It’s time now for the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman to get its facelift, after the Maybach and regular S-Class models received theirs. Apart from an updated design, the VV222 also gets an updated equipment list and powertrain.

On the exterior, there’s now a new front grille that is similar to that found on the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concepts. There’s also a set of 20-inch wheels in a 10-hole design, while the colour palette now includes new two-tone paint finishes.

As before, the Pullman measures 6.5 metres long and has a wheelbase of 4,418 mm, which is 1,053 mm longer than the X222 Maybach S-Class. Customers will also get new colours for the interior, including magma grey, mahogany brown and silk beige/deep sea blue.

All the creature comforts of the Pullman are retained here, but there’s now a front view camera so rear passengers are able to monitor the traffic in front the limousine even when the partition screen is closed. Additionally, the sound system now comes with a “two cabin sound” feature, allowing for independent music control.

The S 600 moniker of the pre-facelift model is now gone, and the new Pullman is now identified as the S 650. A 6.0 litre twin-turbo V12 continues to be of service in the S 650, but now has a higher output of 621 hp (630 PS) and 1,000 Nm of torque – the previous S 600 “only” had 523 hp (530 PS) and 830 Nm. Despite its size, the Pullman will complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 6.5 seconds.

If you’re interested, the new Pullman is priced from around half a million euro (about RM2.4 million). Mercedes-Maybach will likely give the Pullman Guard, an armoured version of the limousine, a similar update in the future. That one may cost quite a bit more.
