Maybach 62 S

Maybach unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show 2009 – The Maybach 62 S : the world’s most powerful chauffer-driven saloon having luxury and comfort at the highest level. It offers a new dimension in travelling comfort, especially for the passengers in the generously proportioned rear compartment of the high-end luxury saloon.

The Maybach 62 S is equipped with the modified twelve-cylinder powerplant developing 450 kW/612 hp. The 62 S model is specially designed to be chauffeur-driven and meets the very highest of standards in terms of spaciousness, comfort and dynamism. The spaciousness and comfort make for a relaxing ride whilst the dynamism saves time – both of which are key aspects in the modern world.

Maybach sets the standards for the high-end luxury class: Luxury and comfort at the highest level

  • Highly advanced technical solutions provide exemplary safety and
    outstanding comfort
  • Exquisite hand-crafted excellence and state-of-the-art automotive technology
  • Two body lengths, two engine versions for the ultimate in luxury

In the 1920's and 1930's Maybach, together with Mercedes-Benz, already represented the pinnacle of German and international automotive engineering. Maybach has been continuing this tradition since 2002. Firstly Maybach unveiled the 57 and 62 models, followed in 2005 by the high-performance 57 S and in 2006 by the Maybach 62 S – the world's most powerful series-produced chauffeured saloon.

The Maybach 62 S – the fourth model variant – forms the basis for the Maybach Landaulet. It offers a new dimension in travelling comfort, especially for the passengers in the generously proportioned rear compartment of the high-end luxury saloon. Not to mention a prodigious power output. Like the 57 S model, it is equipped with the modified twelve-cylinder powerplant developing 450 kW/612 hp. The 62 S model is specially designed to be chauffeur-driven and meets the very highest of standards in terms of spaciousness, comfort and dynamism. The spaciousness and comfort make for a relaxing ride whilst the dynamism saves time – both of which are key aspects in the modern world.

 

In contrast to the sportier configuration of the 57 S owner-driver model which features tauter suspension, the Maybach engineers have retained the full spring travel for the 62 S in order to achieve an outstanding – indeed, probably unsurpassable – level of ride comfort. Although the suspension marks the absolute pinnacle of automotive engineering in terms of comfort, it also has excellent dynamic characteristics for reliably transferring the power to the road at all times. The fact that these two very different requirements have been reconciled so harmoniously testifies to the skill of the Maybach development team.

 

Prominent exterior features distinguish the 62 S model from the 62 model. As in the case of the 57 S model, these include a modified front end with a redesigned, powerful-looking radiator, distinctive 20-inch spoked wheels and restyled front lighting units. Like the 57 S model, the Maybach 62 S features a single-tone paint finish. In the interior, carefully coordinated applications of exquisite piano lacquer and, for instance, anthracite poplar create an atmosphere of exclusive elegance.
