This past weekend, our friends at the three-pointed star decided to reveal something it's been hiding from the world. That's right, an all-new Mercedes-Maybach model will be coming down the 'pike.

This is a bit of a surprise given that no one had the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet being the next Maybach variant to debut. All eyes were on the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. Well, everyone was wrong.

Good on Mercedes for keeping it under wraps!

Seen in a Mercedes-issued teaser clip, the Maybach S650 is expected to be as fine trimmed as any Mercedes comes. Though the marque remains tight lipped, here's what we're thinking:

1) Given the nomenclature, we're thinking it either gets the S65 AMG's V12 or it gets an enhanced version with, yes, more power.

2) It will receive some unique touches to distinguish it from an already capable lineup of S cabs. That will include special wood trim, unique leather details on the seating and unique alloy wheels.

3) Only 300 to be built on a global basis.

Any other thoughts, Spies? Weigh in after seeing the isolated images from the clip as well as the video, below!
