Mercedes-Maybach’s new Night Series package, suitable for all Mercedes-Maybach series models, offers a new dark look with extravagant exterior and interior elements. Details include dark chrome elements, surfaces that catch the light like a cut jewel and interiors that take the Maybach design language to new levels of exclusivity.
“The Mercedes-Maybach brand goes beyond the product, which is why it is so important to create experiences and options that fit our customers’ status and personal style. Night Series is the next step in offering a true luxury, tailored experience targeted at a new audience, but simultaneously responding to current customers’ desires,” said Daniel Lescow, Head of Mercedes-Maybach.
The Night Series was unveiled at a private residence in Greenwich Village, New York. The exclusive pop-up cocktail evening, recreating the Maybach clubhouse vibe, was a suitably sumptuous and discreet experience for attendees. The Night Series package was exhibited on three Maybach models: EQS SUV, the S-Class and GLS.
The Night Series package designed for the three demonstration models all included elements in dark chrome, rose gold details and wheel design featuring dark-glossy Maybach patterns, as well as interior herringbone decor. Under its “Black labels and backlights” motto, a new and exclusive start-up animation for the user interface compliments the Night Series colour palette. In addition, each model also features its own unique design signatures.
The Night Series version of the EQS SUV – the first electric Mercedes-Maybach and the brand’s newest model – features headlights adorned with a Maybach emblem on rose gold and with dark chrome refinements. The grille panel is enhanced with darkened Maybach pinstripes, while the air intake inserts in the front bumper are refined with a dark chrome-plated pattern of the Maybach emblem.
The EQS SUV is brimming with unique accents and details, including side windows with generous, highly polished, black edging in 3D design. A rear and roof spoiler complement its sporty-aerodynamic trim. The running board is refined in black, sporting a Maybach emblem in dark chrome. The signature paint finishes include Obsidian Black, Manufaktur Diamond White Bright and an exclusive two-tone paint finish in Obsidian Black and Mojave Silver combination.
The EQS SUV’s interior is carpeted with Econyl. The leather used is vegetable tanned in Crystal White or Black and Black Pearl colour combination with contrast top-stitching in Dark Basalt Grey. The trim comprises open-pored herringbone with genuine aluminium pilasters.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Night Series version includes various paint finishes in grey, black and white hues, as well as an exclusive two-tone paint finish in Onyx Black and Mojave Silver combination. Other details include rose gold in the headlights and dark metallic chrome elements, adding to the design’s elegant, stretched silhouette. This aesthetic is further accentuated by the two visible tailpipe trims in dark chrome and black.
The interior expands the exclusivity of the Maybach S-Class with two interior variants: Black with Black Pearl nappa leather or Manufaktur Deep White and Black. A noble mother-of-pearl effect in the black-and-Black Pearl nappa leather option, together with the golden-grey glossy piping subtly accentuates the interior.
The GLS Night Series boasts a front with elegant dark chrome elements including an upright Mercedes star on the hood, radiator grille, trim parts and Maybach pattern in the side air intake. The headlights feature subtle and high-quality rose gold details, and the side view sports several noble dark chrome accents.
The extendable running board is dark anodized. The exclusive wheel is in 23-inch format, styled with high-quality inserts including a Maybach pattern, underlining the character-defining side view. In addition to a paint finish in a white tone or Obsidian Black, an exclusive two-tone paint finish in Obsidian Black and Mojave Silver is available.
The GLS has two elegant interior fittings. The first is black combined with Black Pearl nappa leather, the second is Crystal White combined with Black Pearl accents. The superior herringbone decor, and silver pilasters in an open-pored brown finish, underline its sophisticated craftsmanship.
While commenting on the Night Series, Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of the Mercedes-Benz Group, said: “Night Series is the most progressive Maybach design package – it’s our already well-known supreme aesthetics, heightened with exquisite, darkened motifs. Our goal was to create an exciting new style, offering a playful sense of rebellion that is unexpected to what you usually see in a Mercedes-Maybach.”
In addition to the enhancements mentioned above, Maybach Icons of Luxury will soon be presenting a collection inspired by the Night Series. Pieces will include bags, sneakers and eyewear. For the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the Night Series package “will be purchasable soon.” However, the package will be available for the EQS SUV alongside its market introduction, followed by the Mercedes-Maybach GLS in early 2024.
