Ned Flanders may get nervous at the remarkable length of this S-Class Pullman, but it’s really Mercedes-Benz executives who need to get nervous. This thing’s going to be a 21-foot flop.
We’ve seen a couple of Pullman Maybach mules around, but none in action before … that is, until this week where one was captured in the wilds of the Nürburgring.
Here was the original plan: Daimler AG would shutter the Maybach marque and replace it with a hyper-luxe Mercedes-Benz S-Class marketed as the Pullman. New reports, however, are indicating the Maybach name may live to see another sunrise as the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman Maybach. Here’s Why this Rumor Could Be True: When Daimler AG […]
It’s officially done. Maybach, Daimler’s attempt at competing with the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce, has officially discontinued all models for 2013. The brand was hemmoraging money. Maybach lost around $500,000 on each car that they sold. Nevermind the cars that sat on the lots because they we’re so incredibly expensive. To take the place […]
No matter where you live, seeing an abandoned car isn’t all that uncommon. What is uncommon is seeing a Maybach worth 350k left to rot. This 57 has been languishing in a garage in Cannes for four years, and as the video shows, the locals haven’t been all that kind to it. The hood ornament […]
With chairman Dieter Zetsche’s recent decision to stop development of the replacement models for the Maybach 57 and 62, the writing was on the wall for this historical brand which represented the ultimate luxury vehicle only the very rich could afford. In its golden days, a Maybach was the carriage that ferried princes, statesmen and
by Teddy Field If Tiffany’s made a car, this would be it. The Maybach 57 S has the fittings from God’s lavatory, and enough power to make the devil jealous. Unlike a Rolls, you don’t get gilded trumpeters to announce your arrival. This is a car for rich people who are secure with who they […]
At first, you won’t believe your eyes at the treatment this Maybach receives in the video, as it’s hacked and chopped til it looks like Batman’s convertible. When you see a Maybach, its usual backdrop is against a gleaming tower or else you see it with some executive type getting in. Maybachs are the epitome
Despite the Mercedes-Benz division’s recent stellar performance, Daimler’s hyper luxury division remains in the doldrums, with the direction of the Maybach brand still uncertain. But for better or worse, it seems that the end of the month will see a definitive decision on the fate of the struggling marque. At this point, there seems to
In spite of Maybach’s sales performance, or maybe because of it, Daimler has seen fit to show the Xenatech Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe at Geneva, coinciding with the Auto Show there which opens this week. But a showroom floor is not a fitting place to showcase the ultra-luxury, -expensive and exclusive Maybach 57S. To provide
