BEST of the BEST 2015: Mercedes-Maybach S600

FREE PREVIEW: The Mercedes-Maybach S600​ is among Robb Report’s 2015 Best of the Best selections…

When the resurrected Maybach brand again went dormant in 2012, it left a void in the ultra-luxury segment. The Mercedes-Maybach S600 (mbusa.com), the flagship of a new Silver Star sub-brand, fills this void. Although its roughly $189,000 base price is about half that of the May­bach 57, the S600 incorporates more advanced technological and safety features, and it is equally luxurious.

The big sedan is based on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class platform, but it has an additional 6 inches of rear-seat legroom. Other (optional) features that will appeal to owner-passengers include two reclining rear seats with leg-rest extensions, a refrigerator that is accessible through the center console and stocked with two silver Champagne flutes, and a Burmester entertainment system.

Chauffeurs or owners who drive the car will appreciate the 6-liter biturbo V-12 engine’s 523 hp and 612 ft lbs of torque. The Magic Body Control suspension system, which smooths out road irregularities, will appeal to drivers and passengers alike.
