7 Things the 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 Has that the S-Class Doesn't

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is by no means second-rate, but that's kind of how it seems now that the new 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 has made its debut. While the German automaker may have killed the brand off in 2012, it has brought the name back to life through a stretched version of the S600 stuffed with tons of hyper-luxurious amenities that aren't offered on the regular S-Class.

This luxurious land yacht is 8.1 inches longer than a standard S-Class at 214.6 inches, while its wheelbase is 7.9 inches longer at 132.5 inches. That growth spurt now means that the wheelbase is nearly 4 inches longer than a Bentley Mulsanne, while the overall car is more than six inches longer. Compared to the palatial Rolls-Royces, it slots right in between the Ghost and the Phantom in terms of length. A couple fun facts: Two smart ForTwos still don't add up to the lengthiness of this sedan with 2.4 inches to spare, and at 61 inches, it would take three and a half of me laid out on the floor to roughly equal the length of this sedan.

All that extra space was needed to make room for even more amenities. As Gordon Wagener, Daimler Vice President of Design said, almost every surface of the Maybach S600 is covered in leather. With that said, here are seven other things that we saw on the S600 Maybach has that the "lesser" S-Class doesn’t:

1. Robbe & Berking silver-plated and handcrafted champagne flutes

2. Brand's first-ever sliding Panoramic sunroof with Magic Sky Control

3. Ambient lighting around the chrome-plated and rotating Burmester tweeters

4. Thick chrome trim surrounding windows on the exterior

5. Available "Piano lacquer flowing lines" trim for the dash

6. Small roller sunblinds for the triangle window

7. Two vanity mirrors in the rear that are covered in diamond-quilted leather
