A shot of the car’s interior badging suggests that only 300 examples of the car will be made – with many likely to go to international collectors.
Prices have yet to be revealed, but a significant premium over the S600, which costs from £170,610, is expected.
Although Mercedes-Benz has yet to provide any concrete details about the car, apart from its fuel consumption rating of 12L/100km, the S650 badge suggests that new car will use a version of the twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 currently employed in the S65 AMG models.
In AMG trim, the V12 motor pumps out 463kW of power and 1000Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The car will be a 2018 model and is likely to go on sale in the global markets later next year. Considering the Mercedes-Maybach is already on sale in India, it is possible that Stuttgart-based carmaker might allot a few units for the Indian market as well.
