It's open season on rumors concerning the upcoming Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman. With Maybach deader than disco, the German automaker is undoubtedly searching for a suitable ultra-luxury competitor to the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce, and we've already head that may translate into the resurrection of the legendary Pullman name.
Autobild reports the vehicle will span a little over 21 feet in length and get its power from a smooth 650-horspower V12 engine. The publication isn't calling out any sources at the moment, but the article claims there will be a total of six versions of the Pullman when the model debuts and that each of them will ride on the Mercedes-Benz rear-wheel architecture.

Buyers who don't need enough power to pull down a house will be able to purchase a four-cylinder turbo-diesel variant with a more modest 204 horsepower, and Autobild reports Mercedes-Benz is currently working on two hybrid variants, as well. Of course, with no sources names in the article and the Pullman so far from production, we'd advise taking everything here with a land-yacht sized grain of salt. Head over to Autobild for a look at a rendering of the vehicle.

      Maybach's problem was there was no reason to spend more money for a badly styled S600. Hopefully the new Pullman will have some of the interior elegance of the originals.

      Still unsure why they don't make Maybach their in house ultra luxury arm ala AMG. Have it limited to say 3-4 models of Mercedes thats it and have every bit of interior be custom made and selectable. Have its main goal be luxury and refinement where as AMG is power and performance.

        You sound like a stupid kid on the shore, mocking 6 foot waves. I don't see any major flaws in the drawing. It always looks easiest, to those who have absolutely no clue.

      "mooted" or "muted"? "Mooted" would mean "made irrelevant"...

      this certainly has success written all over it, doesn't it? a choice of over 600 horsepower, or 204 horsepower. and I'm sure this tank will weigh over 7,000 pounds. can you imagine the garbage poor Chrysler would be turning out if Daimler was still their masters? perhaps the styling cues of the Caliber would be applied across the line, and CVTs for one ton diesel trucks.

        Autoblog have actually been a bit lazy and made a mistake here... The Pullman is only going to be available as a 600. The STANDARD S-Class will be available in 6 different engine guises, with the S600 (The Pullman) being the flagship.

      I really just can't understand this. Daimler spent a tremendous amount of money building the Maybach brand, which I think has built up a valuable image as a luxury car brand in the last 15 years. Sure, sales were terrible but using the Pullman name and pushing out a bunch of Girls-Night-Out stretch limos isn't really going to help Daimler increase its share of the ultraluxury market. They should keep the name and put out a car that competes directly with the Bentley and RR models that sell the best, namely the shorter wheel-base "driver's cars" instead of the long "chauffeur cars" they've been putting out.

      Over 21ft? That's one LONG car. A Chevy Suburban is just under 19 feet.

      mercedes is hiding some interesting new lines in the rear 3/4. notice the buldge is fake, given the inset of the fuel opening. also notice the geometry of the trunk lid...
