The Mercedes-Benz Pullman makes limousines cool again

It’s not just the Maybach that’s returned from the pages of history – Mercedes-Benz is now bringing back the legendary name of Pullman. The top-of-the-range S-Class will debut at March’s Geneva Salon as the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman...

It was the limousine of presidents and of kings – the Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman. Now the elongated state limousine returns: six and a half metres long – and about half a million euros to buy – the new Pullman will be the most luxurious vehicle produced by the marque, and a serious competitor for Rolls-Royce. The Pullman is not only a good metre longer, but also 10cm higher than the normal S-Class, offering in-car luxury that is more in line with a first-class jet. When it comes to the engine, customers can choose between a six-litre V12 with 530HP and 830Nm of torque; and a 4.7-litre twin-turbo V8 with 455HP and 700Nm. The limousine will debut in early March at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
