The New Maybach 57 S: High-End Luxury Saloon with Impressive Performance

Source: DaimlerChrysler | Published: Tue Sep 27, 2005

(continued from above)

The extra 45 hp output compared with the Maybach 57 is provided by an enhanced version of the 6-litre V12 biturbo engine developed in cooperation with Mercedes-AMG. This powerplant delivers breathtaking acceleration, propelling the Maybach 57 S from 0 to 60 mph in just 5 seconds.

The 57 S extends the Maybach model range with a car whose combination of contemporary luxury, the ultimate in comfort and state-of-the-art high-performance technology embodies the perfection which is characteristic of the brand. The market launch of the Maybach 57 S is scheduled for this autumn.

Maybach 57 S Features a New Twelve-Cylinder Powerplant

The new, even more powerful twelve-cylinder powerplant in the Maybach 57 S has a displacement of six liters and - thanks to biturbo technology and an air/water intercooler - a maximum output of 612 hp. The impressive maximum torque of 738 lb-ft (electronically limited) is available across a broad engine speed range (between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm). As a result, Maybach drivers who favor a sporty driving style can always call on prodigious reserves of power. Every twelve-cylinder engine features a redesigned cover with a plate bearing the serial number of the unit and the signature of the Mercedes-AMG specialist who built the entire engine by hand in accordance with AMG's traditional "one man, one engine" philosophy.

A combination of cutting-edge technology and a whole host of well-thoughtout details developed by the Mercedes-AMG specialists forms the basis for the out-standing performance of the Maybach 57 S. The forged pistons, for example, which are made from a special material which is extremely resistant to temperature and pressure, have an oil-spray cooling system with a separate individual nozzle for each piston. A particularly powerful oil pump and a large oil cooler ensure that all lubrication points are supplied with oil - even in highly demanding conditions. The housings of the compressor and turbine in both turbochargers as well as the turbine and compressor wheels are designed for a maximum charge pressure of 1.5 bar.

The modified, firmer suspension set-up which the Maybach development team have created for the 57 S perfectly reconciles differing requirements. It ensures that the engine's impressive performance and particularly high dynamic potential can be put down on the road safely and reliably at all times. But it is also able to maintain the extremely high level of ride comfort which is offered by all Maybach luxury Saloons and which is characteristic of the brand.

Exterior Design Emphasizes Dynamic Character

Discreet and tasteful exterior visual highlights emphasize the distinctly dynamic character of the new Maybach 57 S. These include an exclusive monochrome color scheme featuring special black or silver paint finishes, a modified front section with an enhanced radiator grille and revised light units, a discreet "57 S" legend on the front wing below the A-pillar and on the boot lid, as well as striking new 20-inch spoked wheels. At the rear, the two redesigned tailpipes of the exhaust system are integrated in a revised rear apron which signals the high-performance capabilities of the 57 S. Even when the new Maybach is stationary, its dynamic and elegant presence clearly identifies it as an exclusive luxury saloon with outstanding performance - characteristics which make it a compelling choice for the sportier owner-driver.
