Maybach is poised to facelift its line-up, according to reports.
Design images of what are reported to be the facelifted car have leaked on to the internet, with reports suggesting it could be launched at the Beijing motor show in April.
Changes are said to be cosmetic, and include an updated front bumper, new grille and bonnet design, and LED lights.
However, Merc boss Dieter Zetsche has yet to confirm that a next-generation car is being planned, adding to rumours that the brand is being axed.
"The contribution of Maybach is not significant or relevant but there are only two players in this market and we are one of them. But there are no plans in the long run," he told Autocar last December.
