The S-Class Cabriolet is plush enough for most - but not the one percenters of the world who demand even more luxury and exclusivity. So, Daimler will be unveiling a model that will suit them down to the ground – the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet. And from the teaser images, we reckon they’ll be very happy with it. And yes, we’re very envious of them.

Set to be revealed at the Los Angeles motor show this Wednesday, just 300 units are planned for production (how do we know? Er, there’s a small plaque on the centre tunnel that says so…) and with “S 650” in the name the model is likely to be powered by the biturbo 6.0-litre V12 and mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission but which should be tuned to make a tad more than 523 horsepower and 830Nm of torque that the S 600 Maybach saloon makes. We won’t know for sure until later in the week when all is revealed but what we do know about the newbie is its fuel consumption; Daimler has been quick to point out that it will drink 12 litres per 100km.

Even though the S 600 Maybach has a longer wheelbase than the S-Class, the new cabrio doesn’t appear to have been stretched; it may have the same length between the front and back axles as the S-Class convertible. We like the look of the chrome trim on the lower front air intake and as for the cabin, it’ll have a bespoke trim and lots of tasteful Maybach badging along with a Burmester sound system being one of the many technical highlights. Like we said, very envious…
