The chauffeur-driven S-Class could also get champagne flutes and just about every premium amenities you could possibly think of in a top-tier vehicle.

Look to the side and it is evident that the vehicle is longer than the S-Class, there is chrome window trim, a triangular rear quarter window, and even an illuminated Maybach logo is there on the rear pillar.

The German manufacturer revived the Maybach nameplate in 2015 for its most luxurious models, and following on from the recent unveiling of the standard S-Class, the new Maybach model has now been revealed.

The Maybach S-Class is 5.5 metres long and has an increased wheelbase of 180mm over the regular S-Class. As standard, the new Maybach S-class gets individual "Executive" rear seats and a Chauffeur package as standard.

Mercedes has identified China, South Korea, Russia, the U.S., and Germany as the main markets for the new Maybach S-Class, with the growth rate in China being in double figures. It does, however, feature a unique grille with vertical slats - a design that has become a staple on modern Maybach models. To that end, there's no denying the timelessness of the optional forged chrome wheels (in Monoblock fashion), a Maybach hallmark, since 2016 at least. The two-piece taillights retain the same design that we're familiar with, but the bumper gains more chrome elements, and the exhaust finishers are made to look more distinctive.

While it looks good on the outside, the magic of the Maybach is inside the cabin.

Another "Maybach-only" feature is a rear-axle steering system which turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front axle to assist with parking, and in the same direction as the front axle by 4.5 degrees to aid cornering. As far as the interior goes, it has everything and everything else you can think of. The rear seats can also be adjusted to a more laid back position and even includes a deployable leg rest.

The MBUX Interior Assist also enables gesture control for the rear occupants, allowing them to open and close the roller sunblind and switch on the reading lights. Finally, the rear seat passengers are eligible for their own frontal airbags. That isn't to say, the front-passenger has in any way been overlooked. This consists of the 12.8-inch show on the entrance and centre, a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, two 11.6-inch rear-seat leisure screens, and a detachable pill that is nestled between the rear seats. The next-generation Mercedes MBUX infotainment system has also been installed.

The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class draws power from a 4.0-liter, V8 twin-turbocharged engine with EQ Boost 48V mild-hybrid technology. The motor develops 496 bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque, which is put right down to the rear wheels utilizing the 9-speed automated transmission. However, it seems likely a V12 option will follow... The 2021 Mercedes Maybach S-class' India launch is likely to take place by 2022, and when it does arrive, you can expect the new Maybach S-class' price in India to start at a little over Rs 2 crore (ex-showroom).
