REACH FOR THE SKY
Mercedes-maybach’s first cabriolet breaks cover.
This first drophead to be designated a Mercedes- Maybach (€ 300,000, RM1,420,680) is limited to 300 units worldwide and is slated to hit markets this spring. Externally, it differs from the standard cabriolet with 20-inch bichromatic Maybach forged wheels, chrome highlights and Swarovski headlights — an option on nonMaybach cabriolets.
The bulk of the attention to enhance the cabriolet is focused in its fully leather-lined cabin, the ambience of which is inspired in part by the Mercedes-benz Style Arrow 460-Granturismo yacht. Various pairings with interior trim are available including nut-brown magnolia wood accents.
Under the hood, one finds nothing less than a 6.0-litre biturbo V12 good for 630hp and an astonishing 1,000Nm of torque, with Airmatic suspension working beneath to whisk occupants along on a cloud of comfort. www.mercedes- benz.com
