We begin the coverage of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show with one special car, to say the least. Mercedes-Maybach has gone on to unveil the new S650 cabriolet at the annual auto show held in the Los Angeles convention center. Based on the S65 AMG Cabriolet, the model will have a limited run of 300 units, of which 75 will make their way to the US market.
Firepower for the new S650 Cabriolet comes from a 630 hp 6.0-litre biturbo V12 engine mated to a 7G-Tronic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. If you’re not one of those who are satisfied with the engine specifics, worry not as the model has more to offer on the interiors.
Highlights of the interior include a Maybach logo projected on the floor as soon as you decide to step in to the car, and while you make yourself comfortable, notice the waterfall like upholstery with diamond quilting and Budapest piping. Trim elements would be a tailor made option to let Mercedes know what you’re up for. A few standard features on the model include AIRCAP, AIRSCARF and AIRMATIC suspension that would help in providing the best ride quality the brand has to offer.
Once again, the exclusivity of your choice (1 of 300 units) will be displayed in chrome on the cup-holder apart from various badgings, embroiderings, embossing across the vehicle. Also on offer is a four piece set of Maybach badged luggage that include two travel bags and two weekender bags available in the same shade as the interior of the S650 Cabriolet you chose. You will also receive a car cover that matches the shade of the soft-top. Last but in no means the least, a certificate signed by Dieter Zetsche, the Chairman of Daimler will also be up for grabs.
Wait, did I just forget about the exteriors? Pardon me, for I was swayed away by the interiors. Right then, the exterior features new bumpers for the front and rear with chrome highlights, Swarovski studded headlamps and 20 inch Maybach forged wheels. Only three themes will be available for this exclusive piece of mastery: Zircon Red paint with Porcelain / Black interior, Cote d’Azur Blue paint with Porcelain / Saddle Brown interior and designo Diamond White paint with Porcelain / Yacht Blue Interior.
