Maybach coming to an end?

Posted on by 7

After years of intense struggling, the ultra-exclusive Maybach luxury brand which belongs to Daimler AG concern has almost got to an end. With just 146 units sold last year and apparently no plan to replace the aging Maybach, the luxury division of Mercedes Mercedes is dying slowly. Listening to Dieter Zetsche, Daimler’s affable CEO looks like neither the new variant, the Landaulet will not budge the needle on sales.

Although the Maybach has proven that it can compete with cars like Rolls Royce, Maybach did not have the desired success. According to Zetsche, Daimler has not decided yet but a decision will certainly be taken: the brand will be saved or...let once again sink into obscurity?

Maybach 62S Landaulet

Maybach was founded in 1921 by Karl Maybach who began production of luxurious and technically perfect motor cars at Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance. His flagship was the powerful twelve-cylinder model, the Maybach Zeppelin Maybach Zeppelin DS 8, the biggest German luxury car of the 1930s. Maybach body shells were manufactured by renowned German specialists, based on individual customer requirements. Hence, every Maybach was a unique creation, reflecting the individual style of its owner; no two cars were alike.

I doubt you have 8000000$ if that so u should pay 20000 and go to school and learn how to write "even thuogh" LOL?!

NOooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooo ooooo... then which car will replace it?

Too bad I love the Maybach

They should not bury the brand.Afterall VW continues to make the Phaeton; a car which should never have been. I like Maybach more than the Bentley even though the latter has been outselling it.
The problem has been that it looks too much like a stretched S-class as opposed to Rolls-Royce which does not have anything in common externally with the 7 series. I think if they changed the styling with the next generation model that might help. I would hate to see the brand die.
