Contrary to what Porsche does, Mercedes-Maybach is into the habit of adding more "things" to its cars as the price tag creeps higher. With the just launched Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet it does just that, adding plenty of goodies to what was already a powerful cabriolet with the Mercedes-Benz S65AMG.
Apart from the classy add-ons that make this S650 a Maybach, you also have to keep in mind that the price is set a over Rs 2,19,92,720 and at that price you also get exclusivity; as only 300 convertibles will be produced.
It looks fabulous in red, but it is a wee bit disappointing that it just looks like tuned Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Cabriolet with a few cosmetic changes. Those changes come in the form of new front-bumper and some chrome accents that you will find all over the convertible's body.
There are Maybach badges on both sides and you get shiny new 20-inch bichromatic forged wheels.
However, it is the interiors that have changed, something that adds that extra oomph and the Maybach luxury. There's waterfall inspired upholstery and diamond ring quilting that should impress perspective buyers.
And obviously one can tell the exclusivity when there is a chrome-plated '1 of 300' sitting in the center console between the two front seats. As with all things Maybach, there's also the four-piece luggage set and a car cover with a diamond quilted design.
Under the hood there's a 6.0-litre V12 that produces 625bhp and 738lb ft of torque, which should be enough to propel the owner and three other passengers (including the car) from 0-60mph in just 4.1 seconds.
