much, much less. Some would argue that it’s a better looking vehicle as well. (Such as us.) But If you’re all about the best-of-the-best badge, this limousine is just the thing to spend that bonus on.
