Seeing a Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 on the road is about as rare as seeing a Bugatti Veyron rolling down the street. The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS left no luxurious stone unturned, which is probably why Ludacris bought one. The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 price starts at $160,500.

The Maybach GLS 600 offers room for four or five passengers. The SUV has a 4.0L V8 Biturbo engine and all-wheel drive. The luxury brand included the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, along with voice control. It has the new Head-Up display and Augmented Video navigation. The backseats have individual seven-inch MBUX tablets plus heated and ventilated seats. All seats also have massage capability, perfect for someone like Ludacris.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 has all of the technology one might want. Keyless start, remote entry, hands-free access, privacy glass, and a panoramic sunroom. The SUV has USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM® Radio.

What else is the Mercedes-Maybach GLS hiding?

According to Robb Report, Ludacris got ahold of the SUV before it even hit dealerships. He has plenty of other supercars like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, and Aston Martin, so a Maybach fits right in. The E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL Intelligent Suspension by Maybach is pretty incredible on its own. It lowers and raises as needed for passengers to enter and exit the vehicle.

There’s a refrigerator with room for champagne bottles (a necessity), and it even has a signature fragrance. The Maybach GLS is “white osmanthus blossom rounded off with spicy tea.” Combined with Nappa leather and aged wood, the inside of the Mercedes-Maybach GLS must smell like a high-end handbag store on 5th Avenue in Manhatten.

The luxury SUV has the latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to keep the driver and passengers safe. Mercedes also enable the vehicle with Active Stop-and-Go Assist. The car can recognize traffic jams and keep the vehicle moving during stop-and-go traffic up to 37 mph. Perfect for those big city traffic jams.

Well, then his other Mercedes was stolen

The Fast & Furious star also had a Mercedes-Amg S63 in his collection. That is, until he left the keys in the ignition and the vehicle was stolen. Reports said that Ludacris stopped to use an ATM in the $200,000 Mercedes-Amg S63 when he left the keys in the car. When using the ATM just feet away, a thief snuck in and drove off. The police tracked the vehicle with an iPad left and located both not too far away.

If you get the chance to drive one of these luxury cars, don’t leave the keys running in it at the ATM. But definitely let the world know how that Mercedes-Maybach GLS smells.
