Maybach Motors: More Than One Hundred Years of Excellence
Some of the most distinguished vehicles ever have been attributed to Maybach, and it all started with Wilhelm Maybach, who designed the fabled Opus No. 1. During the 1920’s and 1930’s, when class was king, Maybach’s designs graced the boulevards of top cities like Berlin, Monte Carlo, and New York, Los Angeles, and Paris. While the ravages of war put an end to Maybach production for a time, the brand has returned. Alive and well in the 21st century, these beautiful and distinguished automobiles are a favorite among auto enthusiasts of every stripe.
Handcrafted Luxury and Unique Specifications
One thing we like most about Maybach is that every single car is handcrafted and is built with unique features, according to the desires of each individual customer, just as the first Maybach motor cars were. While the company today is a division of Mercedes Benz, it is still proud of its luxurious heritage.
Only a few new Maybachs are produced each year, and pre-owned Maybachs, while in demand, are in short supply. As to the price of Maybach autos, the 2011 Maybach 57, which has only one competitor, in the Rolls Royce Phantom, shows its clear Mercedes-Benz lineage in its luxurious yet competent appointments. Priced beginning at $372,500.00 USD for the base model and at $412,000.00 for the more opulent S model, it has a 5.5 Liter Overhead Cam engine, a 5 speed shiftable automatic transmission, and is capable of storing memorized settings for up to five drivers.
The 2011 Maybach 62 is a step up from the Maybach 57 S, while the 2011 Maybach Landaulet Convertible, priced beginning at $1,380,000.00 is without a doubt one of the most luxurious vehicles available today. With four doors and a 5 speed automatic transmission, plus a 6.0 Liter V12, 620 hp, 738 lb-ft engine, it is clearly capable of competing with Rolls Royce and Bentley models in the same class.
With a uniquely styled soft-top designed to allow back seat passengers to ride in the open air while the front driver’s compartment remains sealed, this twenty foot long ultra-luxury Maybach limousine can be built to your exact specifications. It comes with a spectacular nineteen inch television screen option, along with a variety of trim packages – and Maybach’s personal concierge is on hand throughout the choice process to ensure you get exactly what you desire.
