- the ultra-luxury mercedes-maybach s-class sedan will arrive at u.s. dealerships this summer with a starting price of $185,950.
- based on the mercedes-benz s-class luxury sedan, the maybach version sports styling embellishments, a longer wheelbase, and a decadent interior.
- the new maybach s-class is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter v-8 which is shared with the benz model and makes 496 horsepower.
although it's far from the most expensive car mercedes offers, the 2021 mercedes-maybach s580's asking price still dwarfs that of its benz-branded analogue. starting at $185,950, the sumptuously appointed luxury sedan is set to go on sale this summer and is even more expensive than the similarly posh mercedes-maybach gls600 suv as well.
the $75,000 price hike over the benz s-class gets you plenty of equipment, including a standard 496-hp twin-turbo v-8 engine, a roomier rear seat thanks to the maybach's stretched wheelbase, and a host of deliciously decadent features such as plush pillowed headrests, a 30-speaker burmester audio system, massaging front seats, and an in-cabin fragrance system which offers both floral and leather aromas.
the price tag can be jacked up even higher, too. many of the maybach's best features are reserved as options, including the massaging executive rear seats and the integrated beverage cooler with matching champagne flutes. mercedes-maybach will also offer a host of personalization options to allow buyers to spec their ride to their exacting standards—for a price. we don't yet know what that price is, however, as mercedes has yet to release full option pricing.
the maybach s-class, despite its six-figure price tag, is still a relative bargain in the ultra-luxury marketplace. consider that its closest rivals, the bentley flying spur and the rolls-royce ghost both cost more to start. the bentley's opens at $219,425 and the rolls, which has recently been redesigned as well, is expected to start at over $300,000.
