Mercedes-Maybach SL, the first Maybach based on an AMG model?


At the presentation of the new Mercedes tactic, Ola Kallenius, Mercedes CEO, also announced a Maybach variant for the AMG SL: the Mercedes-Maybach SL. It would be the initially time a Maybach edition seems on an AMG product.

As is acknowledged, the recent Mercedes-AMG SL is developed by AMG and has no counterpart in the Mercedes array. Maybach variations at the moment only exist for the S-Class and GLS which are belonging to the Mercedes typical array.

At the presentation of the new Mercedes approach, Ola Kallenius announced the premiere of a Maybach variation for the AMG SL. Definitely, the Mercedes-Maybach SL will not have a 4-cylinder variation as in the circumstance of the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, the most high priced 4-cylinder model in the entire world, with a value of in excess of 118,000 euros.

We think that the upcoming Mercedes-Maybach SL will certainly have a V12 engine below the hood for the reason that Mercedes is sure by custom. The past three generations R129, R230 and R231 have experienced variations with 6-litre V12 engines. In addition, the V12 engine has survived beneath the bonnet of the present-day Mercedes-Maybach S 680 4Matic in which it is mixed for the initially time with all-wheel drive and a 9-velocity automated transmission.

The final Mercedes SL with a V12 was the R231 SL 65 AMG in 2018 with the exact V12 from the S 680 4Matic acquiring 612 HP. A feasible Mercedes-Maybach SL 680 4Matic could compete with the Rolls Royce Dawn.

At the similar time, main designer Gorden Wagener posted two photographs on Instagram:
– A segment of the front of the foreseeable future Maybach SL with grille on the hood and bodywork painted in two hues. New is the Maybach symbol printed various occasions on the bonnet.
– A profile of a luxury roadster. But with the raised rear stop it seems far more like a speedster. And it does not have the star on the hood, which implies it may not be a Maybach model. What could this be? It could be a spinoff of the SL to be provided in the new MYTHOS Series.
MYTHOS Series is a assortment of collector products that will be section of the Best-Stop Luxury classification. And in this model the V12 engine would match like a glove for the reason that exclusivity goes hand in hand with a noble engine like the V12.
