Miss Your Chance For A Maybach S650 Cabrio? This Dealer Has Two 7
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Maybach, Mercedes S-Class Cabrio, Mercedes-Maybach, Middle East on 01 7th, 2018

The Mercedes name carries with it a lot of clout. Maybach all the more so. The S650 Cabriolet, then, might be considered the Mercedes of Mercedes – or the Maybach of Maybachs.

Based on the S-Class convertible, the S650 was a highly exclusive set of wheels. It packed the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine from the AMG S65 into an even more luxurious package.

Only 300 were made, leaving the overwhelming likelihood that you didn’t get your hands on one. But if you missed your opportunity the first time around, there are still some to be found on the second-hand market. And this dealer has two.

Listed by Deals on Wheels out of Dubai are two examples of the ultimate drop-top Benz: one in red with a deep brown leather interior, the other in black with red leather. So if you like the color red, it may be a tough choice – both presented in brand-new condition with only delivery miles on the odometer.

Even tougher, though, is the asking price: 1,699,000 Emirati dollars, or roughly $462k at current exchange rates. Of course if that strikes you as pocket change, you could always buy both.

This Is (And May Remain) The Only Maybach S650 Cabrio On Forgiato Alloys 17
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Forgiato, Maybach, Mercedes S-Class Cabrio, Mercedes-Maybach on 12 17th, 2017

Mercedes has gone to considerable lengths to differentiate the Maybach S650 Cabriolet from “lesser” S-Class convertibles. But the owner of those one has set his apart even further by adding a set of custom wheels.

Of the 300 examples to be made (and 75 allocated to the United States), this is the only example riding on a set of Forgiato alloys.

These Tec 2.2 wheels from Forgiato’s Tecnica series feature a brushed finish (in contrast to all the chrome on the Maybach) with spokes and bolts painted to match the drop-top’s red bodywork.

Further setting it apart are yellow brake calipers and windows tinted with film from SunTek. The modifications were applied by Herm G of Road Show International out in Atlanta, which happens to be the home town of Mercedes-Benz USA. We don’t know whose ride it is, but something tells us it probably belongs to a baller from one of the Georgia metropolis’ major sports franchises.

Whoever it belongs to, would you considering it sacrilege to mess with the package Daimler perfected, or a no-brainer considering how much the owner must already have spent on the car? That’s probably a matter of taste more than anything, so check it out in the images below and sound off in the comments section.
