Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach : surprise badge return for Rolls challenger

The Maybach name may have been axed as a brand after more than a decade of losses but it will be revived as a badge for a Mercedes-Benz S-Class designed to take on Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Mercedes-Benz had been expected to dip into its limousine history and use the Pullman name for the pinnacle of the company’s flagship, though the S-Class’s chief engineer told Australian media it would instead be Maybach.
