MERCEDES-BENZ Europe: Official Press Release

Maybach and de GRISOGONO Present a Diamond-Studded Luxury Saloon
  • Ceremonial unveiling during the "de GRISOGONO Party" at the Cannes Film Festival
  • Maybach 62S as an extraordinary one-off model with precious-carat diamonds in the interior
  • Launch of the joint "Maybach individualisation by GRISOGONO" project

It's considered to be one of the most prestigious events at the Cannes Film Festival: the legendary "de GRISOGONO Party" in the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc at Cap d’Antibes. One particularly precious highlight is set to sparkle here this evening. Swiss jewellery manufacturer and watchmaker de GRISOGONO and German luxury car maker Maybach will be unveiling a Maybach 62S Saloon studded with precious-carat diamonds to a gathering of around 1.000 guests from the international jet set, film industry and show business. The luxurious gems are initially only included on the rear centre armrest. But de GRISOGONO and Maybach are currently looking at further options for individualising the interior with diamonds and other gemstones – on the steering wheel, shift lever or seats, for example. Today's unveiling of the refined Maybach 62S marks the launch of the joint "Maybach individualisation by de GRISOGONO" project by the two luxury manufacturers.

Over the coming months, the Saloon will be studded with further diamonds and gemstone creations before being presented officially at the Dubai International Motor Show between 10 and 14 November 2011. This is the second time that Stuttgart-based luxury brand Maybach has been a main sponsor of the "de GRISOGONO Party".
