Both engines come mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox, with power being channelised to all four wheels.

The opulent sedan is based on the long-wheelbase version of the regular S-Class and gets an additional 180mm wheelbase. There are differentiating design elements like a Maybach-specific grille, alloy wheels, as well as Maybach badges.
