The Maybach S650 car will feature a revised bumper and larger air dams. This updated front-end comes as an attempt to match (or one-up!) the S-Class line-up that recently went through a face-lift itself.

The sedan vehicle also gets new LED headlamps, new tail lamps, and 20-inch alloy wheels instead of the 19-inch ones that are on the S500.
