Maybe its the SLS effect or just something that nudges different taste buds. Have seen a Maybach some years ago and that car sure had presence. At the end of the day, all that matters is that it should make sense to the one sitting inside this opulent beast.
Can't wait to see one on our Indian Streets though...

Cheers

Finally, Finally you posted it Sid!

I quite like the aggressive design and rims of the 52S than that of the 62. Now to wait and see who prefers to buy a stretched W220 S in fancy dress over the Phantom and Mulsanne.

Found it in rediff archives : Rasiklal Manikchand taking delivery of the Maybach. The girl is (ideally was, it's a 7 year old news) the luckiest 21-year-old in India, indeed !

Spotted both of these, the 57S and the 62 today at Shaman Motors, Kalina Mumbai, the 57S looks quite sporty and very similar to the S class while the 62 with its two-tone paint has a class of its own!

All black 57s with white interior is an awesome looker. But I agree if I was to spend this much dough it would have to be S600 stretch with 2 sided seats and recliners.

"According to an unnamed Mercedes-Benz source speaking with AutoWeek, the German automaker is killing off its Maybach line in 2013.

The unsurprising news comes after the brand was resurrected in 2002, but failed to meet sales expectations with its two core models, the Maybach 57 and 62. Further solidifying its fate, a deal with Aston Martin to aid in the development of future Maybachs fell through earlier this year.

According to the AutoWeek insider, the plan is to continue to sell both Maybach models through the end of 2013, after which the fifth-generation S-Class will go on sale. When that happens, three new variants of the S-Class will be available, including an all-new, range-topping S600 that brings back the Pullman moniker and may be better suited to competing with the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce.

Well I think its a very bold move by Mercedes to bring their flagship brand into India. Agreed, the 62 is massive and impractical (its the world's longest car currently in production), but then again some of the uber-rich of our country have parking lots massive enough for it. Is it an everyday car? No.

Is it a car to take to your personal getaway and park it in a lawn, well Yes, because that's the only place it could fit anyways!!

Correct me if I am wrong but many people report having seen the Maybach 62 on the road in Bombay already. (Source: Facebook) So perhaps someone does have the gall to buy this behemoth. I salute that person and everytime its parked successfully, I'll for the driver.

Default Maybach to be knocked out!

Breaking News Daimler to Axe Maybach

I'm not sure if I saw this coming...but when I think about it now, it seems pretty obvious. I'll let the numbers speak for themselves:

Worldwide sales in 2010
Rolls Royce - 2700

Bentley - 5000

Total sales over a period of 9 years [2002 - 2010]
Maybach - 3000

Sad, ain't it? no wonder it's being shut. Absolutely disappointing sales figures, considering the insane amount of R&D that had gone in making the car

I'd blame the advertising dept. for this debacle, mostly because hardly anybody from the general public even knows what versions they have, let alone the pricing. Aand I don't remember anybody saying "I want to buy a Maybach when I get rich"

Anyway, D-C will come up with 3 brand spankin' new S-Class models in 2013, that'll be replacing Maybach with the 'Pullman' moniker.

I personally found the cars very interesting! esp. the 62. I guess Sr. Ambani drives one in Mumbai (correct me if i'm wrong, though)
