Buyers can get wood covering the back of the front seats.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will debut on Thursday 19 November at 1:00 PM GMT (8:00 AM EST). Accompanying the announcement, the company is showing off the swanky saloon's rear door and quarter panel.

The Maybach S-Class takes the regular version of the already luxurious saloon and makes it even more opulent. The lavish four-door's wheelbase is also 18 centimetres (7.08 inches) longer than the standard car so that occupants in the back benefit from a lot more legroom.

Mercedes is already teasing a few of the Maybach's more opulent features. The rear seats offer a new massage function in the calf rests and separate heating for the neck and shoulders. In a particularly extravagant touch, buyers can specify wood trim covering the backs of the front seats and between the two rear passenger seats.

Spy shots reveal that the front portion of the cabin is like the new S-Class with a massive, angled screen dominating the centre stack. The driver looks at a digital instrument. In comparison to the standard saloon, expect the Maybach version to have more lavish interior materials.

On the outside, the Maybach S-Class looks a little different than the Mercedes version. The front wears a redesigned grille and fascia, and the rear has small changes to the bumper. The double-M logo for Maybach appears on the C-pillar. Buyers can specify the exterior in a two-tone paint scheme with a dividing line between the colours.

Maybach news:

The Maybach will be the only S-Class variant available with a V12 engine. It'll reportedly be a twin-turbo 6.0-litre powerplant that will make 621 bhp (463 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-metres) of torque.

Motor1.com will have a live first-look video to show off all the Maybach's opulence that you'll be able to watch following the debut.
