Maybach: Extended Range Of Requested Equipment - Customised Business Package | Part Three

Maybach 57


Customised business package

For some time now, a special business package has been available as an ex-works equipment option for laptop users. This innovative Maybach office-on-wheels solution, which includes mobile Internet access and a printer, can be configured individually in consultation with the customer. Moreover, Bluetooth wireless technology enables the customer’s laptop to be integrated into the vehicle. The computer can be set down on one of the fold-out tables located between the rear seats or placed in one of the multi-functional storage compartments on the back of the front seats when not being used.

Discretion and security through a partition and a special protection system

Customers who place the highest priority on discretion can order a special vertically adjustable glass partition for the Maybach 62 - as long as this is permitted in the country in which the vehicle is operated. The electro-transparent glass partition can also be set to block visibility to the rear of the vehicle with just the push of a button. In addition, Maybach Guard, also based on the Maybach 62, provides special protection against attacks on the vehicle from the outside. As such, it meets the so-called High Protection standards as laid out in European Protection Class B4.

Alternative rear seating configuration

Maybach offers those customers who wish to travel with up to three passengers in the rear seats an alternative seating configuration featuring a third seat in the centre of the rear of the vehicle. This variant retains the two luxurious individual rear seats and replaces the standard centre console with a third seat. The back of this additional seat is arranged in a manner that guarantees a consistently high level of seating comfort for all three passengers. In those vehicles fitted with a third rear seat, the devices normally located in the centre console for operating and adjusting the curtains, lights and entertainment facilities are replaced by a compact palmtop equipped with Bluetooth technology. The wireless ‘remote control’ is located in a storage compartment in the back of the front passenger seat.

Variety right from the start: nine body variants

The Maybach 62 top model, with a length of 6.17 metres, and the Maybach 57, with a length of 5.73 metres, form the basis. Alternatively, the Maybach 62 can be ordered as the Maybach Guard fitted with a special protection system. In addition to the completely closed version, customers can choose between a solar roof or sliding sunroof, each of which can be installed in the usual manner in front, or alternatively in the rear. An electro-transparent panorama glass roof is also available. As such, Maybach customers can choose the right design for their desired limousine from a total of nine different body variants.
