Formula One world champion and Mercedes-AMG driver Lewis Hamilton has just added a new car to his fleet in the form of a 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600. The car joins Hamilton’s ever growing fleet which includes the likes of his bespoke Pagani Zonda 760LH, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and classic Shelby Mustang.
Hamilton posted a photo of his new ride on his Instagram account. The Briton opted to have it painted in a simple shade of white and adorned with the eye-catching chrome wheels produced by Mercedes-Benz exclusively for the Maybach.
The 2015 Mercedes-Maybach S600 is 20 cm larger in both length and wheelbase than the long-wheelbase S-Class Saloon. Rear passengers benefit from the increased length with standard equipment that includes executive seats on both left and right and other exclusive details such as innovative voice amplification. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is said to be the world’s quietest production saloon car.
The Mercedes-Maybach S600 gets a 6.0 litre V12 biturbo engine with an output of 530 hp. Maximum torque of 830 Nm is available from 1900 rpm.
