Abdul Rahman Albisher & Zaid Alkazemi Company, the official distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Kuwait, unveiled on Thursday, 12 February, the latest additions to their high performance and luxury Mercedes-Benz family — the all new AMG GT and Maybach S-Class 600 — as part of the Concours d’Elegance exhibition being held at the Marina Crescent.
Promising an incomparable driving performance, the new AMG GT S is the embodiment of speed, safety, elegance and handling, while the ultra-extravagant Maybach sub brand oozes exclusivity and prestige, elevating the Mercedes-Benz luxury segment to a whole new level.
“Launching the new Mercedes flagships at the Concours d’Elegance is a clear indication that we are putting the new models on a high pedestal and we are certain Mercedes-Benz fans will not be disappointed,” commented Michael Ruehle, CEO, A.R. Albisher & Z. Alkazemi Company.
The new GT S combines driving dynamics and first-class racetrack performance with superb everyday practicality and efficiency that sets new standards in the segment. With its newly developed AMG 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine with an output rating of 375 kW, the new GT S underscores the driving performance expected from AMG. The Mercedes-AMG GT S also boasts hallmark active and passive safety of the very highest calibre, adopting numerous Intelligent Drive assistance systems that are familiar from the new S-Class.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class on the other hand is a vehicle that creates its own niche in the luxury segment, raising the already impossibly high S-Class benchmark to an entirely new level and positioning itself in a class of its own. Impressive spaciousness, elegant design, premium craftsmanship and extrovert luxury, melds the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach to produce a stylish, effortless superiority that makes the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class truly unique.
Presented as a new sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, some of the features that distinguish this model from production models include extra spaciousness with lavishly designed, prestigious interiors offering extensive scope for individualisation that will meet the requirements of even the most discerning customers worldwide.
Rear passengers in the Maybach especially benefit from the additional 20cm added to the length and wheelbase dimensions of an S-Class Saloon, as well as from the fact that in the rear, the MercedesMaybach S-Class is the world's quietest production saloon vehicle.
Powered by a top of the range V12 bi-turbo engine with output of 390kW that completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is available with numerous new assistance systems that make driving even more comfortable and safer.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will be available in the Kuwait from February 2015, while the Mercedes AMG GT and GT S will be available from March 2015 onwards.
