This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the Maybach, and as you can guess, it’s building a special car in honor of the occasion. It’s called the Mercedes-Maybach Edition 100 and it’s based, naturally, on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It will be limited to 100 units worldwide and go on sale in the first half of 2022. It’s a little bit different than the standard S, but its rarity will certainly be its draw.
The new model will start with the company’s 621-horsepower V12 engine along with its top Burmester 4D surround sound system as well as heated and massaging seats. It’s a full seven inches longer than the limo-like, long-wheelbase S-Class, putting it at just over 215 inches of luxury, and will feature an all-wheel-drive powertrain.
The new edition will be hand-painted in two-tone Cirrus Silver and Nautical Blue with interior colors of Crystal White and Silver Grey Pearl. Special “Edition 100” badges will be placed throughout the cabin, including illuminated versions. The “Edition 100” logo extends to the wheels, which get a new grey finish.
To go along with your purchase, you get a car cover with the double-M badge as well as a “fine handmade case made of soft crystal white or black leather in file size,” so you can store all your important luxury-related documents. Some of Maybach’s partners are expectedly designing things like limited-edition, diamond-studded fountain pens to go with the vehicle.
Matching lifestyle accessories such as exclusive travel bags, leather goods, clothing, home and eyewear made in Germany enrich the customers’ lifestyles – beyond the car. Licensing partner Maybach Icons of Luxury develops the collections with the mythical brand emblem. Sustainably selected materials are used, such as natural horn, precious woods, titanium, cashmere or leather types that meet the highest environmental standards.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary, the Maybach The Peak collection presents a limited-edition fountain pen with an 18-carat gold nib and serial numbering in a stylish wooden gift box. The clip of the pen is set with 100 diamonds, in a choice of either black or white, the cap tip is made of mother-of-pearl, and the body is lacquered in the blue metallic shade of the “Edition 100” vehicles.
