Mercedes Maybach S-Class 2021 made its official global debut on Thursday in a bid to renew its rivalry against the likes of Bentley Flying Spur V8 and Rolls-Royce Ghost. The absolute pinnacle of luxury from the German car maker, the Maybach S-Class 2021 raises the bar when it comes to sheer opulence and now promises an even more pampered drive and ride option to the rich and famous.

The wheelbase, for starters, has been stretched by around seven inches for extra room for passengers plonked plush on dedicated adjustable bucket seats. The backrests here can be adjusted within a range of 19 and 44 degrees while feet can be propped up on a cushioned and retractable rest. Every single seat inside this seven-star property on wheels offers multiple massage options, heating and cooling functionalities. The footrests for the passengers at the back now offers massage for calf muscles while the armrests and door panels are heated.
