New details are starting to emerge about the S-Class Maybach, ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Set to slot above the S600, the S-Class Maybach will feature a familiar design but will be approximately 10 inches longer than the long-wheelbase model. The extra room will be devoted to rear seat passengers and the extra length will be easily noticed thanks to longer rear doors and a revised C-pillar.

The styling changes will continue in the cabin as Autoweek is reporting the car will feature exclusive technology, reclining rear seats and "enhanced infotainment features for rear seat passengers." We can also expect a greater range of trim and upholstery choices to appeal to discerning customers.

Power will be provided by a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine that develops 530 PS (390 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft) of torque. There could also be a high-performance variant which uses the S65 AMG's twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine that develops 630 PS (463 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.

The entry-level model is expected to cost approximately $200,000 and it could eventually be joined by an armored version that offers VR9-level ballistic protection.
