100 Years of Maybach Perfection
The birth story of Mercedes-Maybach dates back to the early 20th century when Wilhelm Maybach and his son Karl, who were regarded as gifted designers, created highly complex things with a philosophy of perfection and innovation.
The marque continued to grow and it is now celebrating the centenary of its first production vehicle while also honouring the time with two special edition models; the Maybach GLS Edition 100 and S-Class Edition 100.
Both the Maybach GLS Edition 100 and S-Class Edition 100 are hand-painted in a two-tone Cirrus Silver/ Nautical Blue hue. The GLS rides on a set of unique forged wheels with Edition 100 insignias that can also be found on the hubcaps of both cars.
The two special cars feature the Maybach logo including the inscription “Edition 100” printed on the C-pillar or D-pillar of the GLS and S-Class respectively.
Inside, the two cars are the same and can be had either with a special leather interior or a designo crystal white/silver grey pearl. The GLS features a soundproofed interior while the S-Class comes with a noise-insulated first-class rear compartment with Burmester 4D surround sound system. The seats also feature heat and massage functions and even entertainment with infotainment screens.
Things get a little different under the hood. The Maybach GLS Edition 100 is powered by a V8 engine with 415 kW of power while a V12 powerplant with 456 kW lurks underneath the Maybach S-Class Edition 100.
Maybach also offers a car cover with a double M as well as a fine handmade case made of soft crystal white or black leather in file size to store keys and papers.
Only 100 units of each will be built and dealership deliveries are earmarked to begin in 2022.
