High-End Luxury, the Maybach Way: 62S Zeppelin

Source: Maybach | Published: Fri Aug 06, 2010

(continued from the previous page)

The Maybach Zeppelin's newly designed 20-inch wheels in a Chrome Shadow finish complete the picture. These were first painted with a black undercoat, before having a silver topcoat applied using an elaborate painting process that causes the tone to gradually increase in darkness from the outside in.

The streamlined exterior mirrors, which produce even less wind noise, are new to Maybach. They have a more angular design and are separated from the door frame by a slender arm, giving them a more expressive look. They also feature an enlarged mirror surface together with integral indicators in the shape of a horizontal "V" for even greater perceptual safety.

The curving "ZEPPELIN" lettering that appears below the distinctive double "M" emblem on the radiator grille and on the boot lid instantly gives away the elite status of the new Maybach Zeppelin.

Finest-Quality Leather

The new Maybach Zeppelin is a car for connoisseurs, as is immediately apparent from its interior. Here, the luxurious combination of appointments in California beige and deep Stromboli black leathers form a delightful contrast. At the same time, the lustrous deep black tone of the leather harmonizes beautifully with the exquisite black piano lacquer finish of the trim elements. The precisely crafted contrasting topstitching in the dashboard and on the doors reinforces the Maybach Zeppelin's sense of exclusivity. The unique diamond quilting pattern on the seat cushions and backrests together with the black piping gives the opulently styled seats a character all of their own. Completing the luxurious cabin, the occupants' feet rest on genuine lambskin carpeting.

The limited-edition special models bear a number of discreet identifying markings in the interior too. The center console in the front, the partition screen that is available as an option for the Maybach Zeppelin 62, plus the silver champagne flutes included as standard are all marked with the lettering "MAYBACH ZEPPELIN", while the door sill panels as well as the sterling silver key ring are engraved with the word "ZEPPELIN".

A Maybach-Invented System for a Fine Interior Fragrance

Customers are also able to opt for an especially refined equipment detail that is exclusive to the Maybach Zeppelin - an imaginatively designed, extremely high-quality perfume atomizer, the only one of its kind in the world. It easily eclipses all previous efforts to produce something similar, both in terms of its visual appeal and its operation. Its sophisticated technology and premium fragrances create a unique aromatic experience in the Maybach Zeppelin's interior at the push of a button - stimulating the senses of the occupants not with an overpowering perfume but with a soft, delicate scent.

The system's core component is an internally illuminated Plexiglas sphere on the rear center console, into which Maybach Zeppelin owners can insert a vial of their preferred fragrance. A compressor then directs a gentle flow of air into the Plexiglas sphere, fanning the vial's perfume molecules into the vehicle interior.

The perfume atomizer can be activated either from the driver's seat or by means of a button in the rear center console, with an additional thumbwheel in the rear for sensitive aroma control. The chosen fragrance gently wafts into the passenger compartment within ten to twelve seconds. On models with a partition screen, only the passengers in the rear are able to activate the atomizer.

The aroma experts took the human sense of smell into consideration when designing the control mechanism. As the nose adjusts to smells in such a way that it no longer perceives them after a short while, the perfume atomizer switches off after about ten minutes. Once the system has switched off, the fragrance - which does not seep into the interior's materials or the occupants' clothes - quickly evaporates. Reactivating the atomizer later allows the experience to be enjoyed all over again.

Specially Developed Fragrances

The system comes supplied with two select fragrances, which have been exclusively developed for the Maybach by a renowned perfumer from global specialist Givaudan: one light and refreshing, the other slightly heavier and woodier.

Maybach Zeppelin owners can also use other fragrances, or even have one specially developed and enjoy the luxury of immersing themselves in their very own, personally designed aroma. The fragrance holders are easily interchangeable. The atomizer option includes a total of three artistically-designed vials, which are hand-blown by a well-known glass artist.

The elaborate, silent-running perfume atomizer system is a patented Maybach innovation.

The first Maybach Zeppelin models were delivered to U.S. customers in January 2010.
