Since ours is no longer a country that is shy to live it up, noticing the change, Mercedes-Benz has plans to re-introduce the Maybach in India. Although this time, it won’t be a standalone brand, but an opulently appointed S-Class that wears the badge. Called the Mercedes Maybach S 600, this German palace on wheels is specifically made for the chauffeur driven, as the wheelbase of a normal S-Class has been extended to live up to that Maybach badge on the boot.

Here’s how much it costs.
