According to a report coming from German publication Automobilwoche, Mercedes-Benz could be looking to outsource production of what should become the most expensive sedan in the world.
The report hints that the third biggest premium automaker in the world is looking to implement the production of its more than $1 million S-Class Pullman limousine at the high-performance aftermarket tuning company Brabus.
While AMG is the in-house tuner for the brand, acting now as a standalone division of the company, Brabus, headquartered in Bottrop, Germany also has a long, loving history with the cars of the company – repeatedly making the fastest ever Mercedes cars in the world.
The Pullman has been reported by Bloomberg last week to feature three rows of seats and have armor plating, while with its 6400 mm length – more than 40 cm longer than the $474,900 extended wheelbase Rolls-Royce Phantom – it should also become the largest car in serial production today.
Mercedes-Benz has been reportedly preparing to usher a six version line-up for the S-Class top of the line sedan, which was revealed in a new generation last year – with the Pullman on top and a Maybach variant slotted immediately below, to be unveiled later this year at the Los Angeles auto show and in Guangzhou, China.
