The German luxury carmaker took its Maybach S-Class one step further into unattainable luxury with its debut a very limited edition that makes the standard sedan pale in comparison. Enter the Mercedes Maybach Sclass Haute Voiture.
Literally translated from French, high from people like haute couture is translated into “high” and automobile means “Car.” So we’re looking at the tallest car… collect? Fashion? That specific use of the term high Iis usually associated with very limited quantities and nothing you could or would wear every day. Ditto for this Mercedes-Maybach Haute Voiture. It’s not made or really suitable for everyday use, and there will be an extremely limited number of cars available for purchase: 150 total.
starting with the coloring, You will be able to recognize the Maybach Haute Voiture with its drama two-tone paintwork by a nautical dark blue above and rose gold-like shimmer color on the lower half. The rims also match the same shade of blue as the top of the car. But the real luxurious details lie in the car.
The interior Color scheme continues the elegance and tones of the exterior. Boucle, a woven yarn-like fabric covers the interior from the headrests to the door panels in the same blue and rose gold. The bouclé emphasizes the cCrystal white leather covering every touch point and seat surface, accented with matching blue contrast stitching.

The bags will be made from the same materials used in the interior and will be available in the Mercedes luxury store from early 2023 (that I didn’t know existed) called Maybach icons of luxury.
Mercedes has not published the prices for this Maybach Haute Voiture still, but considering that only 150 will be built and a normal Maybach S-The price starts at just under $185,000, the price for something even more limited and elegant will take up a godlike bank account to afford.
