I read in the FT.com that Aston Martin and Mercedes are actively discussing a tie up where Aston will build the Maybach. In return , Mercedes will provide engines for Aston Martin

Hm, Not bad as a rendering. But I feel the rear Q is very much inspired from Bentley Continental Series and what am I seeing?!?! Maybach going the Phantom way with the suicide doors!

I, on the other hand- feel it looks cheap (Comparitively, of course!)! Not a royal looking car for the price its worth! Compared to an RR, this wont make a statement if you arrive in one.

For example- take a close look at the front grill, and the rear glass + bonnet integration. Something is looking out-of place and 'chinese' in the design!

I had once said that it looks by, for and of Shanghai.
Probably Maybach have realised that not many are interested in buying an overrated and overpriced S-class and looks like they have discovered a huge market among the rich Chinese and are trying to cater to their taste in every possible way.

The front lights have a hint of F700 in them, and the grille? a korean or chinese creation.
The rear doesn't look at all well.Something from bentley,something from 6 SERIES(!!!)
Anyway don't underestimate them, and i believe in all probability that this rendering is just a very rough sketch of what to expect.

It's certainly horrible.

What is this? Elderly-American-millionaire bad taste?



I can tell you, I'm never going to have one of these on my drive!




(well, actually, that would be true even if it was beautiful )

It looks garish to be honest. The design has a cheap Chinese rip-off feel to it. The rear look obviously looks too much like the Bentley Continental Series and the two-tone paint ending abruptly at the rear doors is just awkward.

What Maybach needs a completely new design.

It should have some cues of the Mercedes styling but apart from that it should have an image of its own.

They should design Mercedes cars using Maybach's styling and not the other way around.

Currently the front looks inspired by the F800 concept and rear resembles more like the AMG SLS

Also things like how the white portion ends just looks as if it was an ad don and not part of the car.

The only way to sell the Maybach would be its design, it needs road presence.
A Chrysler 300C turns more heads than a Maybach in my opinion.

whats the right pronunciation of this brand?
Is it 'MyBock' or 'MayBack' ?

I often feel people would talk a lot more about this car if they could pronounce it properly. I often feel a little embarrassed to talk about this car, wondering if ive got the name right.
