The Maybach 57 S is intended as the 'sporty' model in the Maybach
range. The 57 S was designed to be driven by the owners as often
as they might be chauffered, unlike the limo-esque Maybach 62
and slightly smaller Maybach 57.
The Maybach 57 S is powered by a 6 litre twin turbo V12 developing
over 600 horsepower and 738 ft-lbs of torque, giving the car
an electronically limited top speed of 170 mph and a 0-60 mph
time of just 5.0 seconds.
Differences between the standard Maybach 57 and the 57 S include
a modified front end with a strikingly redesigned radiator and
lighting units, attractive 20-inch spoked wheels, discreet "57
S" lettering on the wing beneath the A-pillars and on the
boot lid, and single-tone paintwork in the black or silver colour
tone reserved for the 57 S model. At the rear a redesigned apron
with two new, trapezoidal exhaust tailpipes subtly indicates
the high performance potential of the 57 S.
