2005 IAA show heralds sales launch for new Maybach 57 S - Maybach 57 S: Dynamic Perfection

  • 6-litre V12 biturbo engine with 450 kW / 612 hp

  • Firmer suspension combined with superb comfort

  • Piano lacquer and carbon interior elements

  • Maybach presents even greater scope for individualisation

Stuttgart - The 2005 IAA show in Frankfurt marks the sales launch of the latest addition to the Maybach model line-up: the newly developed 57 Spezial. This new saloon responds to the wishes of demanding customers for even greater engine output and agility. In order to meet their requirements, its 6-litre V12 biturbo engine has been enhanced by Mercedes-AMG to develop 450 kW/612 hp. It also features a firmer suspension set-up which ensures that it is able to transfer this formidable power to the road surefootedly without compromising the extremely high level of ride comfort which is one of the hallmarks of the Maybach luxury saloons. This combination makes the Maybach 57 S the ideal high-end luxury saloon for enthusiastic owner-drivers seeking the very latest high-performance technology implemented in a manner which embodies the perfection characteristic of the brand. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of just five seconds provides impressive proof of the outstanding performance offered by the new Maybach 57 S.


Design emphasises dynamic character

Visual highlights add emphasis to the distinctly dynamic character of this impressively powerful luxury saloon. They include an exclusive monochrome colour scheme featuring special black or silver paint finishes, a modified front section with an enhanced radiator grille and revised light units, a discreet "57 S" legend on the front wing below the A-pillar and on the boot lid, as well as striking new 20-inch spoked wheels.

The highly distinctive and exclusive tone is maintained inside the vehicle where a carefully balanced combination of piano lacquer and carbon elements - especially in the areas within the driver's reach and immediate field of view - creates an atmosphere of dynamic elegance.

The new Maybach 57 S can be found in the luxury brand's Center of Excellence in Sindelfingen from November 2005.

Maybach meets even the most unusual customer requests

The Maybach high-end luxury saloons at the Frankfurt Motor Show also illustrate the exceptional scope for individualisation offered by the brand. One example on show is a Maybach 57, for which the specialists at the "Manufaktur" have developed a paint finish identical to that of the Maybach "Zeppelin" model of 1933. And the similarities don't end there: although the two vehicles were manufactured almost 75 years apart, they share not only the same paint finish, but also the same interior appointments and even the same chassis number. Moreover, they belong to the same owner!

The Maybach presence at the Frankfurt show demonstrates that the "Manufaktur" is also passionately committed to meeting other unusual customer requests with outstanding craftsmanship and painstaking attention to every detail. This is reflected in features such as trim elements finished in gold and precious stones, gold keys, family coats of arms and various forms of intricate inlay work.

Maybach attains the ultimate in individualisation with the exciting Exelero Sports Coupé. Built as a one-off, this model, which was commissioned by the tyre manufacturer Fulda, is capable of speeds in excess of 350 km/h.
