Mercedes-Maybach S 500 will be assembled locally at the Mercedes Benz India plant in Chakan, Pune. Measuring 5,453mm in length and sitting on a wheelbase of 3,365mm, the Mercedes-Maybach S 500 grows in dimension as compared to the regular S Class. This results in better cabin space especially for passengers at the rear wherein two individual, electrically adjustable seats are seen. There are also a few exterior changes that add even more luxury to the S500.
Mercedes-Maybach S 500 is powered by a 4.6 liter, V8 engine offering 455 bhp power from 5,250-5,500 rpm and 700 Nm torque from 1,800-3,500 rpm mated to a 9 speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is achieved in 5.0 seconds. Fuel efficiency is rated at 11.23 kmpl, while auto emissions stand at just 207 g/km and top speed stands at 250 kmph.
