By Paul Joseph

The all-new Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet has been unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Motor Show to great fanfare.

Available in a limited edition of 300 units, the new model is billed as “the ultimate in open-air exclusivity”, featuring high-end exterior and interior appointments along with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine under the bonnet.

Some of its lavish components include a new front bumper, 20-inch Maybach forged alloy wheels in ‘bi-chromatic’ finish along with puddle lamps and the flashing Maybach logo that comes to life as soon as you open the doors.

Additionally, the interiors boast a full-leather trimmed look with diamond quilting in the seat side bolsters. Three colour options will be available for the American market: the Zircon Red with a porcelain and black interior and a black top, Cote d’Azur Blue with a porcelain and saddle interior and a beige top, and Designo Diamond White with a porcelain and Yacht Blue interior with a dark blue top.

The Maybach logo also adorns the front side of the seats, the back of the head restraints while also finding its way in the cover of the centre console. Other features include the Aircap wind deflector, Airscarf neck-level heaters, and Swarovski crystal headlights.

Purchasers of the car will also receive an exclusive Maybach luggage set, diamond-quilted fabric car covers with an embroidered Maybach logo, along with a nappa leather keyring that matches the vehicle’s interior color

The 2017 Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet is priced at $427,000.
