The limited special edition Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Haute Voiture is a collector’s item for special occasions. First presented as a concept in May, the design has been further developed with new, carefully coordinated details. Mercedes-Maybach presented the new model for the first time during an event in Dubai on December 12, 2022. The vehicle was unveiled in the presence of VIP guests, media and influencers following a curated fashion show by local couture house Atelier Zuhra.
TAILOR-MADE DESIGN INSPIRED BY HAUTE COUTURE
In line with the Haute Voiture concept model, the exterior of the production vehicle is characterized by an exclusive two-tone paint finish: a combination of nautical blue metallic in the upper section and a light, shimmering rosé tone in the lower section, as well as rims in nautical blue metallic. An additional highlight is the animated environment projection. When you open the doors, animated Mercedes-Maybach patterns appear through LCD technology, elegantly illuminating both the front and rear entry areas.
The exterior color tones are echoed by the use of dark nautical blue and rose gold tones in the -interior of the vehicle, complemented by elements in crystal white and glossy opal white. The interior testifies to the greatest attention to detail and perfectly underlines the inspiration of haute couture. A high-quality fashion-inspired bouclé fabric is a common thread throughout the model. The fabric is in shades of blue, beige, rose gold and gold and is also found in the seat covers and cushions as an additional detail. Accents of crystal white leather on the consoles, in the doors and with the side cushions embrace the passengers. The doormats are made of linen and mohair. Rose gold-colored champagne goblets blend harmoniously with the overall feel in the spacious rear compartment, as does a haute-voiture plaque in the door trim. The blue-tinted leather piping in the consoles is also new.
MBUX VISUALIZES THE FEELING OF CATWALK GLAMOUR
The MBUX infotainment system picks up on the special exclusivity of the interior. Sparkling glitter clouds and a multitude of accents in shimmering rose gold express the catwalk atmosphere. In the profile selection menu, the driver is greeted with a magnolia blossom and sparkling particles. Twelve different avatars are adorned with noble accessories and elegantly dressed, for example in a tuxedo, tailcoat or evening gown.
