The fact that the company is preparing a new luxurious extended version of the sedan became known back in May 2022. Then, in the status of the concept, Haute Voiture was presented (this is a reference to Haute couture, that is, “haute couture”). At the same time, Mercedes noted that this car would become “the most luxurious S-Class in history.” It was reported that the model will be released in a limited edition in early 2023.
Now the manufacturer has officially presented a commercial version of the Mercedes-Maybach Haute Voiture, which is based on the performance of the S 680. This car will soon be sent to small-scale production: in total, the company intends to produce 150 copies of the luxurious “stretched” sedan.
In the new version of the S-Class from Mercedes-Maybach, the body is made in two colors: for example, on top (including the hood, roof, pillars and part of the stern), the car is painted in “marine” dark blue, the rims of the novelty also received the same shade; the rest (that is, the lower half of the body) is made in pink-beige. Like the concept, the serial sedan has a massive branded radiator grille with thin vertical bars and air intakes in the lower part of the front bumper, as well as sidewalls and feed generously “flavored” with chrome.
