Daimler has teased the new Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet that it will debut at next week’s Los Angeles motor show.
Over the weekend, the German luxury car maker put out a short teaser video on its social media accounts, giving us a glimpse at the new high-end convertible.
The Mercedes-Maybach versions of the S-Class feature an even longer wheelbase than the long-wheelbase sedan, as well as accompanying changes to the design aft of the B-pillar, including new doors, roof, and rear section.
From what we can see, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 seems to be purely a luxury-turned-up-to-11 version of the existing S-Class cabriolet, with no changes to the body work or to the wheelbase.
That said, the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet should be a rare sighting, as a small plaque on the centre tunnel suggests that just 300 copies of this variant of the S-Class cabrio will be made.
Features will include Maybach-style wheels, chromed edging for the lower front air intake, unique interior trim, a Burmester sound system, and plenty of Maybach badging.
Although Mercedes-Benz has yet to provide any concrete details about the car, apart from its fuel consumption rating of 12L/100km, the S650 badge suggests that new car will use a version of the twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 currently employed in the S65 AMG models.
In AMG trim, the V12 motor pumps out 463kW of power and 1000Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.
