PRETORIA, 2 September 2022 – “To create the very best from the very best.” This was the credo of Wilhelm and Karl Maybach at the beginning of the 20th century. With a simple-sounding formula, the father and son duo created highly complex items: perfection and craftsmanship paired with innovation, both technically and in terms of workmanship. This is what the name Maybach stands for to this day.
On Saturday, 3 September, an exclusive group of Mercedes-Benz customers will be afforded the opportunity to experience a continuation of the Maybach family’s vision when an ultra-exclusive Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4MATIC “Edition 100” comes under the hammer at Mercedes-Benz Sandton. This model is the only one of its kind in South Africa and one of just 100 worldwide. The profits from the auction of this striking luxury saloon will be donated to Gift of the Givers Foundation.
The most beautiful and refined of luxury saloons
To mark the brand’s centennial, Mercedes-Maybach has introduced the S 680 4MATIC “Edition 100” luxury saloon. Equipped with a superior V12 engine, the “Edition 100” celebrates the Maybach centennial in the most beautiful, refined way. Characteristic Maybach hallmarks abound, such as a bespoke radiator grille bearing the brand emblem; hand-applied paint in a classic two-tone colour scheme – high-tech silver and nautical blue – and a special design of leather interior in designo crystal white and silver grey pearl.
In addition, the brand logo including the inscription “Edition 100” adorns the pillars, various stowage compartments and the illuminated panels in the interior. The “Edition 100” lettering also adorns the hub caps. The wheels of the S-Class also shine in a new grey finish.
Equipment highlights include the noise-insulated first-class rear compartment with Burmester 4D surround sound system, heat and massage functions for the seats and high-tech screens for infotainment. Compared to the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class, the model has an 18 centimetre longer wheelbase and is equipped with all-wheel drive for the first time.
In keeping with the anniversary edition, Mercedes-Maybach’s long-standing partners have also designed strictly limited special series items. Licensing partner Maybach Icons of Luxury, for example, offers a diamond-studded fountain pen from the Maybach the Peak collection; the silver and yacht manufacturer Robbe & Berking offers a champagne flute with a specially created engraving.
