The new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman

Mercedes-Maybach’s second model assumes the top-of-the-range position, with vis-à-vis seating in the partitioned-off passenger compartment, and at the same time stands as a proud example of the high-end automotive luxury traditionally associated with Maybach.

Many governments, heads of state and royal families around the world have for decades chosen Mercedes-Benz saloons with the designation “Pullman” to drive them with the stateliness and style befitting their status. With its new model, the company is now extending its unique position in this demanding segment.

As its name suggests, the four seats in the rear of the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman are arranged vis-à-vis. The owner and VIP guests are seated in the direction of travel on two executive seats which are part of the standard specification; other passengers can sit on the fold-down seats facing backwards. If specifically requested, the Pullman can also be delivered in an exclusive version without the additional seats. In contrast to the norm, the backrest is adjusted separately while the footwell and seat reference point remain unchanged. The cushion can be adjusted separately, with inclination and horizontal adjustment combined. For the executive seats, the maximum backrest angle is 43.5 degrees. The most upright backrest position of 19 degrees allows relaxed working in the rear.
The VIP occupants sit on two standard-specification executive seats facing the direction of travel.
The reclining seats feature a calf support, which is freely adjustable for length and angle. The luxury head restraints come with an extra cushion as standard.

The V12 biturbo engine in the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman has an output of 530 hp. It has a displacement of 5,980 cubic centimetres and maximum torque of 830 Newtonmetres from 1,900 revolutions per minute. With a length of 6,499 millimetres, the Pullman is another 1,053 millimetres longer than the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The wheelbase is an impressive 4,418 millimetres.
Furthermore, at 1598 mm in height, the Pullman is more than 100 mm higher than a Mercedes S-Class, resulting in a tangible increase in headroom.

The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is upholstered in leather throughout as standard. There are three analogue instruments in the roof liner informing passengers in the rear of the outside temperature, speed and time. The partition wall between the rear and the driver’s area ensures discretion. It can also change from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button. The two first-class travellers in the rear have the greatest amount of legroom of any car in the segment, as well as 60 millimetres more headroom than in a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.


The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman provides extremely spacious seating combined with unique features characterised by their extraordinary and perfect craftsmanship. It goes without saying that Mercedes-Maybach offers its customers unique opportunities to individualise the appointments of their top-class limousines.
These include the exquisite Maybach paint finishes, which are applied in several layers. The key account managers in the exclusive Maybach centres throughout Europe as well as the sales advisors in the Mercedes-Benz sales and service outlets are happy to provide further information on this.
