According to Australia's Carsguide, the chief engineer of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has confirmed that the Maybach name will be attached to a long wheelbase version of the sedan, expected to be called an S-Class Maybach. It will wear the three-pointed star up front but it will have Maybach touches everywhere else. This means champagne wishes and caviar dreams at the disposal of those riding in the sure-to-be-legendary rear seats.
The lengthy S-Class has already been spied out and about. In fact, it's been spotted testing on the Nürburgring, which is fairly ridiculous but at least lets us know the car might just be able to provide thrills in the same manner it provides comfort. Regardless of its 'Ring time, we believe this is a much better approach to producing a Maybach product. It can be priced lower than the competition from Rolls and Bentley, yet offer up quality, performance and technology that is on par with those rivals or even better.
