In the interior, the fully leather-trimmed Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Cabriolet brings some of the visionary ideas of the ConceptS-Class Coupé (IAA 2013) to series production.

An eye for detail is also demonstrated in the outer diamond quilting on the seat side bolsters and the Budapest piping. All of the optional extras of the S-Class Cabriolet come as standard on the Mercedes-Maybach, including AIRCAP, AIRSCARF and Swarovski headlamps.
