Maybach a new legend

Between the 1920s and 1930s, the Maybach brand was at the pinnacle of the luxury car along with Mercedes-Benz. The traditional brand name was revived as a modern high-end exclusive saloon.

The styling of the Maybach sedan, which has a length of 5.7 meters (Maybach 57) or 6.2 meters (Maybach 62), accentuates the legendary character and gives it an unmistakable identity. The high-end luxury saloon's interior is characterized by generous use of the highest quality materials as well as unparalleled elegance and spaciousness.
In technical terms, too, the new Maybach defines the standards at the very peak of the passenger car. The V12 biturbo engine, for instance, delivers overwhelming output and torque values and majestic driving performance.

Highlights of the vehicles on display
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (Reference Vehicle)

The new SLR McLaren was premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the newest Gran Turismo of the 21st century that truly embodies the "Driving Impulse" concept.

Since the 33rd Tokyo Motor Show of 1999, where the SLR made a sensation during its premiere as the "Vision SLR study", the development of the new SLR took four years by drawing on Mercedes-Benz advanced technology, McLaren's expertise in Formula 1 racing, and Mercedes-AMG's engine tuning.

The supercharged 5.5-liter V8 powerplant was developed using Mercedes-AMG's tuning technology, which is based on the company's ample racing experience in the DTM and FIA-GT races. The front midship-mounted engine delivers an output of 460 kW/626 hp and maximum torque of 780 Nm, conferring overwhelming performance appropriate for the Gran Turismo of the 21st century. The body, which features gullwing doors reminiscent of the legendary Mercedes-Benz SLR racing car, employs an extremely rigid monocoque structure made of carbon fiber composite lifted from Formula 1 technology. The impact-absorbing front and rear structures and stiff passenger cell ensure an outstanding level of passive safety.



The brake system of the new SLR employs ceramic brake disks and eight-piston fixed calipers. These combine with the rear-end spoiler -- as the airbrake -- to lend the sports car outstanding stability when braking.

Mercedes-Benz Viano (scheduled for launch in Japan)

Developed as a successor to the V-Class, the Mercedes-Benz Viano multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) offers great seating variability using three-row seats with a choice of two spacious body length (approx 4.8 and 5.0 meters). The front engine/rear drive system using a 3.2-liter V6 unit ensures outstanding comfort and safe and smooth driving.
The lineup consists of three models: the Viano 3.2 TREND (basic), the Viano 3.2 AMBIENTE (higher-grade equipment), and the Viano 3.2 AMBIENTE long (long wheelbase).

Mercedes-Benz Vaneo (scheduled for launch in Japan)

In its compact body size of 4.2 meters, the new Mercedes-Benz Vaneo offers a spacious interior, large sliding doors on both sides and a tailgate at the rear, a flat floor, and highly variable rear seats.
The new MPV is powered by a 1.9-liter SOHC four-cylinder engine. The sandwich concept ensures outstanding collision safety by allowing the engine and transmission to slide underneath the floor in the event of frontal impact in an energy-absorbing measure.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class STATIONWAGON

The new E-Class stationwagon is designed to offer elegant and dynamic styling, high estate-car functionality, and high ride comfort that is characteristic of the E-Class.

The rear air suspension, which keeps the vehicle height at a constant level regardless of the load, and the modern electronic brake system SBC® (Sensotronic Brake Control) are among the innovative systems available in the new wagon to ensure outstanding driving stability and comfort.

The loading compartment features even greater ease of use. In addition to providing a generous capacity of 650 to 1910 liters, it is fitted with split-folding rear seats with a double-folding system as well as EASY-PACK systems which enhance the functionality of the Mercedes stationwagon.

F-Cell (Reference Vehicle)

DaimlerChrysler has worked on fuel cell drive technology since 1994. The newest fuel cell vehicle retains the original interior and loading compartment of the basic A-Class. With a full tank of 350-bar compressed hydrogen, it can travel approximately 150 kilometers and achieve a top speed of 140 km/h.

The Mercedes-Benz / Maybach stand

The Mercedes-Benz/Maybach stand offers a modern architecture which combines monotone metal and glass materials with gentle woods. On the four floor levels of the stand, the dynamism of the forward-looking Stuttgart brands is made visually accessible by presentations using video screens and a LED tower, along with the display vehicles arranged by different subjects specified for each individual floor level.
