Maybach 57 S ‘Antiqua White’ Option

DaimlerChrysler have debuted a ‘Mother Of Pearl’ finish for their Maybach 57 S at The Paris Motor Show this week.

The new finish of the 57 S is applied in multiple layers by experienced specialists using a highly involved process (there are almost twice as many layers than is usual for other luxury cars.)

In contrast to conventional paint finishes using just one base paint to provide the colour tone, two different paints are necessary to achieve this incomparable, mother-of-pearl-like sheen – one of these contains mica. This highlighting material is responsible for the sheen of the paint finish, which varies slightly depending on the lighting angle and shines especially brightly in sunlight.

The paint layers are mainly applied by hand, and several additional layers of clearcoat ensure a highly resistant finish.

How long before one appears on ‘Cribs’?
