While it finally pulled the plug on the poor-selling Maybach line, Daimler AG hasn’t entirely abandoned the ultra-premium luxury car market. This image, used in a new patent filing, reportedly shows us what the German maker has in store for when it rolls out the new Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman line.
With prices expected to reach as much as $1 million for an armored version of the stretch limousine, Mercedes once again plans to challenge its two British-based ultra-lux rivals, BMW-owned Rolls-Royce, and the Bentley division of Volkswagen AG.
The look of the new S600 Pullman won’t come as a shock to potential buyers. It largely follows the lines of the current Mercedes-Benz S600 – though those lines stretch on for quite some distance. The new limousine is expected to measure a whopping 21 feet, nose-to-tail. That would be nearly 8 inches longer than the old Maybach 62.
