Maybach 62 S - First Look

When a `regular' 62 isn't special enough

Feb 22, 2007

Maybach is adding a fourth variant to its line-up--the newly developed 62 S. The S stands for Special and Maybach has incorporated a number of specially developed features. Power output has also been enhanced with 612 hp provided by a Mercedes-AMG-enhanced 6.0-liter V12 engine, 62 hp more than the Maybach 62. Via a twin turbocharger and a water-type intercooler, maximum torque is 737 lb-ft, available between 2000 and 4000 rpm. Zero to 62 mph is completed in 5.2 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. A plate on the cover bears the signature of the technician who assembled the engine by hand. The car has a new front end with a redesigned radiator grille, new 20-inch wheels and modified light clusters. Like the 57 S, the new 62 S has single-tone paintwork in black or silver, both of which are available exclusively for the S models. Discreet 62 S lettering adorns the front wings beneath the A-pillars and the trunk lid. The Maybach 62 S is primarily designed to be chauffeur-driven and, of course, it gets pretty sumptuous in the back.

Marcel Lech used to think 450 hp was all he needed to enjoy his Supra. Instead, he ended up with nearly 1,000 hp that, at best, gets used, weather permitting, only a few of days and just 2 seasons out of the year.

A hot front-wheel-drive, turbocharged hatch that comes with the right kind of balance: not as "grown up" as a VW GTI, but not as aesthetically loud as a Civic Type R.

It almost feels rare to find an FD without an LS these days but there are still people like Ranj Jaaf who appreciate the joys (and woes) of the rotary Mazda intended for their RX-7.

Veterans and newbs, die-hard gearheads, and total derps take note: This street-driven, 518-whp Evo IX is a fine example of what the tuning scene is all about.
