INSIDE THE MERCEDES MAYBACH: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO ARRIVE IN THIS TOP FLIGHT LUXURY CAR?7 Nov 2016
Perfectly poised, and exuding an air of debonair sophistication, the Mercedes Maybach s600 may look the part in pulling up outside any prestigious event, but what does it actually feel like to travel inside one as part of a luxury London chauffeur service?
How does it feel to bask in the refined opulence, to sit back in those luxurious leather seats, and to ultimately arrive at your engagement in exceptional style?
If you’re thinking of hiring this popular Mercedes chauffeur service for an upcoming event, allow Smart City Prestige to quell your curiosity.
This past week, we took the Maybach out on the road to discover for ourselves exactly what it feels like to arrive at an important event in this top flight luxury car.
Awe-Inspiring First Impressions
Despite being familiar with the Maybach from our behind-the-scenes work at Smart City Prestige’s London chauffeur service, even we couldn’t fail to be impressed when the ever-remarkable s600 arrived to collect us.
At an imposing 18ft long, this world class luxury limousine definitely turned a few heads when it pulled up outside the upscale Four Seasons Hotel on Park Lane, a venue where high style and glamour are hardly uncommon.
Indeed, as Mercedes chauffeur services go, few boast quite the same level of quiet confidence as the Maybach, but then, we already knew that. What we really want to know, is what it feels like to travel inside one.
Chauffeur, if you please…
A First Class London Chauffeur Service
One of Smart City Prestige’s longest-tenured drivers steps out of the car immaculately attired and impeccably polite. A warm welcome greets us, before we’re invited to step inside our chauffeur driven Mercedes and asked whether there’s anything our driver can do to make our journey today all the more pleasant.
Just for today, we’re more than satisfied we have everything we need, and ask simply that we make our engagement with plenty of time for a spot of business networking before the official formalities begin.
Lavish Space, Luxurious Comfort
It would be an understatement to say that the s600 is a car like no other.
Even as big as may appear on the outside, we’re still somewhat surprised by just how spacious it is on the inside. Indeed, it’s an experience more akin to travelling first class on a luxury airliner than traversing London in a chauffeur driven Mercedes.
Ergonomically designed, reclining seats adorned in the finest luxury leather, tray tables, and even the latest in-car entertainment system mean we’re really experiencing something special, and that’s before our journey has even really begun.
The Smoothest, Quietest Mercedes Chauffeur Service
The generous interior space isn’t the only thing that’s surprising about the Mercedes Maybach. Despite its 18ft stature, it’s remarkably silent once our chauffeur turns on the engine and guides us gently onto the open road.
In fact, the s600 has often been described as the quietest car currently on the road, and as we glide through the streets of London it’s easy to see why. If the foot rests, reclining seats, and entertainment systems didn’t leave us feel like we were flying first class, the sheer smoothness of the way the Maybach drives certainly would.
The Big Arrival
True to his word, our Mercedes chauffeur driver gets us to our destination -a black tie fundraiser- with more than enough time to settle in and get acquainted with our fellow dinner guests. Yet whilst we’re thoroughly impressed with the punctuality, what makes the biggest impression outside is the sheer presence that arriving in a chauffeur driven Mercedes Maybach provides.
Forget show-off extravagance or over-the-top grand entrances. When you arrive in the Maybach, you don’t need to show off, you’re already the star attraction.
This is style at its purest, most refined best, all combined with a size, and certain aura of sophistication that guarantees our arrival is memorable for all the right reasons.
