While Dieter Zetsche said that anything is possible in the future of the Maybach brand, it seems that the German car manufacturer is preparing a new generation of Maybach. This time, the Stuttgart manufacturer will not use an older platform like S-Class (for the first 57 and 62 models was used the W140 platform), but it will be based directly to W222, the platform of the future S-Class. This generation of S-Class will be launched in 2013, while the new Maybach will debut in 2014.
According to the British from Autocar, the new generation of the luxury model will have a new chance at life after a series of reviews of the first generation have shown a real interest in the new generation. Meanwhile, the Daimler engineers have acknowledged that the use of the W140 platform for Maybach was a mistake, and made the upgrade of the navigation systems and the safety control extremely difficult, costly or impossible due to the electronic systems from 1990 that were taken directly from the S-Class.
The future Maybach will benefit from the new Magic Ride system from Mercedes Benz. Thanks to this suspension system, the German luxury model will provide an exceptional roadholding with a level of comfort equivalent to that of Rolls-Royce Phantom. The new generation of the Phantom will debut in 2016, so Maybach would have a chance to attract some extra customers during the two years before the Phantom launch.
