Mercedes-Maybach Marks 100 Years With Special Paint and Accessories

Mercedes celebrates 100 years of the luxury brand's luxury brand

  • Edition 100 models limited to just 100 worldwide

  • Offer special badging, unique paintwork and interiors


Mercedes is marking 100 years of Maybach, even if the brand wasn’t up and running all of those years. To celebrate Wilhelm and Karl (the father and son whose name is the badge), two special versions of the S-Class and GLS Mercedes-Maybach models will be made, each one limited to just 100.

The Maybachs were long a part of the Daimler company. Father Wilhelm developed the first Mercedes, the company said, in 1901. The Maybach company made its first own vehicle in 1921, called the W 3. It was the first German production car with four-wheel brakes. The brand became part of the Daimler portfolio with Karl Maybach’s death in 1960, where it remained dormant until 2002.

So what do you get to celebrate 100 years of the luxury badge? Start with two-tone paint, silver over nautical blue, and Edition 100 badges on the rear pillars.

If that doesn’t feel sufficiently special, there are matching badges on the hub caps, and the forged wheels wear a new grey finish. On the inside, crystal white and silver pearl leathers are combined for a design specific to the Edition 100. More Edition 100 badges will be found in the various storage compartments of the vehicles as well as in illuminated panels.

Lastly? A special car cover as well as a handmade leather file-size case that is meant to store keys and paperwork. As Mercedes says, this will “further underline the exclusivity of the edition.”

Of course, more opportunities for anniversary specialness abound, including a diamond-studded fountain pen as well as a champagne flute offered by Robbe and Berking.

Order books open the fourth quarter of this year, and the vehicles will start arriving at the beginning of 2022. As for the price, if you have to ask, then you know the rest.
