Camouflaged Mercedes Maybach S-Class prototype spottedApril 18, 2021
A camouflaged prototype of the new generation Mercedes Maybach S-Class luxury limousine has been spotted at the Nürburgring race track. According to reports from insiders, engineers at the German automaker are testing the powerful V12 engine under heavy load.
Which car would you drive to the Nürburgring? Obviously, one of the last on your list is the luxury limousine Mercedes-Benz Maybach S-Class. However, it was this car that was spotted on the famous track. Why is Mercedes-Benz testing an ultra-luxury sedan at the Nurburgring when future owners will never take their luxury chauffeured barges to the track?
The upcoming Maybach S-Class was recently announced with the upcoming Maybach 100th Anniversary Celebration.
This unique super-long Maybach S-class, codenamed Z223, will become a rarity in the modern automotive industry.
So why go to the Nurburgring in a Maybach S-Class? There are speculations that German engineers are testing their new V12 engine, which should work in extreme conditions. Since the V12 engine is absent from most of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the only choice for the test cars was the long-wheelbase Maybach S-Class, which will ultimately receive the powerful V12.
It has long been rumored that the new generation of the Maybach S-Class will be powered by a turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine that will produce over 650 horsepower and impressive torque. This endangered V12 luxury sedan is becoming a rarity in this era of electric vehicles and hybrids, making the Maybach S-Class even more special and rare.
