Mercedes-Maybach Celebrates Anniversary with Limited-Edition Releases

Getting to a hundred years is a big deal, and the Mercedes-Maybach knows this. Which is why it has chosen to celebrate this important milestone with a limited-edition S680 4MATIC sedan and a special-edition GLS 600 SUV.

Dubbed the Edition 100, these centenary models take the Mercedes-Maybach’s mark of tech-infused elegance to a new level. Both models share sufficient features with their ‘ordinary’ counterparts, but take on additional attributes that make them truly exceptional.

For example, the centenary model has the same 6.0-litre V-12 bi-turbo engine as the 680 4MATIC sedan released earlier this year. Its nine-speed automatic sends power to all four wheels and can generate a maximum of 621 hp while moving from 0-96 km/h in just 4.4 seconds.

The GLS 600 Edition 100 is also similar to its ordinary version. It comes with a V8 engine that can produce up to 557hp (this is higher than the non-special edition that produces 550hp) and can move from 0-96 km/h in 4.8 seconds.

But this is where the similarity stops.

Both Edition 100 models come in a hand-painted, two-tone Cirrus Silver/Nautical Blue colourway and will ride on a set of forged wheels finished in dark chrome. The interior of both vehicles will also be covered in a unique Crystal White and Silver Grey Pearl quilted leather covering accented with Piano Black trim and pinstripe detailing. The ‘Edition 100’ badge will feature prominently throughout.

Prices have not yet been announced, but both the Mercedes-Maybach Edition 100 680 4MATIC sedan and GLS 600 are expected to ship in 2022 with orders starting in the fourth quarter of this year. They will both be limited to 100 units only, and would both come with a complimentary unique branded car cover and special case meant to store keys and the auto’s paperwork.
