Less than 24 hours ago, Davido took to Instagram to announced the arrival of his new ‘baby’ to Nigeria, and this baby turned out to be one of 150 limited-production V12-powered Maybach S-Class S680. The big-spending singer only recently returned to the ‘show’ business after taking time to mourn the death of his son, Ifeanyi. 

According to widespread report, the Nigerian celebrated Afro-pop singer David Adeleke, aka Davido, splurged hundreds of thousands of dollars on a brand-new 2023 model of the Maybach S680 just two days after wrapping up his Timeless concert held at TBS, Lagos on 23rd April, 2023. He also reportedly spent a couple millions more on luxury watches and jewelry. 

The Maybach S680 commemorates the late American fashion designer Virgil Abloh. Abloh gets this posthumous honor due to his previous collaborations with the three pointed star’s chief designer on Project Maybach, resulting in two special Maybach models. One is the solar-powered, super-luxurious first-ever Maybach off-road model, while the second is a reimagined S-Class S680, one of which Davido just flew home. Below are details of the Maybach S-Class S680 V12.

Under the hood, the Maybach S-Class S680 V12 boasts a powerful 6.0-liter V12 engine, which produces 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. 

The engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system, which provides excellent traction and handling. The car can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds, and it has a top speed of 155 miles per hour. 

Note that Project Maybach also offers the S680 with a twin-turbo V8 mill cranking out some 496 horsepower. So, it’s noteworthy that OBO went for the baddest V12 mill. 

The automaker presents both powerplants as different trim levels of the luxury sedan. But make no mistake, both the V8 and V12 brims with the same generous list of standard features. They’re all in. 

Maybach S-Class S680 V12 Safety Features

In terms of safety, the Maybach S-Class S680 V12 is equipped with the latest driver assistance and safety features. 

The car comes with adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. The car also has a 360-degree camera system, which provides a bird's-eye view of the vehicle's surroundings. 

We note that this car is verifiably one of the few vehicles that can look ultra-luxe full-size sedans like Rolls-Royce Ghost and Bentley Flying Spur in the eye without flinching or batting an eyelid. 

Although these top sedans may handle similarly on the road, the Maybach offers a level of exclusivity that Flying Spur, for example, cannot promise you.
