Dark chrome and rose gold make the Night Series models stand out from the Maybach crowd. The darkened aesthetics are to imbue the prestigious automobile with a whiff of rebellion. Or that's what the creators of this new apparel claim, anyway.
After making its debut last month, the Mercedes-Maybach EQS all-electric is now available with the Night Series design package. The brand's emblem is present – in rose gold – on the headlights and the front bumper air intakes and running board (dark chrome is preferred here). The front grille panel is embroidered with Maybach pinstripes.
The passengers of the EQS Maybach are spoiled with Econyl carpet throughout and Nappa leather (died with plant extracts) in Manufaktur Crystal White/Black Pearl or Manufaktur Black Pearl only. The Manufaktur Natural Grain Herringbone wood pattern –contrasted by aluminum inserts – adds the finishing touch of posh and not-for-the-average-Joe fragrance.
The flagship of Mercedes-Maybach chariots of fortunes – the S-Class – gets the Night Series treatments in the form of grey, black, and white garments. A model-exclusive two-shade Onyx Black/Mojave Silver finish is also available for the pretentious Maybach commuters.
The GLS Night Series, on the other hand, stays true to its Mercedes origins and hold the Silver Arrow star high on its hood. Again, carved out of dark chrome (whoever thought something that's supposed to shine blindingly bright should also have a dark variant must have studied obscenely-rich people's habits in microscopic detail), styling elements accompany the tri-star emblem on the front grille and trim parts.
The front lights feature the house staple signature in rose gold, and the sides are ornated with the omnipresent no-shine chromium. The dark treatment is applied to the electronically-extendable running boards, which are anodized.
If it didn't become clear by now, please note that the Mercedes-Maybach GLS also has Manufaktur Black Pearl Exclusive Nappa Leather trim (just like the electric SUV and the limousine) or Manufaktur Crystal White/Black Pearl Exclusive Nappa Leather. And the herringbone wood inserts with aluminum are not exempted from this vehicle.
The new styling package will be available to order on the 2024 models –late 2023 for the EQS and early next year for the GLS. And, if a car alone isn't Night Series enough, Maybach will launch a collection of accessories to assort the motorized luxury. Bags, shoes, and sunglasses – courtesy of Maybach Icons of Luxury – are coming on the market (but there's no specific date announced at this point).
