Read somewhere that even Manikchand's daughter sits in the front...but thats to help the driver with all the controls in the 'cockpit'

And the front seats would be equally luxurious, just that they don't recline like the ones in the rear. But you wouldn't care abt that when ur in control of the 500+ horses and a LOT of torque which would even put a few supercars to shame..

Default 4 Maybachs

The 3rd Maybach is in Haryana, I got the inform directly from DaimlerChrysler India Ltd (DCIL). But they didn't disclose the person. Actually there is 4 Maybachs in our country. The 4th is DCIL's demo car in black-brown colour which where displayed in Auto Expo & Brand Shows.

DCIL agree that Maybach sale were not upto the expectation, but they are expecting to sale one or two this year. Actually Mr.Ambani has imported his car from UK.

I think its because the fact that some how a maybach fails to say that its a super luxury car. i mean u may approx 4 Cr. + and what u get is an oversized S Class with some new Instruments thats all. But at the same place an RR looks and feels more luxurious then Maybach. And ya who can come close to the prestige added with the word " RR "

In some TV interview i had heard Vijay Mallaya say "Maybachs are not VFM in india, i do have a Maybach but in LA not India."

Even the ambanis have their Maybach imported from UK. I guess that explains why DCIL isn't seeling much of the maybachs.

personally a maybach is an oversized ugly piece of machinery which one spends rs 4cr+ and looks like a bafoon whilst self driving, as opposed to a phantom or a flying spur which reeks of uber good looks and classe. the latter for me anyday and they even cost less.

I disagree...Maybach is better looking than the Rolls..But Bentley is different..For me Rolls is like a MACK truck from front..Comfort is one of the most important factor in a super-luxury car..Maybach's multi-functional seats is the most comfortable than the soaf seats of Rolls..The massagers, heating & cooling of its seats make us feel more relaxed in the limo..Airmatic & all others gizmos add to the comfort..More over it has won lot of awards for luxury by the various agencies..

the only maybacj which i would own over a Rolls or a bentley would be Maybach 57 S in black and thats it...a perfect drivers car, but if i have to pick i would pick any other then rolls, maybach 62, 57, bentley arnage..

arnage has lost it for not being able to come up with a nice design after companies split a long time back and they are still stuck in the mid 90s..
