2021 Mercedes-Maybach S580 unveiled, and it redefines luxury

First Published 20, Nov 2020, 3:54 PM

The new Mercedes-Maybach S580 is here. And it is exactly how someone would imagine any Mercedes-Maybach in their dreams -- Luxury  on four wheels. Obviously with a price tag of $200,000 or over Rs 1.4 crore, the car is not for everyone. But to be honest, it packs the value and perhaps outdoes itself once again in terms of seven-star luxury on the move.

<p>The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class combines perfection and high-tech solutions of the only recently presented Mercedes-Benz flagship model with the exclusivity and tradition of Maybach. The exterior design of the new Mercedes Maybach S Class includes a distinctive hood with a chrome fin and bold radiator grille. Moreover, the rear doors and flowing C-pillars -- as well as the light signature -- underline the model's superlative status. The 18 centimetre longer wheelbase compared to the long variant of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class entirely benefits the rear.</p>

<p>Distinguishing features at the front include the distinctive bonnet with a chromed fin and the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille. This is highly recognisable by its vertical, three-dimensional trim strips. With the new S Class, the Merc redefines the word oppulence.

Each headlamp has a light module with three extremely powerful LEDs with light that is refracted and directed by 1.3 million micro-mirrors. There is also a wide adjustment range between precise working light and relaxing lounge light.</p>
