The Maybach is back.

Mercedes-Maybach Pullman

Mercedes-Benz will be rolling out the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman in Geneva next month to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Pullman Mercedes-Benz 600 and make all lowly rental limos look like hand-me-down station wagons.

The 21′ long, decked out S-Class has four seats behind the partition, where passengers can face each other, or the Pullman can be ordered without the rear-facing seats for even more room. These may be the nicest seats in any car, as they are extremely adjustable, reclinable, and even have calf support and extra cushions in the headrests. Of course, leather seating comes standard, although the leather treatment extends to the headliner, door frames, and seat consoles. The headliner also comes with a clock, speedometer, and displays the outside temperature should you be unfortunate enough to leave the posh interior comfort of the Pullman.

Since you don’t buy a Mercedes-Maybach Pullman to drive it, your chauffeur will have a twin turbocharged V12 generating 523 horsepower at their disposal. If your chauffeur is annoying you, or you need to devise your next evil scheme in privacy, you can raise the glass partition electronically and switch it from transparent to opaque. An 18.5″ monitor can also be lowered in front of the partition, and the limo comes with your choice of two Burmester surround sound systems.

If you’ve got a price on your head, you can even order an armored one.

The limousine starts at $566,922 and deliveries will start at the beginning of next year. Mercedes-Benz isn’t sure if they’ll sell this Maybach Pullman in the United States yet, which must be very upsetting to Rick Ross and his Maybach Music Group record label, but the next best things are probably the extended wheelbase Rolls-Royce Phantom, which is a bargain at “just” $298,900, or the Bentley Mulsanne at a tad under $300k.
