With the 57 S ("S" stands for Special) Maybach is expanding its model range with a saloon which combines contemporary luxury, ultimate comfort and state-of-the-art, high-performance technology to the level of perfection typical of the brand.
With this more powerful and individualised variant of the Model 57 Saloon, Maybach meets the exclusive wishes of demanding customers for even more performance and dynamic handling.

The new, more powerful twelve-cylinder powerpack in the Maybach 57 S has a displacement of six litres and an output of 450 kW/612 hp thanks to a twin turbocharger and water intercooling. The impressive maximum torque of 1000 Nm (electronically limited) is available over a wide range between 2000 and 4000 rpm. The engine produces a blistering performance and accelerates the Maybach 57 S from zero to 100 km/h in just five seconds. This provides effortless performance reserves at all times for the more sportily inclined Maybach driver.

The twelve-cylinder bi-turbo engine is assembled by hand. The "one man – one engine" philosophy – confirmed by the signature of the technician responsible on the engine cover of the V12 bi-turbo – guarantees the highest quality and attention to detail.

Effortless superiority:suspension

The suspension of the Maybach 57 S features the Adaptive Damping System ADS II. By modifying and stiffening the suspension configuration of the 57 S, Maybach developers have succeeded in reconciling different requirements perfectly. It can be relied upon to ensure that the impressive performance and very high dynamic potential can be safely and effortlessly transferred to the road at all times. At the same time the very high level of ride comfort for which the Maybach luxury saloons are known remains unimpaired. Striking 20-inch spoked wheels with size 275/45 R 20 Michelin Pilot Sport tyres complete the suspension system and visually underline the car's sporty and dynamic appearance.

The Electronic Stability Program (ESP), acceleration skid control (ASR) and the braking system have been configured for the increased performance potential and consistently ensure an optimal level of passive safety in the Maybach 57 S.

Dynamic lines:exterior

Discreet and tasteful highlights underline the decidedly dynamic external appearance of the new Maybach 57 S.

The front end features a redesigned radiator grille with double louvres. The headlamps have likewise been redesigned, with backgrounds painted in the vehicle colour. The brilliant and aesthetically appealing overall impression of the front end is rounded off by fog lamps with new chrome surrounds

The rear view is characterised by a newly designed rear apron. This integrates the prominent, chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes on the left and right into the vehicle contours and emphasises their attractiveness. The boot lid bears the lettering "Maybach" and "57 S", and the model designation may also be found on the wings beneath the A-pillars.

The car is only available with a special metallic black or metallic silver paint finish.

Luxurious touches: interior

The individually designed interior of the Maybach 57 S has an atmosphere of its own. This is in large part due to interior features which are coated in piano lacquer or trimmed in carbon – these are trimmed in wood in Maybach saloons.

Particular attention to detail is obvious in the centre console: this innovative creation consisting of piano-lacquered and carbon features is another powerful interior highlight which visually underlines the impressive performance potential of this Maybach model. As an alternative, Maybach customers can also opt for a likewise new variant in anthracite poplar wood rather than the carbon components.

The likewise new leather upholstery, which is optionally available in black with the silver exterior or in light-coloured leather with a black exterior, is perfectly coordinated with this colour scheme. The sporty impression is enhanced with colour-contrasted piping on the seat upholstery. The selector lever knob in the interior colour and the steering wheel covered in black, partly perforated leather ideally complement the interior colour scheme.

The speedometers in the dashboard instrument cluster and the roof console in the rear of the 57 S are graduated up to a speed of 198.83 mph (320 km/h). All the controls are arranged in the driver’s field of vision and reach, and underscore the tasteful layout, perfect proportions and driver-oriented layout of the cockpit in the Maybach 57 S.

Exclusive comfort: new interior design of the rear

The design of the head restraints has been adapted to suit the stylish interior. Even on longer journeys at higher speeds, their ergonomic shape ensures optimal relaxation and the level of comfort typical of a Maybach.

An opaque curtain is optionally available for the large, black-tinted rear window. This shields the interior from prying eyes while creating a pleasant, subdued lighting effect even during daylight hours.

Matching the interior colour scheme, the roof lining and side trim in the 57 S are in anthracite Alcantara. This emphasises the dynamic and elegant atmosphere even further and ideally accentuates the effect of the black piano-lacquered surrounds of the roof instruments.

Carefully selected leather, materials of very high quality and the painstaking workmanship in the interior of the Maybach 57 S impressively reflect the high quality standards to which the Maybach custom workshops are committed.
