Maybach 57/62

As i was driving in Scottsdale AZ i saw a LONG Mercedes like car fly acroos a intersection. I knew what it was just by looking at it. I turned down the road and chashed it down and it was a Maybach 57 or 62. It's price of $308,000 implies that only a few people will own a Maybach 57; fewer still, the $357,000 long-chassis 62. Small chabges at Maybach for 2005, but change is irrelevant when you design the entire car yourself; every lucky customer's car is tailored to his exact desires. Nothing succeeds like excess, and the list of standard features makes most luxury homes look dated. Proletarian amenities include a DVD player and TWO screens, while the longer, ultra-lux 62 boasts individual rear seat recliners with massagers. Comfort, however, has not eclipsed performance: the 5.5-liter, twim turbo V-12 will get you down the road in a hurry.

0-60 MPH in 4.9 Seconds. from 60-0 in 121 feet is goo stoping for 3 ton car.

Looks too much like an S-Class (which looks like a C-Class). Would rather have a Phantom.

i was at the belgian lauch of the Maybach in 2002 i think it was
and well, there is a lot of luxury in the back, but get behind the wheel and it's just a Mercedes

and about the Phantom, that's a tank

i'd go for a Bentley Arnage T RL
that's got class, luxury, doesn't look like another car and that thing will GO

I was passed by a 62 when I was driving through Greensboro the last time I was out that way. I was not that impressed with it.

(I just had to speed up and pass him back since he had passed me first though)

Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?

I like it compared to the Phantom but would prefer a Bently. It has good performance and ergonomics but besides that it is ugly. It is hard to tell between the 57 and 62. The 57 is 5.7 Meters long and the 62 is 6.2 meters long. Both look like limosines!

Maybach is a failure. Mercedes bombed on this one. The Phantom is the choice for customers in this price bracket. It has presence!!!! That's what owning these huge cars is all about. Size and prestiege.

Enzo_Ferrari the Bentley is not in this group, sorry. It's one level down.

I don't like these type of oversized cars...
...styling is far from sexy, and any car with a 'wooden' interieur should be destroyed :lol:

If I would need a big car with chauffeur, just gif me an audi S8 (with no 'crome' and 'wood') and I'm happy...

Matt

if you ever see a 62 driving then you will know the difference from a 57, it does show pretty good that it's longer



and marcos
