Mercedes-Maybach Pullman: $566,922 and 21 feet long

Meet the next level of exclusive luxury: the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman.

Like the Mercedes-Maybach S600 that debuted at the 2014 LA Auto Show, the Pullman is based on the Mercedes S-Class. At 21.3 feet long, though, it’s a full 3.5 feet longer than the S600. To put that in perspective, if you parked a couple Smart Fortwos bumper to bumper next to the Pullman, the big sedan would be approximately 3.6 feet longer.

Mercedes-Maybach’s second model is also one of the most expensive cars you can buy. Starting at $566,922 without armor, the leather-clad Pullman is simply palatial.

In typical limousine style, rear VIP passengers sit facing the front in plush executive seats, which have individually adjustable backrests, cushions, and calf supports. The two other occupants sit facing the rear.

As you’d expect from Mercedes-Maybach, the car is fitted with drink chillers, roof-mounted displays, and a partition-mounted, 18.5-inch monitor fit for a monarch. There’s also an optional Burmester 3D surround-sound system and tons of other customizable features.

Power comes from a 6.0-liter biturbo V12 that produces 523 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque, which should be more than enough to lug government officials and their bodyguards around in luxury.

Coinciding with the 50th birthday of the iconic Mercedes-Benz 600, the new Pullman will officially debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March. Details will continue to pour in as we approach the event, so stay tuned for more info.

The car is slated to go on sale at the beginning of 2016 in Europe. As for the U.S. market, Mercedes says the model is TBD.
