Maybach: Extended Range Of Requested Equipment - Gold Interior Highlights | Part Two

Maybach 57

Brilliant: gold rather than chrome interior

Maybach developers have also fulfilled a special customer wish in a concept vehicle for the Maybach Type 57 model by plating all chrome trimming with gold, more specifically with an extremely thin layer of 24-carat gold. This gold plating lends the Maybach limousine’s interior a particular brilliance that harmonises perfectly with the concept vehicle’s high-quality wood trim and Maybach leather. The rims were also painted with gold lacquer that matches the gold in the interior, with the paint being applied by way of a completely new, special process. The experience gained through this project has provided the Maybach specialists with the expertise required to be perfectly prepared for even the most exclusive customer demands in the future.

"Traditional Comfort" - independence and a high degree of comfort in design

Maybach has developed a further variant of the Type 57 limousine with regard to the interior design possibilities. The goal of the designers and technicians here was to utilise new and additional materials as well as alternative processing techniques in order to create a new interpretation of the luxury and comfort features typical of exclusive limousines. Such features include double-sewn seams in the vehicle’s leather seats and deep pile, lambskin carpeting, both traditional accessories for high-comfort, luxury limousines.

Personalisation in perfection

Typical special solutions requested by customers include family arms or initials in prominent locations in the Maybach’s interior. Maybach also offers on request - and not only to automobile enthusiasts and collectors - the possibility of integrating the relief-type double "M" Maybach emblem in the door trim leather as a means of expressing the owner’s special identification with the brand.

Moving in the right direction

A compass located in the rear of the vehicle and perfectly integrated into the nautical-type instrument cluster on the ceiling can be used by passengers at any time for orientation and information on which direction the vehicle is heading in. The compass may also be set up to point toward a specific direction - for example, the city which the passengers come from. This customised feature is especially useful in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where it actually originates from.

Exclusive and individual: personalised Maybach equipment options ex-works

Since the launch of the Maybach brand some two years ago, the official special equipment option programme that Maybach customers can choose from has been continually improved and expanded. A decisive factor in this process is a constant dialogue with Maybach customers, which enables the brand to gain knowledge about the new needs, demands and wishes of what is the most exclusive group of automobile customers in the world.
