I always thought the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class was the ultimate, top most expression of luxury from Mercedes-Benz. Man was I wrong. The German luxury automaker took it’s Maybach S-Class a step further into unreachable luxury, debuting a very Limited edition that makes the standard sedan pale in comparison. Enter the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class High Car.

Literally translated from English, high from the likes of high fashion translate to “high” and car meansbecause.” So, we’re looking at the highest of car… collecting? Fashion? Tea specific use of the term high Iit’s usually associated with very limited quantities and not something you could or would wear everyday. The same could be said with this Mercedes-Maybach High Car. It’s not made or really suitable for everyday use, and there will be an extremely limited number of the cars available for purchase: 150 altogether.

Starting with the color scheme, you’ll be able to spot the Maybach High Car with it’s dramatic two-tone paint of a nautical dark blue up top and rose gold-like shimmer paint on the bottom half. The rims are also matching with the same hue of blue as the upper portion of the car. Yet the real luxurious details lie inside the car.

The interior color scheme continues the elegance and tones of the exterior. Loop, a woven yarn-like fabric, covers the interior in the same blue and rose gold, from the head rests to the door panels. The curly accents the crystal white leather covering every touch point and seating surface, accented with matching blue contrast stitching.

Owners can also sip a little Dom Pérignon while your driver whisks you away, in special rose-gold colored champagne flutes — you guessed it — to match the rose gold in the interior and exterior as well. All while resting your feet on floor mats that might be impossible to clean (or you could just throw them out because) made of linen and mohair. Mohair is the yarnlike fabric made from the hair of the Angora goat known for its luster and sheen.

The diamond-studded cherry on top of this gold-flecked cake is what the High Car refers to. Every vehicle will come with an exclusive handbag selection that’s inspired by the car itself. The bags will be made with the same materials used in the interior and will be available to purchase in early 2023 from the Mercedes luxury goods store (that I didn’t know existed) called Maybach Icons of Luxury.

Mercedes hasn’t released pricing for this Maybach High Car yet, but considering that just 150 will be made and a regular Maybach S-Class starts at just under $185,000, the price for something even more limited and elegant will take a god-like bank account to afford.
