The Mercedes-Maybach S600 will be sold alongside two additional versions, S500 and S400 MATIC.

Mercedes-Benz officially resurrected the Maybach name yesterday with an extra-long wheelbase S600 and now we have learned two additional versions will be offered: S500 and S400 4MATIC. The former is powered by a bi-turbo V8 4.7-liter engine developing 455 HP (335 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) while the latter gets a V6 3.0-liter motor with 333 HP (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) sent to an all-wheel drive system.

Sales chief Ola Kaellenius says pricing for the S600 variant with its +200mm extended wheelbase will be disclosed on December 18 and that it will be cheaper than the defunct Maybach 57. He was asked by the media whether there will be a successor for the Maybach 62 and his answer was "we shall see", but we already know a Pullman version is on the way.

There are also some talks about the GL (soon to become GLS) getting the same treatment but Kaellenius said for the moment there aren't any plans for a Maybach SUV.
