2011 Maybach 62 – Click either image for high-res image gallery

Reports of Maybach's demise may have been slightly exaggerated – for the time being, anyway. The ultra-premium Daimler brand has released updated versions of its range, which is essentially the same vehicle with different configurations.

For MY2011, the Maybach 57, 57S, 62 and 62S feature a handful of cosmetic, mechanical and interior equipment upgrades. The exterior benefits from a new grille (now different between the standard and S models), hood, tail lights and door mirrors, which – in addition to refreshing the limo's looks – also reduces wind noise for a quieter ride. Underneath the new hood, meanwhile, Daimler has optimized the V12 engine for marginally reduced emissions and fuel consumption, and while the standard engine stays pegged at 542 horsepower, the S version gets an 18-horse boost to 630.

Inside there's a partition to separate passengers from chauffeur, and the reclining seats previously available only on the longer 62 model can now be fitted on the passenger side in the rear of the 57 as well. The 62 can be fitted with an electro-chromatic tinting glass roof panel, and customers can also specify a 19-inch rear screen instead of the individual 9.5-inch monitors, on which they can view camera feeds from around the vehicle. The perfume atomizer from the Zeppelin model can also be ordered on the rest of the range now as well, and there's available wireless internet and seat piping either braided or embedded with Swarovski crystals.

The revised Maybach range debuts this Friday at the Beijing Motor Show, where Bentley is also presenting a pair of special editions, Volkswagen its new Phaeton and Audi the long-wheelbase A8 L. If we didn't know better, we'd think the Chinese had a thing for limos. Make the jump for a promo video.

      The new Audi A8 offers similiar style of rear passenger seating. Heck, even the new Toyota Avalon has adjustable rear passenger seats.

      M-B should have totally redesigned the Maybach years ago. The rear end of the current S class looks a heck of a lot like the Maybach rear end. What were they thinking !?!

      Say what you will about BMW, but at least Phantom and the new Ghost look nothing like a 7 series.

      where are those crickets chirping? ohh... maybach showrooms.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I thought they were shutting down the brand in a few years...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Not classy at all.

      "seat piping ... with Swarovski crystals". That's not luxury, that's tacky.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Isn't that what most Autoblog readers want? More? So tell me, Alex, what is "luxury"?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Soo basically it's exactly the same as the old Maybach that no one liked in the first place. Good job.

      What a bizarre video to watch...is she a high class prostitute? A business woman? Wouldn't some dude showing you his car's aroma atomizer really creep you the hell out?!

      you know we've lost the economic edge when all the luxury flagships are now unveiled in China. I guess we buy their cheap stuff, and they buy our (in our case Caddy & Buick) luxury stuff.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I was thinking the same thing.... special models for China among high end brands, all these luxury and exotics getting unveiled in Beijing... the time indeed has changed.

      Why does luxury have to be so ass-ugly?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Yuck. I'd buy an LS460L instead and put the $275000 leftover towards a new 458 Italia.

      I actually like these stupid, pointless cars - the 57S, anyway.

      KILL THIS BRAND ALREADY.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Maybe this is Daimler's way of asking Geely... "hey, ya interested in another brand?"
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's already going to be phased out later.

        I get the feeling that Daimler was thrifty about this facelift since it's dying - the grill just looks so cheap.
