The upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show is set to bring the Maybach name back onto the table, with Mercedes-Benz set to introduce the currently-defunct moniker as a sub-brand, similar to the way in which AMG vehicles present themselves to us. Mercedes-Benz’ LA booth will see the Mercedes-Maybach S600 make its debut.
The German automotive producer has now confirmed the double M S-Class, also releasing two photos of the lavish automobile. While the first image only brings further confirmation for the return of the Maybach name, the second shows the cabin. This is one of those cases where the rear part of the interior holds the key to the purchase, so this is what we are being shown.

The automotive producer promises the Mercedes-Maybach S600 will offer “extra spaciousness, special seats and lavishly designed, prestigious interiors offering extensive scope for individualization.”

Mercedes-Benz insists on the fact that we are not dealing with an equipment line here, but with a sub-brand that will cater to the needs of those who require extra exclusivity.

Being an S600, the Mercedes-Maybach will be motivated by a biturbo 6.0-liter V12. On the standard model, if we can call it that, this delivers 523 hp or 530 PS. As for the torque, this sits at 612 lb-ft or 830 Nm.

Slipping into the unofficial area, here are some more expected specs

The Mercedes-Maybach S600 will be around 5.5 meters long (18 feet), which will make it about 30 cm (9 inches) more generous compared to the long-wheelbase S-Class (that’s the standard model in the US). This means the car will be slightly shorter than the smaller 57 model of the defunct Maybach range (5.7 meters). Elongating the Mercedes S-Class further would have brought aesthetic issues, so the aforementioned value offered the best compromise.

The... big picture

Mercedes-Benz is now pulling a card it should’ve played from the very beginning. You see, Daimler’s parent company revived Maybach back in 2002, but instead of offering proper standalone models based on the S-Class, like BMW does with Rolls-Royce, Daimler actually came up with reskinned S-Class models. Given this, it’s amazing that the brand lasted for a full decade.

While the Mercedes-Maybach scheme still doesn’t give the Maybach name the deserved reputation, at least the Germans are being honest here.
