A facelift for the range-topping Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is heading for a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show as Mercedes seek to make the Maybach S-Class more individual.
It lives on in the guise of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (and others), with Mercedes now using the Maybach bit in the same way as they do AMG; it’s a sub-brand to identify extreme luxury in the way AMG denotes performance.
It’s four years since the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class arrived to offer S-CLass buyers an extra layer of glitz, and now it’s getting a bit of a facelift for 2018, and will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Taking its cues from Maybachs past, and from the Maybach Vision 6 Concept we saw in 2016, the Maybach S-Class gets a new grille – inspired, say Mercedes, by a pin-stripe suit – as well as a traditional two-tone Maybach paint job.
Mercedes say there will be nine different colour combinations of the two-tone look, which is finished by hand to create the ultimate clear coat, and there’s a choice of three exclusive 20″ alloy designs, including those from the Mercedes-Maybach S-Cabriolet.
Inside there are new colour combinations – armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black – and you can have copper, gold or platinum-coloured contrast stitching.
The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
