Mercedes-Maybach Pullman S600 Will Rule and School All S-Classes

Benz’s limousine is back. As has been widely speculated, the automaker has brought back the Pullman name, in the form of the S-Class-based Mercedes-Maybach Pullman S600. The announcement comes just months after the automaker unveiled the Mercedes-Maybach S600.

Mercedes-Maybach’s new limo, of course, was inspired by the original Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman. In fact, the classic Pullman’s 50th anniversary coincides with the new Pullman’s global debut at next month’s Geneva auto show.

The new Pullman will command the road with an overall length of 255.9 inches (21.3 feet). That’s 41.5 inches longer than the Mercedes-Maybach S600 and 49.4 inches more than the regular S-Class. The Pullman gets more headroom, too, thanks to its overall height of 5.2 feet, which is 3.9 inches higher than the regular S-Class.

Like the classic Pullman, the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman S600 can be had with four rear seats that face each other and all passengers will have ample space to stretch out their legs. The VIP seats will face forward and will have multiple backrest and legrest adjustments, while the other passengers sit on fold-down seats that face backwards (the Pullman can be optioned without the fold-down seats).

The partition between the cockpit and passenger area can either be lowered or changed from transparent to opaque at the push of a button. Curtains are used for all rear windows. As expected, essentially every interior panel is covered in leather, wood, or metal accents. Champagne paraphernalia and large infotainment screens are also standard.

Power will come from Benz’s stout 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 making 523 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque.Mercedes states that pricing will start at around $566,000. While that's certainly attainable for wealthy Americans, the automaker still has no plans of selling the new Pullman in the U.S. Regardless, the Pullman will go on sale elsewhere early next year.
