2017 Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet

Last week I checked out the unfortunate CL550 Cabriolet that made no sense to me in a number ways. Today, we have something that in practice is very similar to that car, but totally on the other end of the spectrum when it comes to quality. This is the Mercedes-Maybach S650 Cabriolet. The ultra-luxury S-Class convertible that rivals the Rolls-Royce Dawn in everything, including price. This Maybach S650 Cabriolet is a S65 AMG Cabriolet that keeps all of its power and adds another level of luxury and most importantly for this car, exclusivity. Just 300 of these cars will be produced by Mercedes and just 75 of them coming to North America. But for this price tag, is it worth it?

This Maybach is no cheap car. It’s listed for $350,000 and that isn’t too far from off from the MSRP of $337,625. That’s nearly $125,000 more than the S65 AMG. What does that $125,000 buy you over the S65? A different front bumper, a different set of wheels, some special paint, and the biggest thing being a totally different interior full of quilted and cross-stitched leather. Is all that worth $125,000? Of course not. You know what is worth $125,000 to the people who buy mid-six figure cars? The exclusivity. There are 75 of these cars in North America so unless you live in the greater Los Angeles area or maybe the Hamptons, chances are you aren’t going to see another one of these rolling around. Compare that to the Dawn, which there are 111 of them for sale on AutoTrader alone, and there is your extra $125,000. This car isn’t about performance figures or new technology, it is about spending a ton of money on something that others can’t. That is why you buy a Maybach S650 Cabriolet. Let’s just hope these don’t depreciate like the prior Maybachs.

  1. What a horrible car. I so hope BMW and Audi never go down this road of making gawd awful poser cars for the Paris Hilton crowd.

  2. This car IS beautiful and would be worth the money to anyone who could afford it.

    I’ve driven the S65 version of this very car and can tell you, it’s a driving experience unlike anything else.

  3. It may an interesting driving experience, but Lordy is that car ugly.


  4. Very nice 2000-ish Toyota Solara! Way to go, MB! And to think I have been thinking that your company was replaced by body snatchers around 1995.

  5. Nothing depreciates faster than a German luxury car – I am pretty sure we’ll see one of these selling for under $50k in a few years.

  6. Oh yes. This car’s value with drop like bomb. A friend just picked up a 2003 S55 AMG. It was a “designo” package of some sort, meaning crazy money for exclusive interior work. The sticker was $196K, and he just picked it up for $6500. But, first thing that goes wrong with that car may cost $10K to fix.

  7. The Toyota Solara comment is perfect. Well done.

  8. Awful especially those wheels looks like cheap ones off tire rack

  9. My first thought on seeing that fat ass. Toyota Solara.

  10. If you’ve not had the opportunity to see these in person, I mean really behold the car, I wouldn’t fault any of you for those opinions. Once you know the car, it’s hard not to be a fan.
