If you have money too spare, and want a car that combines the best of open-top motoring with luxury, Mercedes has got just the thing for you. Making its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show is the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet, the “ultimate in open-air exclusivity.”

Yours for just 300,000 euros (RM1,406,179 before Malaysian taxes), only 300 units of S 650 Cabriolet will be built, each based on the open-top Mercedes-AMG S 65 Cabriolet. To make the limited-run model stand out from the regular car, there’s a plethora of modifications applied to it.

Up front, the ‘AMG’ badge on the dual-bar grille has been replaced with a new one that says ‘Maybach’, while the lower apron has been redesigned as well. Elsewhere, there’s more Maybach badging on the side sills and rear boot lid, plus a set of 20-inch forged wheels that feature a bichromatic finish for a greater visual impact.

Opening the doors, you’ll be greeted by first, a Maybach logo projected onto the floor by means of entrance lighting, followed by a full-leather interior. The seats, which feature diamond quilting on the seat side bolsters and Budapest piping, are upholstered in a “waterfall-like” upholstery and have embroidered Mercedes-Maybach logos.

Elsewhere, the trim elements seen here are commissioned individually for each vehicle based on the colour and grain. On the rear deck, the overall look can be further enhanced with “flowing lines,” to create an ambience inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Style “Arrow 460-Granturismo” yacht.

Said lines are made with a combination of precision machining and traditional craftsmanship, where the substrate beneath the fine wood veneer of the trim element is exposed in a special process using a fine milling cutter (with a diameter of 0.8 mm). The individually milled lines follow the shape of the trim, creating the three-dimensional effect.

Of course, there are plenty of other interior colour concepts for customers to choose from – pastel yellow/black to porcelain/saddle brown – to allow for further personalisation. Exclusive to the S 650 Cabriolet are trim elements finished in designo nut brown magnolia.

Other interior details include unique floor mats, chrome-plated “1 of 300” lettering on the cup holder, and Maybach lettering on the steering wheel. Kit such as Aircap, Airscarf and Swarovski headlamps, all of which are optional extras on the regular S-Class Cabriolet, comes as standard here too.

Under the hood, the M275 6.0 litre biturbo V12 engine continues to be employed, providing 630 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. The luxo-barge will make the 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.1 seconds, and hit a limited top speed of 250 km/h, both figures identical to the base car.

But wait, there’s more. Mercedes will also throw in a four-piece, colour-matched luggage set, a diamond-quilted car cover with the Maybach logo, a Maybach-logo key ring, and a certificate signed by Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche himself.
