Seeing a Mercedes in any Pullman guise is anyways a rare sight, but to see the latest iteration, namely the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman is even rarer.
Still, we have footage of the very rare model, which has been caught in the metal cruising the streets of Sindelfingen in Germany. Daimler decided the failed attempt to make the Maybach standalone brand compete with Rolls-Royce was just a trial error and has decided to reuse the moniker for the very expensive versions of the flagship S Class. The Maybach brand now acts as a subbrand just like the sporty AMG, taking the Benz moniker out of the picture. But there’s one model to rule them all – which is the iconic Pullman version. By the way, the well known German tuner Brabus is actually taking care of the bespoke construction of this one and the standout feature will not be its raw power (although massive, none the less) but rather its length of 255.8 inches (6499 mm). And the most satisfying cabin of a modern Mercedes will be enabled by the whopping 173.9 inches (4418 mm) wheelbase.
The S600 badge also means under the hood sits the very elegant twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 power plant that churns out 523 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. The model was first presented to the public back in March during the Geneva motor show but it seems the eager owners have not received any Pullmans and may be waiting for the start of 2016 to do so. By the way, the base price goes from 500,000 euros upwards and we dare not think of the cost for the armored version.
