Maybach GLS Edition 100 celebrates a century of automotive production

Mercedes-Maybach pushes the luxury brand’s most opulent models to extremes in their elegance, technology and features. It has had an eventful history, but Maybach is now celebrating the centenary of its first production car and commemorating the moment with a special edition GLS. It’s called the Edition 100, and it adds yet another layer of comfort and convenience to the overflowing spec sheet.

The Maybach GLS special is part of a pair. The company also announced the S-Class Edition 100. Both, limited to 100 units each, are painted in the same hand-painted two-tone Cirrus Silver / Nautical Blue. The GLS receives a unique set of forged wheels, although both models feature Edition 100 markings. Both interiors are also identical, offering either a special leather interior or designo crystal white / pearl silver gray. The GLS also has additional soundproofing.

One place where the two Edition 100 models differ is under the hood. The S-Class gets a V12 while the GLS uses a V8, although it packs a punch. The engine produces 557 horsepower (415 kilowatts), which is not far behind the sedan’s 612 horsepower (456 kW) V12. The GLS looks bold with its two-tone paintwork and towering size. The brand’s double M badge is located on the D-pillar of the SUV with an “Edition 100” plaque underneath.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic Edition 100 will begin arriving at dealerships in its first markets in 2022. Other markets will be added throughout the year. Order books open in the fourth quarter of this year, but production is limited, so you’ll want to act quickly if you want one of the Maybach special models. Mercedes-Maybach is already setting the stage for its next 100 years, presenting the all-electric and opulent Maybach EQS concept of the SUV at the Munich motor show.
