Mercedes is set to revive the Maybach moniker on an ultra-luxurious S-Class and a new report is indicating the name could be used on other models.

According to Motoring's sources, Mercedes wants to turn Maybach into an AMG-like sub-brand that focuses luxury instead of performance. While nothing is official, the company is reportedly considering Maybach variants of the MLC, GL and S-Class Coupe.

Mercedes' head of research and development, Dr Thomas Weber, declined to confirm the news but told the publication "There is still a good brand image linked to Maybach – so stay tuned to what we plan to do with this brand." The executive also hinted "You will see more in the months to come and maybe next year will be the year of our SUV offensive."
