2015 Geneva - Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman shows us how to live life king size

When the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class made its debut 21 months back, it was easily the flagship of the range. It had to relinquish its position last November when the Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand was carved out with the launch of S600 limousine. Just 3 months later, the poor S600 is no longer the flagship Benz. That credit now goes to the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman that debuted amidst much fanfare at the ongoing 2015 Geneva Motor Show.


It's not an irony that the debut of the latest Pullman coincides with the 50th anniversary of the original and best-known Pullman of all time, the Mercedes-Benz 600.


Measuring a whopping 6.4 meters in length with a massive 4.4 meter weelbase, the S600 Pullman is easily the biggest, most expensive and most luxurious limousine bearing the three-pointed star. It is so big that the latest Pullman is actually longer than the erstwhile Maybach 62 and even the Extended Wheel Base version of Rolls-Royce Phantom. Now, that's a real big car!


A 6-liter V12 bi-turbo petrol engine that generates 530 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque powers this behemoth that would, in all probability, end up transporting the heads of state, rulers and royal families. Equipped with an electrically-operated partition between the front seats and the lounge-like passenger compartment, the S600 Pulman offers one of the most luxurious cabins to have ever graced an automobile. You might find that hard to believe, but one look at the images posted above would put those doubts to rest. Draped in finest quality leather, the two executive-style first-class seats at the rear and the two backward-facing fold-down seats offer the best location to seal multi-million dollar deals on the move. The roof-mounted analog dials informs the passengers of the outside temperature, speed and time while the Burmester 3-D Surround System promises unrivalled sound quality and listening pleasure.


Come 2016, a privileged few who could spare more than half a million Euros on an automobile would be able to lay their hands on the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman. If you, by any chance, happen to be one of those lucky few, do let us know. Believe us, all we need is a peep inside the ultra-luxe cabin and nothing else.
