This car is one of the ultra-luxury cars available. It has a long wheelbase and is considered as an ultra-luxury version to the next generation Mercedes Benz S-class version. This lavish and well-stretched vehicle is to replace the Maybach 57 and 62. You will find a well stood out distinguished Pullman in this car as compared to the regular S class. There will be replacements and modifications done in different aspects of the car like the headlights, work done on the brightwork and mostly the protective armor. All this is taken down to the history of the company, all what people know about Mercedes Benz, it is the 600 grosser and is loved by people from different parts of the globe. One of the reasons why there is so much buzz revolving around this offering from Mercedes is because this lets the company pull up its position on the market. This next generation S class car is the perfect way to hold a strong spot amongst the world’s best luxury car manufacturers on the globe. Pullman is certainly seen as a perfect way to recapture the brand value.
Pullman is using the S-class platform form the next generation which makes it a little more stretched. The features include the longer wheelbase which is going to be beneficial for most passengers. The latest SL roadster comes with a lot of aluminum usage at the same time usage of materials that are light in weight. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the buyers get the rear wheel drive platform from this car. The standard offering from Mercedes, which is the Luxo-cruiser, comes with the optional all-wheel drive option. At the same time, it is not very likely to see Pullman making changes to bring an all four wheel traction.
With Pullman, you can find a 5.5 liter of twin turbo V-12, also a 4.6 liter of twin turbo V-8 too. This is the possible offering that we know off, this car seems to be more focused on the offering for the passengers and not as much of the drivers and in addition to this, there will be no offering of a AMG version.
As far as the competition goes, you can find it coming from Rolls Royce Ghost, Audi A8L, BMW 7 series, Bentley Continental Flying Spur etc.
As far as the question of what may go wrong arises, some areas need attention. To begin with, one of the prime problems is the fact that there is a whole lot of similarity between the next generation and the regular S class offering. In addition to this, the cost is going twice as much, which doesn’t really let the buyers know as to why unless they get into the depths of the offerings. If you analyse this with the Bentley or even Rolls Royce, chances of this model failing to nail it on the market are high as it may not be able to create an as good market for the extra luxury vehicle as the other brands have done.
The reports suggest that the S-class Pullman will not arrive until 2015. The price is going to get hefty, there will be an upward mark in the price and it could beyond the current price, which is of $162,975.
