2018 Maybach S 560 Vs 2018 Bentley Flying Spur V8
What is beyond that horizon called “extravagance?” Is there a word to describe the feeling you have when you passed euphoria 12 miles ago? The ultra-luxury class exists to plumb the depths of that question. Extravagance isn’t optional on these vehicles, it’s a key selling point. Two of the most exclusive and sought-after models in this niche segment are the Mercedes-Maybach S 560 4MATIC® and the Bentley Continental Flying Spur V8.
Both opulent sedans provide first-class experiences for drivers and passengers alike (assuming that the buyers will not always be driving themselves). Although both are crafted for extravagant luxury and performance, the two do have features and specs where they diverge enough for there to be an edge. Here’s a brief comparison between features.
