Mercedes, for the 2019 model year, is taking new steps to ensure that the Maybach version of the S-Class stands out just a little bit more than the mere standard version. However, the 2018 Maybach S560 starts $168,600 while the 2018 Maybach S650 starts at $198,700.
The Mercedes-AMG G63 will arrive in Australia later this year.
Maybach fans will recognize the grille from 2016's Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept auto, whose vertical slats were inspired by the pinstripes of a suit and will likely become a staple of Maybach models going forward.
Buyers can opt for the AMG Night Package, which gives the G63 a more sinister look.More news: Red Gerard reaches snowboard slopestyle final, Chris Corning just misses

The revisions include a number of subtle styling upgrades, including reprofiled bumpers with added chrome highlights, new headlights and a new diamond-pattern grille insert for AMG Line models.
The interiors feature leather, carbon-fibre, and metal trim pieces. That makes this new vehicle exceed the length and wheelbase of traditional S-Class sedans by almost 10 inches in both dimensions. Edition 1 cars will be equipped with red contrast stitching on the dashboard, seats, centre console and doorpads. The G63 has been equipped with the tuner's 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, the same engine fitted to the regular G-Class. While the present engine is capable of pumping out 254 bhp of peak power and 620 Nm of peak torque, new motor will churn out 282 bhp of peak power and 600 Nm of peak torque. If you tell your driver to step on it, you'll hit 60 miles per hour time in 4.6 seconds, according to Mercedes. It gets mild revisions both inside and out while the sedan in new avatar also packs a host of new technologies. This engine is mated to an AMG-developed nine-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased (40:60) 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Front and rear legroom, shoulder room and elbow room have all been improved. For the first time, the front axle has an independent, double wishbone suspension mounted to the ladder-type frame, while a rigid axle with a five-link suspension is used at the rear.
Following the tweet, Mercedes-Benz USA also joined the party adding a its own official images, though full-body camouflage keeps most of the finer details at bay.
