The Mercedes-Maybach brand needs no introduction. It’s one of the most recognisable luxury car brands around, and any model that’s christened with the Maybach badge is built to perfection. The recently launched Maybach S560 you see here is no different.

Mechanically, it’s armed with a 4.0 litre turbocharged V8 that provides 469 hp and 700 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission, which catapults it from zero to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and tops out at an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h. Ride is managed by Mercedes-Benz’s Magic Body Control function which works in tandem with Road Surface Scan technology to provide precise damping forces of each individual wheel.

It’s an incredibly long car as well, featuring a lengthy 3,365 mm wheelbase that provides ample legroom for industry captains seated in the rear. There are two heavily bolstered Executive seats wrapped in Exclusive nappa leather upholstery with part-quilt pattern, and it even has an integrated chiller in the middle. Another noteworthy “gem” is the analogue IWC clock, which adds a nice touch.
